Jun 16 2024 - V6.4

What's new in V6.4

This release affects some aspects of how annunciations are handled.

  • A mute button has been added to the toolbar. This will mute traffic annunciations temporarily for 5 minutes. This is useful if you are operating at a busy controlled airport where traffic alerts can get frequent and separation is being handled by you and ATC.
  • New annunciations tell you if internet coverage becomes unavailable or is restored.
  • A new annunciation will remind you that the app is active when you close it while the mode is active. A notification will also pop up if you have allowed notifications.

May 09 2024 - Barometer Access Permission

New Permission Request for iOS 17.4 And Later

iOS 17.4 added a new permission request for apps that need to access the internal barometer.

AvTraffic needs this to determine your current pressure altitude and your altitude by applying the nearby QNH.

Apple has included this permission with the 'Motion and Fitness Sensors' section of the 'Privacy and Security' iOS Settings.

If you get asked to give AvTraffic permission to access the 'Motion and Fitness Sensors', please reply yes.

Understandably, you may wonder why AvTraffic needs to access the 'Motion and Fitness' sensors. But it is only the barometer that is being accessed.
