BBM for iOS update now available to download

Back on the 19th of this month, BlackBerry released a hotfix for BBM for the BlackBerry 10, Android and iOS platforms which made a change to the way the emoticons were shown, after users complained about stickers being set to the default.

Instead of stickers being set to the default, BlackBerry changed it so that the emoticon picker will land on two different tabs depending on what you’re doing:

  • If the text field is blank, the emoticon picker will take you left most sticker pack.
  • If you’ve written words in the text field, pressing this emoticon button will instead take you to the emoticons tab

At the time, the update rolled out immediately for BlackBerry and Android and was to roll out for iOS “shortly” afterwards.

It has taken longer than expected but the update is now finally available for BBM for iOS and includes everything that was previously announced:

  • We’ve refined BBM to look more at home on iOS 8
  • Improved layout for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
  • Send stickers in group chats!
  • Timed pictures and messages can now be viewed multiple times until the timer expires
  • Added a new 60 second timer option
  • Bug fixes & performance improvement

This takes the latest version of BBM for iOS to v2.6.1.31.
