Install for Improvements to Camera & Photos

The iPadOS 14.3 update brought a number of improvements that should be of interest to those who love to shoot and edit photos.

With iPadOS 14.4 or iPadOS 14.3 on board, Apple ProRAW photos can be edited in the Photos app. You also have the option to record video at 25 fps and you can also mirror the front facing camera for still photos on iPad Pro (1st and 2nd Gen), iPad (5th Gen and later), iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2.

If you skipped iPadOS 14.3, iPadOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.1, your iPadOS 14.4 update includes another new feature. 

iPadOS 14.1 brought support for 10-bit HDR video playback and editing in the Photos application. This is particularly useful if you love editing videos on your iPad.

Unfortunately, the feature is limited to newer iPad models. You will only get this feature if you own an iPad Pro 12.9‑inch (2nd generation) and later, iPad Pro 11‑inch, iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Air (3rd generation) and later, or iPad mini (5th generation).

That means devices like the iPad mini 4 don't get access to this feature.

If you own Apple's new iPad Air, the iPad Air 4, and you skipped iPadOS 14.3 and iPadOS 14.2, you might want to install iPadOS 14.4 right now. You get some new features for the camera. 

iPadOS 14.2 brought Scene Detection to the Camera. The feature uses intelligent image recognition to identify objects within a scene and automatically improves the photo.

The update also brought Auto FPS in Camera. This feature automatically reduces the frame rate when recording video to improve low light capture and to optimize file size on ‌iPad Air‌.

If you plan to shoot photos and videos on your new iPad, you'll want to install the latest firmware.
