The new Osmo Reflector for iPad (2021) is a specially designed piece of hardware that makes the iPad Pro 11-inch (Gen 1 - 3), iPad Pro 12.9-inch (Gen 3 - 5), iPad Air 4, iPad Air 5, and iPad Mini 6 compatible with Osmo. This new reflector will help accommodate the thinner bezels on these devices.
Note that it works with all Osmo-compatible iPads, not just the thin bezel models. If you have been using the standard iPad reflector with your iPad, you can also use the Osmo Reflector for iPad (2021), without any additional setup.
There are two modes available on the new reflector.
Thin Bezel Mode makes the reflector sit a little higher to work with cameras that are closer to the edge of the iPad. Use this mode if you are using an iPad Pro 11-inch (Gen 1 - 3), iPad Pro 12.9-inch (Gen 3 - 5), iPad Air 4, iPad Air 5, or iPad Mini 6.
Thick Bezel Mode sits on an iPad just like our standard reflector and works with iPads that have more space between the camera and the edge. Use this mode for any other Osmo-compatible iPad.
To use the new reflector, please follow these steps:
- Find a tool. A variety of items can help change modes. For most people, a fingernail will work fine. You can also try a paperclip or a credit card.
- Put the tool into the slot of the adjustment dial and gently push in on the dial until you feel it stop.
- While pressing in, turn the dial until you feel it stop.
- Release the tool from the dial allowing it to lock into place.
Turning the dial clockwise will put the reflector in Thin Bezel Mode.
Turning it counterclockwise will return it to Thick Bezel Mode.
The Reflector for iPad (2021) and the Reflector for Fire Tablets (2021) are not interchangeable. They can be differentiated by the dots on the back of the reflector.
