there are two HDR icons within the SDK. As labeled, one is for the iPhone 4′s Retina Display, while the other is for an iPhone without a Retina Display. The iPhone 3GS is the only iPhone that is physically (hardware capabilities) able to capture HDR shots so we figure that non-Retina icon is for the 3GS not the original or 3G model.
Apple has a very simple labeling process which places an “@2x” on image titles for the Retina Display and places nothing of that sort next to “iphone ” on non-retina iPhones.
Also, by just looking at the image’s sharpness, you can tell one is for a much higher resolution screen, in this case the iPhone 4′s Retina Display.
However, it is not clear whether these new icons were introduced in the latest beta version of
or it has been there since iOS 4.1. If it was there since iOS 4.1 then it is possible that Apple decided to drop the HDR feature from older
users to take HDR photos.
feature for older iPhone models but based on feedback from our readers it doesn’t work.
It will be interesting to see Apple will officially enable the feature for iPhone 3GS users in future iOS software updates.
