X3 New Firmware Update: App Background Downloading and Quick Reader Support

Insta360 is excited to announce a new firmware update for Insta360 X3, the world's best-selling 360 action cam, designed to both streamline use and expand its compatibility. Capture every moment easier than ever before with enhanced usability and flexibility.

App Background Downloading: Multitasking Made Easy

To make your content creation process as smooth as possible, we're bringing the much-appreciated App Background Download feature from Ace Pro to Insta360 X3.

Now, you can use other apps on your mobile device and your files will continue to download in the background. This is a game-changer for those who juggle reviewing and editing their footage while staying connected or productive on their devices.

With your firmware updated, and the Insta360 app running the latest version, this feature is automatically enabled.

Quick Reader Now Supports iPhone 15 Series

We've expanded compatibility with support for the iPhone 15 series with our Quick Reader accessory. To take advantage of this update, users will need to follow a simple two-step process:

  1. On a non-iPhone15 device, update the Insta360 app to the latest version.
  2. Connect the Quick Reader to this non-iPhone 15 device, open the Insta360 app, and a popup will appear to update the Quick Reader.

In addition, your camera's firmware will need to be updated to ensure complete compatibility.

Once these steps are completed, users of the iPhone 15 series can enjoy seamless connectivity and faster data transfer speeds, making the sharing and editing process quicker than ever.
