Apple released iOS 14.3 this week, bringing a long list of new features and bug fixes to the iPhone. Not only this, but the company delivered iOS 12.5 for older devices. The iOS 12.5 update adds Exposure Notifications to older devices that don't support iOS 14. So what's in the iOS 14.3 update?
Apple ProRAW image format lets photographers combine RAW image capture with Apple's computational photography features.
This means photos can be taken with Deep Fusion or Smart HDR and still be manipulated after capture in RAW format. To make this possible, Apple has created a completely new process that uses the main processor, GPU, ISP, and Neural Engine.
Getting the perfect selfie on iPhone starts with engaging the front camera. Unlike taking a photo with the back camera, the viewfinder simulates looking in the mirror. This means text and logos appear backwards. Move your hand to the right, and it moves to the right on the screen. Once the image is captured, it's stored in the Photos app under Recents.
Instagram continues to add features, simplifying the management of content on its platform. For anyone interested in deleting a large number of comments or spam on a post, the photo sharing app has added a bulk delete option. iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users can easily delete multiple comments from a post with a few taps. Once deleted, the comments are gone forever.
iOS inexplicably has several camera filters that aren't found in either the Camera or Photos app, but rather in the Messages app. Yes, there are some cool filters that you can only access when you pull up your camera from within Messages. In addition to the normal filters you have when taking a photo with the camera app or adding filters later on while editing in the Photos app, you will find comic book, ink, watercolor, camcorder and aged film filters in the Messages app.
