Hi DJI,

With the release of the new 3rd-generation iPad Pro's a few months ago, I am wondering when DJI will get around to updating GO 4 to take advantage of the new Liquid Retina displays / sizes of these new iPad's, as I find GO 4 still letterboxes on these models, and thus wastes the newly found screen real estate.

Cheers

I haven't personally tried the new iPads, but they should all be able to run DJI GO since all of the specs are equal or better to older iPads that are able to run DJI GO.

Yes they run them just fine, just that the new iPad's have larger edge-to-edge screens, and the GO 4 app doesn't fill the full screen, so the app is letterboxed.

so it's been just over 7 months since the iPad Pro 3rd gen release....any response from DJI on this? Go4 is both my most used app and also the only app on my iPad that is letterboxed and not updated to fill the screen, not sure what's taking so long compared to previous screen size updates that were significantly quicker...

I am using the 11 inch iPad Pro, unfortunately the App does not support the screen size. Since there seems to be some kind of coop between DJI and Apple, when may we expect this issue to be fixed?

I recall Apple now making it mandatory as of a certain date (exact date escapes me), from then on all updates for published apps must support the new devices, including their screen assets / resolutions, or risk not having updates published.

Wondering if Apple will finally poke DJI and say "Hey, you haven't done this yet, get your act together or we'll pull the app down"...

That would get DJI's attention VERY quickly!

Ok were going on 14 months, its almost 2020...this is an absurdly long time for DJI to drag their heels on this

DJI go4 continues to be the only app that letterboxes and wastes space on my iPad, super frustrating

anybody at DJI care to chime in with an update?

It's the same on my iPad 11 Pro and I think a lot of DJI users bought a Pro 11 model for the comfortable screen size.

And yes - DJI GO4 is the only app wasting precious screen space on my iPad for no apparent reason.. I wonder how Autel's app looks on the iPad Pro 11..

It's 2020 and they're still selling the Mavic 2 models as a top drones, yet the app does not recieve the support it should. Soon Apple will disable updates of apps not resizing content correctly so really hoping we don't get a new app for the Mavic 3 series drones - then the DJI GO 4 app's development is over and we never get a proper fix for this.

Maybe there's a special reason they're not fixing this issue but to DJI I say: please listen to consumers, thanks!

Apple wont pull any pre-existing apps down,  there are massive amounts  of legacy apps that dont follow current guidelines still up in the App Store, it only applies to new apps and existing app updates

Unfortunately I just read that the old date (April 30th) was pushed back to June 30th due to COVID. So starting in July if DJI wants to update Go4 it will have to support the 11” Pro among other requirements

It’s now been 18 months, and Apple just released even more new iPads that have the same full screen ratio still unsupported by DJI Go4....I cant think of any other release that took DJI over 1.5 years to properly support. Please update your professional app to support professional products DJI, this is beyond frustrating for the caliber of product the Inspire series is

I’ve said it before but any insight from someone at DJI would be much appreciated

Any Update on this? it is really very dissapointing. None of your apps are compatible with the newer ipad Pros which were released in 2018!!! Now the 2020 series is here and still nothing. This was for me the last Dji drone. Why should i support a company which needs almost 1,5 years to update an app!

Thanks for bumping this thread, this needs more visibility as its very disappointing this still hasn’t been fixed. Also theres been a big lack of DJI staff responding here........wish they would chime in with any sort of info

What’s truly frustrating is an update for DJI Go 4 came out 3 days ago, where before COVID-19 it would be after Apple’s April 30th deadline of not being able to submit an app update without supporting the iPad Pro screen res among other requirements, but now that got pushed back to July 30th so DJI could slip an update through while continuing to ignore the iPads

Whatever bugs that update fixed it didn’t fix the screen res or the lack of a Rec709 LUT viewer for shooting in D-Log on the i2, which is so far beyond ridiculous for a professional product of its caliber. Get your s*** together DJI, I truly want to love you guys but you make it so hard with these repeated slaps in the face

I too am really interested to get an answer about DJI GO 4 - will it update to iOS 13 SDK so iPad Pro 11 & 12.9 users can finally use the entire screen? In 2020..

DJI please respond - is this the end of support and future updates for iOS users regarding DJI GO 4?
Well in about three weeks we shall see I guess.. sadly it seems to me they're more focused on DJI Fly..
