iOS 7 的新功能仍然在一天一天被用家挖掘,這一次我們又會看到什麼呢?如果你是一名 Gmail 用家,應該會對我們即將報導的新功能感到興奮,因為現在 Gmail 裡面的 Google Contacts 與 iOS 設備的同步更為輕鬆了。蘋果向放出 iOS 7 Beta 2 後不久,有用家發現如今同步 Google Contacts 已經不再需要 CardDav。

所謂 CardDav,可以說是一種互聯網開放性標準,Google 於 2012 年 9 月宣佈支援 CardDav 之後,iOS 設備與 Gmail 通訊錄的同步就告別了原先的 Exchange 郵箱服務,變為一項只需要 1-2 分鐘的操作。不過,1-2 分鐘也許在蘋果看來還是太長了,現在的 iOS 7 移除了在同步 Google 通訊錄時對 CarDav 的需求,直接變成本地支持。

據瞭解,有用家反映這項新特性在 iOS 7 Beta 1 時已經出現。看起來蘋果不僅僅是把 iOS 7 的用家界面變得更為簡潔,同時也在對一些功能細節進行了簡化。別忘了如今只是 iOS 7 第二個測試版本,也許在等待正版版發佈前的這段時間裡,我們還會看到很多仍然在等待挖掘的驚喜。

According to Google’s current documentation, syncing Google contacts with an iOS device requires setting up an additional CardDAV account. However, as discovered by 9to5Mac reader Nikhil, iOS 7 Beta makes it easier than ever to sync contacts using the same on/off switches as Mail, Calendars, and Notes.

Back in September 2012, Google added the CardDAV protocol for syncing contacts on iOS, but the additional setup meant many users never knew about the feature or didn’t want to manage the additional account. It’s impossible to tell if this is a fluke, or if Apple and Google worked together to launch this integration. Google killed the Google Sync system back in their 2012 winter cleaning, which means iOS 7 must be using something other than the ActiveSync protocol. Perhaps it could be connecting to the CardDAV system behind the scenes.

Seeing that the documentation hasn’t been updated to reflect the simpler process, this is definitely a feature that should be treated as beta.
