Instagram continues to expand the Explore tab, giving users new ways to find interesting content. According to the Instagram blog, the latest update brings location and hashtag Stories to the section. The change is one of many that Instagram has rolled out over the past five years since the Explore tab first launched.
Apple continues to expand on its series of iPhone photography tutorials after launching the project earlier this month. Titled "How to Shoot on iPhone 7", the series features 40-second instructional videos highlighting the capabilities of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cameras.
The latest version of Google Photos brings Apple fans an incredibly useful new feature. Version 2.14 adds AirPlay compatibility, making it possible to view photos and videos on Apple devices. This update means that Google Photos for iOS now supports the Apple TV in addition to casting directly to Chromecast devices.
Adobe has updated Lightroom Mobile to version 2.7.0. The latest release adds a new feature described as "Authentic HDR" to Apple devices, and makes it possible to export original RAW images directly to the iOS camera roll. While the native Camera app includes its own HDR functionality, Adobe touts their raw HDR as a superior shooting mode.
Photos taken with the iPhone, or any digital camera for that matter, contain a variety of metadata including EXIF data (camera related data such as aperture, exposure, lens, etc.), GPS data and timestamps. This data can be accessed by anyone you share the photo with, so it clearly raises privacy concerns, e.g. you post a photo of your house that includes GPS coordinates of where your house is. Unfortunately there are currently no tools native to iOS that can remove or edit this metadata, so third party apps are required.
