Jolla gets some more improvements with the latest update, v1.0.7.16. There’s 4G, folder support, fullscreen HTML5 browser support and more.

Interestingly the update was available to users who had the ‘First One’ covers. Those who didn’t received it on the same day just a few hours later.

  • Switching between browser tabs remembers your last position and no longer reloads the tab content
  • HTML5 Fullscreen support in Browser
  • Personalize shortcuts on lockscreen pull-down menu [Settings > System > Shortcuts > Lock Screen]
  • Support for additional bluetooth profiles: PBAP (phone book) and HID (input devices)
  • Support for traditional and simplified Chinese Handwriting Recognition in virtual keyboard
  • Additional settings for browser app [Settings > Apps > Browser > Privacy]
    • Option to clear private data in browser
    • “Do not track” option to inform sites that you do not wish to be tracked
  • Quick scrolling feature enabled in Sailfish views
  • SIM Application Toolkit support – enables access to SIM and network-specific add-on services from your operator (e.g. recharging prepaid credit, changing subscription and phone network setting etc depending on the operator)
  • Quick access to SailfishOS updates [Settings >System >Sailfish OS updates]
    • Includes a new setting for update checks (Manual / WLAN only / Always)
  • The phone is now ICASA certified (South Africa) and labelled under Settings > About product

How to update?

If your Jolla is connected to internet, an OS update notification should pop up shortly. If you just can’t wait, you can manually trigger an OS update check as follows:

  • Open Settings app
  • Go to System > About Product
  • Pull down the pulley menu and select ‘Check for update’
  • Once an OS update notification is received, tap on it and follow the instructions.

Do not reboot the device while the OS update installation is in progress. The process takes up to 10 minutes. During the update, the device screen might blank out. You can awaken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress. When the upgrade has completed successfully, you will see the LED light up red before the device restarts.

In rare circumstances, you may have to try a second time to get through the update successfully.
