OS VERSION: This goes back at least a few years
HARDWARE: Any officially supported device
UI LANGUAGE: Irrelevant
Regularly user after user wonder why they can’t update to the next Sailfish X release, or why they can’t install Android App Support, or use predictive text input, and often the answer is that the device is using a free license. As far as I can tell, there is no way for the user to see the license type in use, and what it does or does not provide.
The Jolla account page does list the devices and their identifiers, but not the license type.
Have a supported device using a free version of Sailfish X
Try to find the license type (free vs. paid) information of the device
Information of the license type of the device being available at least in one place, either on the device or on the account page.
No information is found.
These are the places where I would expect to find the information in (one or several):
- Jolla | Devices page
- Settings application
- New item “License”
- New field in “Device Information” (the [i] icon item, I have a Finnish locale)
- Store application
