Microsoft has released Lync 2013 Mobile Updates for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone

Microsoft released updates for the various Lync 2013 mobile clients. The Apple client update addresses the 7.1 iOS bug, Android is just Android, and the Windows Phone client gets a tweak to the interface. Unfortunately all that seems to be updated is the interface as the push notification system is still a requirement for WP only. This push experience delivers a poor IM experience when multi-tasking but again, it is limited to the WP client.

On the Windows Phone 8.1 (currently preview) it has been noted by myself and other MVPs that the contact list does not fully populate after initial login. I personally use UCS, others do not, and experience the same result. The fix?? Simply log out of the app and back in and everything is happy.

Apple iOS update 7.1 breaks Lync 2013 Voice/Video

It has been discovered that the latest Apple iOS upgrade 7.1 for iPhone, iTouch, and iPad devices breaks current Lync 2013 functionality. Specifically, it has been found that the update creates interoperability issues which causes voice and video to fail when using these devices. Microsoft is aware of the issue as seen in KB2955745 but there is currently no fix or workaround available.

The current solution? Hold off upgrading your Apple devices until a fix is found or you may be without Lync Audio/Video (I say might as Apple iPad Air and iPad Mini do not appear to exhibit the issue).

An update has been released and availabile in the iTunes store and may be foundhere. This update addresses the Apple flaw.
