After releasing Nikon SnapBridge for Android this spring, the company's iOS app for their new connected technology is now ready and available for download. Compatible with the Nikon D500 and D3400 DSLR cameras and the Coolpix B500, A300 and W100 point-and-shoot cameras, SnapBridge utilizes always-on Bluetooth Low Energy technology to allow a constant connection between your camera and smart device.

As you capture photos with your compatible device, they are automatically transferred to your smartphone or tablet via BLE technology. Once in SnapBridge, you can quickly prepare your photos for sharing on social media. Select cameras such as the D500 can be remotely controlled via SnapBridge as well, featuring similar functions to Nikon's older mobile device application.

To use SnapBridge on iOS with your Nikon D500 or D3400, you need to update your firmware. You can download the newest D500 firmware here and D3400 firmware here. To download SnapBridge for iOS, visit this link.
