Is there a new equivalent for rcmobile:// deep linking on iOS?

Previously when we were using the RingCentral Phone app we could use the following url scheme to deep link and open the RingCentral Phone app.

rcmobile://call?

Since the switch to the new iOS app this url scheme no longer works. Is there an alternative deep linking scheme that would work for the new version?


I know the following is open as well but I haven't seen any update as to a resolution

I don't have an iPhone to test, but can you try these? They work on Android.

For calling
<a target="_blank" href="glip://r/dialer?number=+1xxxx">Dial +1xxxx</a></br>
<a target="_blank" href="glip://r/call?number=+1xxxx">Call +1xxxx</a></br>
For texting
<a target="_blank" href="glip://r/sms?type=new">SMS</a></br>
<a target="_blank" href="glip://r/sms?type=new&number=+1xxxx">SMS NUMBER</a></br>
<a target="_blank" href="glip://r/sms?type=new&number=+1xxxx&content=Hello from a Web page">SMS NUMBER & TEXT</a></br>
