The Benefits of Using a Newer iPad

Since the iPad is such a critical part of the Matterport capture process, we are often asked “Which iPad should I use?” The easiest answer is just to use the best iPad you have available. This means the newest model with the most amount of storage. Newer iPad hardware also “future proofs” you for Capture app functionality that we will offer in the future.

If you’re a holdout using a very old iPad, read this Community post to learn about the benefits of upgrading to a newer model.


Update Your Firmware To Improve Performance

A new firmware update is available to download via the Capture app. This update includes general performance improvements and fixes a Wi-FI issue that could occur in specific countries (Indonesia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Sri Lanka, Armenia, and Bahrain).
