Keycard can now be used on iOS devices for hardware enforced security to your keys and accounts! Status v1.12 also introduces a host of new features that make Status more enjoyable including some key updates to the messaging experience.
iOS users can now use Keycard! Keycard is a cold storage hardware wallet designed to keep your private keys entirely offline for greater security over your funds. Now you can add an extra layer of security to your assets, transactions, and accounts whether you are using Android or iOS.
The iOS integration includes all the same benefits as Android and can be used with iPhone 8 and above.

Status v1.12 includes the start of a larger effort to add seamless crypto onramps into the product. Now, you will be provided with a list of onramps including Moonpay, Wyre, Transak, Ramp, and LocalCryptos directly from the wallet tab.
Each of these options will allow you to purchase crypto all from within Status.
Phase 2 of this feature will include deeper integrations with select providers for even more streamlined crypto purchases. Stay tuned!
Bringing Status even closer to feature parity with some of the mainstream web2 chat giants, v1.12 now includes “delivered” message confirmations in 1:1 private messages. Just like other messengers:
Also, local notifications have been implemented for public chats that you have joined on Android. This is in addition to notifications for private messages and transactions :)
Finally, messaging just got a bit more colorful with the addition of link previews for both the Status blog (our.status.im) and Medium.
Status is also now available on F-Droid
