    After the newest update there is no button to turn on or off flash mode and regular camera setting. I'm not an ***** I've searched relentlessly. This is bush league from a company this big. Apple again blows my mind. After news update on my iPhone 5S in my camera there is the button to turn or turn off flash in upper left-hand corner. So I know it exists but just not on my iPad all of a sudden. Yeah Allis people spending all this money on iPads and iPhones and you only get partial features after each update is getting old. It's always when they're trying to invent or improve something you lose something on the bottom end. This time the simple feature of a flash on the camera. It's been weeks since they can release the newest 8.1.1 update and still release no simple fix for simple flash. Maybe because a look at all their customers is just stupid idiots they won't notice let's unacceptable.

    There's no flash on any iPad!!! So no need to have a button to turn the flash off/on.

    Most over there would probably go along with it. Don't they give awards over there for hating on Apple?

    Yeah like that never happens with Android. I like the fact that most iDevices receive regular updates to the software. Whenever I've had an Android device it seems as if I was always waiting for an update that never came, and the only way to get the latest version of Android was to buy a new device ...

    Frankly- I'm utterly astounded! I just received this for Christmas and tried to take a photo at Nye party (how downright careless of me) and found I couldn't! Really? Seriously? 😬WHY would you include a camera then deliberately curtail its potential? Any sensible answers welcomed

    Welcome to iMore! Honestly, only Apple has the answer to your question. Apple has never put a flash on an iPad and I haven't read anything about them including a flash on future models.

    The camera on the iPad was designed primarily for use with Facetime. The intent was not for serious photography. If you want to take photos, just use your smartphone.
