What’s New in iQ 3.0: 

New Home Screen Experience 
  • The black bar launcher that was at the bottom of the screen has been replaced with a full-screen experience. Tapping on the iQ launcher button will bring users to this new home screen. 
Customizable Wallpapers 
  • Set a wallpaper from one of the new selection of presets, or add your own custom wallpaper from a USB drive. 
Customize Recent and Favorite Apps 
  • Users are now able to move between apps and recent content quickly and easily from the home screen. Whenever a user moves between a web browser or the whiteboard for example, that activity will be shown in the recent section on the home screen. 
  • You can easily pin a Recent tile to the Favorites section, and just as easily remove it. 
  • You can also reorder your Favorites. 
Files Library 
  • A new central location for all whiteboard, Player and Ink annotated content from the web browser or screen share 
Apps Library with Search

Multi-Device Screen Share and Media Streaming  
  • Users will now be able to share up to two (2) AirPlay or Google Cast devices at the same time. Both devices will be able to share as live sessions in the screen sharing lobby. 
  • For iOS devices, we’ve added support for media streaming, giving users the ability to control media like YouTube video from the SMART Board display, as well as the ability to stop/disconnect directly from the iQ display. This is currently only supported on AM40 and AM50 appliances.
