Affinity Photo Customer Beta (

Recommended Posts

  • Staff


Status: Beta

Purpose: Features, improvements and fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Photo

App Store: Not submitted

Download link: Download



We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the first build of Affinity Photo 1.10.0 for iOS.

If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.

This beta is an incremental update to the 1.9.2 version recently released to all customers (although it still installs parallel to the released version, as described above). We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.

Finally, cant wait to test it tonight. One Question, will Affinity support someday a second display with native resolution? Like a preview window, since we got not real Multi Monitor support on iPadOS15. (Or does it work already, and I might have missed it?)
