REJOICE, iOS USERS: YOU CAN USE THE NEW SAMSUNG 360
CAMERA, TOO

I’ve been a big fan of the cute little Samsung Gear 360
camera since its first unveiling in the spring of 2016, and
always recommend it to people inquiring about the best
consumer-friendly 360 cameras out there. However, the BIG
caveat has always been the same: you can’t use the Gear 360 app
with an iOS device– that means no live view, no real-time
rendering, no simple social sharing. Now, with the release of
the

second-generation Samsung 360 camera
, the
story has shifted: if you have an iPhone 7, 7+, 6S, 6S+, SE
running iOS 10.0 or later you can use the Gear 360 app
(unfortunately, this is not a retrograde compatibility– it only
affects the new 2017 version). The cost is lower than the 2016
version with a pricetag of $229 and you can record in up to 4K
resolution. Also notable, if you’re planning on getting the
upcoming Galaxy S or S+,
