    Just wait a bit longer or use the mentioned workaround.

    Both photos are in complete different levels of colors. Please ensure the same exposure conditions.
    Skin tones, grass, trees and sky colors are all shifted. Color temp is not the same. Brightness is not the same.

    I am glad to see that the update is becoming more broadly available and that the new recipients are exploring the XPan feature in interesting ways. As the images increase, I am coming to believe more and more that this format is ideal for high-contrast B&W photography. Obtaining successful color images is more challenging, but can be done. There are occasional situations in which a vertical panorama can be interesting, but those who live where there are no high buildings, no tall animals, and no open forests may have trouble finding a use for that format.

    Here's an experimental vertical XPan image of a paper-bark tree (Melaleuca leucadendra) in direct late afternoon sun. Whether this is a good photo or not in artistic terms, it is still an easy image to capture in the XPan mode. But even without the XPan option, one could get the same image by using Pro mode in black and white in full resolution (that is, with unbinned pixels), and then cropping it to this format. So users of 7 and 8 series phones can create similar images with the phones they have now.
