iOS 7 will finally let iPad users take HDR photos

Apple seeded iOS 7 beta 2 yesterday to developers of iOS Developer program, which also brought support for the iPad and iPad mini.

So we’ve started to get information about the the new iOS 7 features for iPad users.

The redesigned Camera app in iOS 7 finally brings HDR photos feature to the iPad. There is a HDR toggle just above the shutter button. It turns blue when HDR is enabled as you can see below and is greyed out when it is disabled.

Apple had introduced the HDR photos feature in iOS 4.1 back in 2010, however it hasn’t been available on the iPad.

HDR photos are created using 3 photos taken in rapid succession: one normal, one under-exposed, and one over-exposed. The photos are then combined using some pretty sophisticated algorithms to create an enhanced composite photo.

We’re yet to get a confirmation if it is available on all iOS 7 compatible iPads (iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPad mini). We’ll update this post as soon as we’ve the details.
