    On my iPad2, the Camera app doesn't have any kind of pano functionality.

    Do later iPad models have this? Have you tested the new functionality if they do?

    Can't confirm in any way, but I would guess that they're not giving the iPad 2 that feature.

    Although the chips in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4s (which can take panoramas) are similar, there have been cases where they don't get the same feature set with new iOS releases. For example, FaceTime over cellular is supported on the 4s, but not the iPad 2 cellular models.

    That is, as I believe, the case.

    The iPad 2 will be limited (as will the 4S) in terms of features upon public release.

    I'd REALLY like to know whether it works on the rMini and if it does, does it use dynamic exposure correction, as does the iPhone 5s. If it does, I'll upgrade my rMini in a heartbeat, even by losing the jailbreak. (Dynamic exposure-corrected sweep pano, as is implemented in the 5s, rules.)

    Again, can't confirm, but my guess is that the rMini will certainly support panorama, but may not support dynamic exposure correction, due to the iPad's inferior camera module, in comparison to the iPhone.

    In saying that, the exposure correction might be accomplished through software, rather than hardware (I don't know), in which case it should be able to, since the rMini and the 5s share the same chip (the A7).

    Works great on my Air so I'm guessing that the rMini will support it because they pretty much have the same hardware.

    Thanks! That's great news! Now I'm off to upgrade too (goodbye JB...).

    I've lost my jailbreak to on my iPad in favor for iOS 8.

    No pano on the iPad3 either. (Upgraded one of my iPad3's to iOS8 too.)
