Apple also announced the launch of a new photo library that will sync original resolution photos across all devices
Apple announced Thursday that the camera roll feature, which was removed with the launch of iOS 8, will return with the launch of iOS 8.1, to be released Monday.
The updated operating system will bring back the “beloved” feature as well as debut a beta version of the iCloud photo library, said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering, at an event at Apple’s Cupertino, California headquarters. The new library will enable photos taken and edited on one device, like an iPhone, to be “instantly reflected on all devices,” like an iPad. The library will also share photos across devices in their original format and resolution.
