The camera app has been simplified and now offers easier ways to zoom in and start recording videos, as well as a watermarking option, revamped Single Take, and support for zoom in the Food mode. The built-in image and video editors have been enhanced, allowing users to easily edit GIFs, draw perfect shapes on photos, create stickers from any image, and add more stickers to pictures and videos.
