A new firmware version has been released for the DJI Mini 3 Pro drone. Will it solve the QuickTransfer issue that many users are facing?

QuickTransfer is a feature that allows DJI drone users to quickly transfer photos and videos in the Fly app to their mobile device via Wi-Fi. With QuickTransfer, you can access the album of the Mini 3 Pro in the DJI Fly app on the mobile device without connecting to the remote controller, and download photos and videos at up to 30 MB/s.

However, many Mini 3 Pro users have been complaining that the feature is not working on their iOS and Android devices. Temporary workarounds have included switching off the cellular data before opening the DJI Fly app, but users are naturally frustrated with the bug.

This is why DJI has quickly rolled out a new firmware update, v01.00.0150, for the Mini 3 Pro. Though the release notes do not directly address any known issues with QuickTransfer, they do say that the update would “optimize QuickTransfer to work in a low-power state” and also “prolong the usage time for QuickTransfer.”

Interestingly, the new firmware automatically turns off the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to ensure the quality of the image transmission signal in-flight. So, do remember to enable both of these along with location services while using QuickTransfer.

Also, in addition to the aircraft, you will need to update the DJI RC to v01.00.0300 and the DJI Fly app to v1.6.6 to see the changes that the new firmware is offering. DJI RC-N1 remote controller, meanwhile, does not require any update.
