We made some upgrades to the way Purple Ocean's iOS app handles incoming live calls. This change was required by Apple, and it affects how incoming calls are presented to advisors. The various scenarios are described below.

Device is unlocked:

If a call comes in when your device is unlocked, simply tap on "Accept." This will launch the relevant call screen inside the Purple Ocean app:

The incoming call type, duration, and client nickname will be scrolled across the top of this screen.

ImportantDO NOT use the "Remind Me" or "Decline" buttons. They appear in iOS by default, but Purple Ocean requires that all incoming calls from clients be answered.

Device is locked:

If a call arrives while your device is locked, you will see a screen like the one below. Swipe on the "Slide to answer" slider–this will launch the relevant video call / voice call / chat screen inside the Purple Ocean app:

After answering the call, the screen will appear as seen below, and you'll need to proceed from it to Purple Ocean's own call screen. Without doing so, your session will not start. You have 2 options to proceed:
  1. Tap the Purple Ocean button:

ImportantDO NOT tap on the red X to decline the call. Doing so will count against you, and may result in the suspension or revocation of your ability to offer live readings. 


      2. Tap the push notification about the incoming call as it rings.

Once you've tapped on the icon or push notification, you'll be prompted to unlock your screen in whichever locking method you've implemented on your device - Face ID, Touch ID, or Passcode. Shown below is the Face ID option. If you have a device with Touch ID, you'll need to scan your fingerprint and if you're only using a numeric passcode you'll be prompted to enter it. Once unlocked, your session will start! 


If the incoming call is a Tryout, this will be mentioned in the incoming call screen:
