I am not sure how we missed this one but on Friday, BlackBerry rolled out a beta update for BBM on iOS devices. This update takes the version to 2.7.0.33 and adds Touch ID and passcode protection support for BBM.

What’s new?

  • Secure BBM with a passcode and Touch ID
  • Select and delete multiple chats, contacts and groups at once
  • Added new color display names in multi-person chats and group conversations
  • Moved My Profile to navigation menu

Known Issues:

The following are known issues with this build:

  • BBM-38866 BBM Screens may be visible without entering passcode while on a BBM Voice call by tapping on new message notifications and dismissing BBM repeatedly.
  • BBM-38868 Chat Screen is visible behind Touch ID prompt after tapping on new message notification.
