Download iOS 14.3 or iOS 12.5
In addition to iOS 14.3, iPadOS 14.3 is of course also available. Apple may release the operating system in two versions, but the basic updates are often the same – with a specific difference per platform here and there. When you download iOS 14.3 to update your iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max, you can save photos as ProRAW. Support for this format was announced in October alongside the new iPhones , so it is now available.
After updating, you still have to activate the function within the settings of the camera application. Apple warns that if you choose that option, chances are that the files will be a lot larger than you are used to now. A single photo can easily take up 25 MB of storage space. For some users it is worth it, as you simply have more control over the final quality of the photo. You can adjust a lot afterwards in photo editing software, such as color, details and the dynamic range. In addition, the camera app allows you to record at 25 frames per second and owners of an iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X can finally mirror the front camera.
It is also possible to set Ecosia as the default search engine and it is easier to adjust icons. Apple Music users can look forward to animated artwork, while Apple TV + makes it easier to find shows that suit you. There is also now support for the AirPods Max and App Store pages show more information about privacy.

iOS 12.5 for older iPhones
