How to use the Macro mode of the iPhone 13 Pro

The Macro mode, in addition to the Cinema mode and the photographic styles that we have already talked about, is another interesting and exclusive novelty of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Thanks to this mode we can now get much closer to what we want to photograph and get an image that was previously impossible on a phone.

We bring the phone closer and capture, nothing more

One of the features that perhaps has gone most unnoticed and at the same time promises to be the most interesting of all that have been presented in relation to the cameras of the new iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max is the macro photography mode. Thanks to the new lens for the ultra-wide angle camera and the A15 Bionic, iPhones can now focus on objects even two centimeters from the cameras . This allows you to capture details previously inaccessible to a phone.

“The new lens design, the first-time autofocus capability in the iPhone Ultra Wide, and advanced software also unlock something never before possible on the iPhone: macro photography. Users can capture sharp and stunning images in which the Objects appear larger than life, enlarging subjects with a minimum focusing distance of 2 centimeters. Macro also extends to video, including Slo-mo and Time-lapse. “

Taking a photo in frame mode is the easiest, in a few words we can say that we simply open the camera app, zoom in and shoot the photo . Keep in mind, however, that we can only get closer to a maximum of two centimeters, when doing so we will see a blur on the screen that marks the activation of the macro mode.

Currently, when activating the macro mode, the iPhone automatically switches to the ultra-wide angle lens . Since we are very close to an object, changing from one lens to another can make us lose the frame slightly, so, in a future update, Apple will allow us to prevent this automatic change.


How to use the photographic styles in the new iPhone 13 to be more creative in our photos

It may seem trivial, but the macro mode is really impressive in its results and can be very useful in many circumstances. In the end, with this and other features, Apple seeks to offer us flexibility when it comes to viewing our environment through the iPhone. A flexibility that can result in really interesting photos.
