🎉 Bear 1.7 is out!! 🎉 blog.bear.app/2019/09/bear-1-7

*Please note you will NEED to update ALL your devices to 1.7 before encrypting a note*

1.7 includes the following exciting goodies:
* Individual Note Encryption
* Bear Lock
* Emoji Autocomplete
* Live Note Links
* and even more!


🚨 Apple has released public betas of iOS 13, iPadOS, and macOS 10.15 Catalina (no public beta for Watch).

We have not tested Bear against these versions yet. If you try a beta, please have backups and a downgrade plan ready.

If we ever release updates to help with beta issues, we generally wait until further into the process. By nature, betas are bumpy and significant code and features can change.

In general, we don’t recommend trying the betas unless you have a clear need, like for work.

In honor of , we’re posting last week’s newsletter for y’all to read!
