【For iOS users】

■Regarding Synchronizing date and time function of RICOH GR III
We have found a bug on Image Sync iOS ver.2.0.5 about Synchronizing date and time. When conducting synchronizing date and time at App’s settings, the time is recorded as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) instead of the device’s time. We are currently working on revised version.

■Points to be noted on Image Sync iOS ver. 2.0.5 when connecting RICOH GR III which has already been paired by Bluetooth.

  • ・Regarding iOS device which has never connected with RICOH GR III through Wireless LAN, Wireless LAN connection cannot be performed automatically even though you tap “Connect with Paired RICOH GR III.” If you have conducted “Connection Method (iOS device & Wireless LAN)” in advance even once, Wireless LAN connects automatically thereafter.
  • ・In case iOS device’s Wi-Fi is connected to Wi-Fi router or other access points, automatic Wireless LAN connection cannot be performed.
  • ・Normally, it takes 1 to 2 minutes to connect with Wireless LAN automatically.

In case you can never connect automatically through Wireless LAN, please kindly use “Connection Method (iOS device & Wireless LAN)”. New functions such as synchronizing date and time, location information sending, transfer reservation and remote capture function can be performed by Wireless LAN.

We will continue efforts to improve Image Sync for improving operability.
2019.08.08

We would like to announce that revised Image Sync ver. 2.0.1 will be released on Oct. 22nd. (Release timing would be changed because of passing timing of App examination) This revision will be greatly improved for transferring failures. However, we have noticed App forced termination in the below condition regardless of App version.
- Image Sync is terminated forcedly during transferring or just after completion of transfer when you transfer more than ten images at one time during loading thumbnail of in-camera images if your device saves more than 500 images.
In case you face the above situation, please kindly try the below method.
- Transfer less than 10 images at one time, or start transferring after completion of loading thumbnail images.
We will continue efforts to improve Image Sync and also resolve the above failures by future updates.

We will stop distributing iOS App temporarily because we require further time to fix bugs.

and will be able to distribute Image Sync App again within 7 – 10 days.
We deeply apologize for the inconvenience, and we sincerely appreciate your patience.
