    On mine, it "did it by itself".

    The official changelog for Verizon isn't out yet (at least as far as I can tell), but a few things that were added or changed:

    1. Apps to SD - allows certain apps to be moved to the SD card
    2. Updated firmware for the stock camera app (but don't know the impact)
    3. Locked bootloader that prevents rooting

    Really? Because of the color of my wallpaper, the transparent status bar was a subtle but clear change. You could try changing your wallpaper temporarily if you wish to make the change easier to see.

    It looks like we have built-in filters now, unless I'm forgetting that arrow on the side of the screen.

    No, no. He's referring to the stock camera app. If you swipe the ">" it does open up some filters that can be set prior to taking the picture.
