    Photos App Filters Outdated?

    I don’t remember the last time the filters in the Photos app got a refresh, but I feel like they’re due for one. I think Apple could really blow us all away with some professional options instead of what feels like 2010 Instagram looks.

    Will Apple Revamp Photos Filters for iOS 14?

    I don’t know about everyone else, but while the stock filters in Apple Photos aren’t the worst in the world, they’re definitely not the best, and there’s no reason why Apple shouldn't have the best. I used the Photos plugin aspect of the Filmborn app for a while. I was able to easily edit...

And you can't move the white time slider if it's remotely close to the yellow slider, it just picks up whichever end of the yellow bar is nearest - which wouldn't be...

    All Devices Is Editing In Apple Photos Much Better In iOS 13?

    I currently edit my mobile photos in Lightroom for iOS. I would consider switching to editing in Apple's Photos app, especially now that iOS 13 introduces white balance and tint adjustments (what took so long?).
