The 1inch Wallet for iOS upgrades: added and removed features
The iOS version of the 1inch Wallet is back on the App Store, offering more intuitive user experience and compatibility with other wallets.
Keeping users up to date on app changes, the 1inch Network gladly announces the revamped 1inch Wallet for iOS. To comply with the new Apple Store Web3 policy, the app had to be modified, with some features temporarily removed. At the same time, the latest iOS version of the 1inch Wallet boasts full compatibility with iOS 16 and has many added flashy options.
All new features are designed to increase users’ ability to interact with other wallets and to improve the overall user experience:
HD Wallet support: The 1inch Wallet for iOS now supports HD Wallet, which solves the problem of privacy and record-keeping by creating public key pairs from a seed phrase. Users’ addresses will remain safe even when losing the private key backup from the hierarchical tree. Plus, it can generate different public addresses, and a user can always choose a new one for sending assets.
Ledger Nano X support: Another major improvement is the Ledger Nano X support — one of the leading cold wallets enabling users to store their crypto offline. As no funds can be sent through this type of wallet, it needs to be connected to the 1inch mobile app via Bluetooth to be able to interact with available crypto assets.
Payment request: This handy feature expands users’ options for receiving payments. To receive the exact amount of tokens, users only have to generate and share a QR code or payment link with their counterpart.
Live chat support: The email feedback form was replaced by live chat.
New wallet selector: Users get a quicker and easier-to-navigate way to access a preferred connected wallet to interact with.
Feature request: An opportunity to share ideas about desirable options to keep the 1inch Wallet fully top feature-packed.
Safari extension improvement: This utility strengthens the browser’s functionality and enables it to support almost any dApps. The updated Safari extension works smoothly and perfectly, enabling users to experience all the power of the mobile Safari with the 1inch Wallet.
New formats of token analytics display: Users can now view extended assets details providing all the information about tokens followed by a chart.
Quality improvements: A number of existing options have become more functional. Improvements include updates for UX iCloud Sync and WalletConnect, which also involves better network switching for the desktop browser.
TX decoder: Also, there is an upgraded, easy and straightforward confirmation screen for TX decoder — users can now receive information on transactions they are signing in a readable way.
The 1inch news section: This new block added to Moni Talks contains a lot of helpful information, including the 1inch Network’s announcements, significant events, product releases and tutorials.
🚨 Unfortunately, due to updated App Store requirements for applications, some functionalities are no longer available in the 1inch Wallet for iOS:
Fiat on-ramp providers have been removed from the app. There is no more opportunity to buy crypto for fiat within the iOS version of the 1inch Wallet.
DeFi Racer, the 1inch car race P2E-arcade, is not available anymore.
Browser pre-installed bookmarks are also inaccessible. Still, users can easily add their own bookmarks.
Swap and staking functionalities are now available only via the 1inch dApp — users can easily open app.1inch.io in the Web3 browser and enjoy the vast range of features it offers. Another way to interact with the dApp directly from the wallet is via the Safari extension. Also, there is an option to swap assets using the dApp on the desktop by connecting the 1inch Wallet through WalletConnect.
It is worth noting that while the swap and staking features may no longer be available in their previous form, this does not affect users’ ability to exchange and stake tokens. Meanwhile, the process of sending and receiving assets has become even more user-friendly.
1inch is always striving to introduce versatile new functionalities to the 1inch Wallet’s users. Stay tuned for more exciting updates!
