Halide has a new update in the App Store that includes a number of changes, the most notable being one designed to help ensure that an iOS bug doesn’t mean people lose their photos.

According to Halide’s App Store version 2.7.1 release notes, a new Image Rescue update has been released to ensure users can save their photos. It’s to help deal with an iOS bug that apparently prevents the app from saving snaps as they’re taken. And while Apple has “largely fixed the problem,” it hasn’t done so to Halide’s satisfaction.

Still, we don’t like the idea of ​​any of our users losing photos, whether it’s our bug or not. So we updated our “Image Rescue” feature to fix the problem. When iOS refuses to save photos, Halide stores a copy in the app, so you can continue taking photos. Of course, we’ll show you a notification that something is going on, but you can ignore the problem until later.

When you’re ready to get your photos out of Halide, just open our photo editor. You’ll notice a large banner at the top explaining that we’ve saved your photos. Tap it and we’ll show you the photos we’ve saved. From there, you can either try saving them again (because sometimes this iOS bug fixes itself) or you can tap the action button in the top right to share them to your phone once. another way, like AirDropping on your Mac.

The new Halide update also includes a new option to apply batch actions to photos as well.

Just tap the “Select” button in the top right, then tap the photos you want to act on to select them. You can tap the Trash icon to delete them, or tap the Action button for… other actions. Like sending them to another application.

The new update is available for anyone who already owns the app and you can update it through the app store‘s update mechanism. Everybody can download it again now. Halide is one of the best camera apps for iPhone and should definitely be checked out!
