Introducing BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2

BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2 provides you with new features and improvements designed to make your BlackBerry device even more secure and to help you be more productive.

The BlackBerry Hub icon BlackBerry Hub

From the list of attachments, you can open the email related to an attachment, making it easier to reply to the message.

You can clear the list of recent contacts, to prevent those contacts from appearing as suggestions when you compose a message.

The Calendar icon Calendar

The Meeting Mode feature has been enhanced. You can choose the calendars, as well as the type and duration of calendar events that are affected by Meeting Mode.

When you schedule a meeting, you can now see when the meeting occurs in other time zones.

You can set your calendar to display growing numbers to indicate the busyness of a day. The size indicates only how busy you are during working hours.

The Camera icon Camera

Improvements have been made to the Camera app, for better results in areas with low light.

By default, the Face Detection feature is turned on and it has been improved to bring faces into better focus.

The BlackBerry Assistant icon BlackBerry Assistant

You can set, pause, resume, or stop the timer by using the BlackBerry Assistant app.

Things you can do with the BlackBerry Assistant

The gesture icon Peek gesture

When you slide your finger up from the bottom of the screen and hold your finger in place, the date appears at the top of the screen.

The USB icon File transfers

MTP support has been added to the BlackBerry 10 OS, allowing you to more quickly transfer media files between your computer and your device using a USB connection.

The BlackBerry Browser icon BlackBerry Browser

Voice support has been added to the BlackBerry Browser. This feature lets you hear content on webpages read aloud.

The BlackBerry Browser has been updated with more protection against known malware and phishing attacks.

To access the Private Browsing feature, you can now tap The Tabs icon in the lower-left corner of the screen. If you have other tabs open, you can switch back to them during a private browsing session.

The Lock icon Security

BlackBerry Protect includes an anti-theft feature that is designed to provide more protection for the data on your device by more closely associating your device with your BlackBerry ID.

If you set up your device using the Setup app and you enter or create a BlackBerry ID, BlackBerry Protect is turned on automatically. If you turn off BlackBerry Protect, you can turn on the feature later from the BlackBerry Protect Settings screen.

If you update your device to BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2 from an earlier version of the BlackBerry 10 OS, and you don’t have BlackBerry Protect turned on, a notification provides information about how to turn on BlackBerry Protect.

When the BlackBerry Protect anti-theft feature is turned on, you must enter your BlackBerry ID to perform a security wipe. When you wipe the device, (for example, to switch to a new device or give away your device) the anti-theft feature is turned off.

If your device is ever lost or stolen, you can log in to the BlackBerry Protect website at protect.blackberry.com. From the BlackBerry Protect website, you can try to view your device location on a map, lock your device, and wipe the data from your device.

The BlackBerry Hub icon Secure messaging

If your email account is supported by Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, you can use S/MIME for that account. If your organization uses an LDAP directory, you can configure your settings so that S/MIME certificates for users in the LDAP directory are available to you.

Configure your LDAP server settings

The Phone icon Phone

If your organization supports the use of multiple phone lines, you can make calls and send text messages using different phone numbers. Having different phone lines helps you and your organization to distinguish between personal use and work use of your device.

Switch between your work phone line and personal phone line
