Hi. I have a question regarding Apple devices and DJI software. Apple IOS 14 is going to be available shortly (supposedly today) and I was wondering if there has ever been a case where a new Apple IOS update presented problems with compatibility with the DJI software needed to fly a drone? If so I will wait to update my Ipad Mini 5 to IOS version 14 until I'm confident that the DJI Fly app is compatible with it. Thanks for any input on this.

That is the correct position.

The trouble with the "correct position" is who is going to be the guinea pig?
Maybe DJI could issue some type of declaration that DJI Fly version 1.1.9 is compatible with the Apple IOS version 14?

I can tell you that DJI Fly will work perfectly fine with iOS 14.

And we're supposed to just believe a random statement by a forum member without any verifying proof???  Please at least give some facts or reference material to back up your claim.

Doesn't matter if you believe me or not but here are some screens from my phone. I've been running ios 14 since developer beta's started. And I'm not just a random forum member. Or at least I don't feel like it. Been around here for a little while. This is the profile screen from the DJI Fly app on my iPhone XR and the general settings screen where you can see that I indeed have iOS 14 installed.

Thanks...it might  have helped in your original post to say you'd been operating for a while on the IOS 14 beta version.

Didn't think it necessary but for the backstory, that's what I do for the company that I work for. They use a lot of apple devices so my job is to develop their apps to maintain compatibility for the next iterations of upgrades amongst other things. The benefit is that I get to have a device that will constantly have a developer beta on a device that I have DJI Fly installed on so if there are issues, I can let someone know. I know, it sounds a little selfish, and I guess in a way it is, but the way I see it, I'm looking out for more than just myself, but a community of nice folks that depend on these devices to work in order to fly whether its for work or pleasure.

Well, I may become one of the auto updaters, then....thanks for your work and sharing your expertise.

That thing about auto updating, that's a personal preference really. The point I was trying to make with it was the other poster said that iPhone wouldn't download updates on its own when ever since iOS 13, auto update was on by default. You have to manually turn it off if you wanted control over what updates and what doesn't so you should know and understand that if you turn that off, you'd have to manually update. I manually update myself.

There are two types of beta OS's for Apple. There is a developers beta and a public beta. Then there is the public release, which is what is expected to release today. Apple said yesterday in their live stream event that the public release of iOS, iPad OS, TV OS 14 and WatchOS 7 would come today. I wouldn't imagine that it wouldn't if it hasn't already in some areas. My personal iPhone, iPad air and apple watch has already updated to their respective upgraded OS's.

You are right to be concerned! Here’s an article running on the BBC

Old news; they had the developer beta to work with, but some elected to leave things until late. There always was indications it will be released today going by previous years.

Anyway, so far DJI Go 4 seems to be working fine on iOS 14 release version.

PHL is correct. Although the road to iOS 14 was shorter than normal. There were 7 developer betas and as many public betas as well. Plenty to work with for developers that didn’t procrastinate or was overwhelmed with a huge amount of apps to bring into compliance.

I am on iOS 14 on my iPhone 11 Pro Max and the DJI Go 4 app doesn’t recognise my Mavic Pro when it is plugged in, another iPhone on iOS 13 worked fine. Any ideas how to sort it?

Hey, I've a problem with my Mavir Air 2 camera these last days and I don't know if its related with iOS14 or a problem with my hardware. The overall camera quality is worst than before, the color and everything.
Always when I put in HDR Video mode, I've that problem (left side, and often in the center too), specially when I'm recording something with less light.
Someone have any idea about it? Or the same problem?

I have been running the IOS 14 beta since it came out with my Mavic Air 2 and have experienced no issue with exception of problems with DJI Fly app updates.  The Fly app was buggy and quickly corrected last week with an update.  The buggy app coincided with the release of the Mini 2 and the app update.  Other than that IOS 14 is rock solid.
