Beeper Mini 恢復,並且先提供免費使用

前幾天提到「蘋果出手幹掉 Beeper Mini 了」,當天就有進度了,不過到了昨天官方的說明才出來:「Beeper Mini Is Back」,Hacerk News 上對應的討論在「Beeper Mini is back (beeper.com)」這邊可以看到。

目前的 iMessage 只剩下 e-mail 的部分,電話號碼的部分目前是掛的,看起來是想辦法繼續繞:

Phone number registration is not working yet. All users must now sign in with an AppleID. Messages will be sent and received via your email address rather than phone number. We’re currently working on a fix for this.

另外值得一提的是,這幾天 iOS 有推更新,但在「About the security content of iOS 17.2 and iPadOS 17.2」與「About the security content of iOS 16.7.3 and iPadOS 16.7.3」裡面沒看到跟 iMessage 有關的說明。(當然也有可能塞進去卻沒有講...)

所以基於現在的情況,他們決定先免費提供使用 (另外一方面是行銷操作,這樣會帶來更多安裝數量):

We’ve made Beeper free to use. Things have been a bit chaotic, and we’re not comfortable subjecting paying users to this. As soon as things stabilize (we hope they will), we’ll look at turning on subscriptions again. If you want to keep supporting us, feel free to leave the subscription on 🙂.

另外後面的這句話有帶出一些額外的訊息,提到他們有聯絡蘋果,但沒有從蘋果那邊收到任何消息,這也代表他們應該還沒收到 C&D 之類的要求:

Despite reaching out, we still have not heard anything directly from Apple.

貓與老鼠還在繼續玩...

話說隔壁棚 GoogleEpic 那邊的戰場可熱鬧了...
