Iphone tips

Watch Videos in Picture-in-Picture Mode

Take advantage of that big screen of your iPhone 13 Pro Max by watching videos in Picture-in-Picture mode. Swipe up while watching a video in full-screen mode, and you should see the video show up in a floating PiP pane automatically. The functionality works on apps such as Apple TV, Hulu, YouTube, and Netflix.

Get the MagSafe Wallet Case with Find My Support

If you are someone who tends to lose or misplace their iPhone frequently, get the new MagSafe Wallet case from Apple. Alongside the iPhone 13, Apple launched an updated MagSafe Wallet case with Find My functionality built in. This means you’ll be able to track the case using the Find My app on your iPhone and other Apple devices. The case can come in handy if you are unable to track your iPhone directly. You can instead try to locate your wallet case.

Shoot in Apple ProRAW

Want to get the most out of your iPhone 13 Pro’s camera? Then you can shoot photos in ProRAW format. This is Apple’s take on the RAW/DNG format, and it will offer you greater flexibility while editing photos in post. This feature is exclusively available on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Quick Take Videos

Want to shoot a quick portrait video for Instagram or for sharing it with your friends? Instead of fumbling around in the Camera app to try and switch to Video mode, simply tap and hold the Shutter icon to start recording video with Quick Take on your iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro. Swipe your finger to the right if you want to switch to video recording completely.

AirPlay 4K HDR Content

If you have a second-gen Apple TV or an AirPlay 2-enabled smart TV, you can AirPlay 4K HDR content using your iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro. Once your Mac gets the macOS Monterey support, you’ll also be able to AirPlay videos to it.

Shoot Cinematic Videos

Apart from Dolby Vision, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro series can also record Cinematic videos. Cinematic videos have a bokeh-like effect in which the subject is in focus and the background is blurred. If you want to take your videos to the next level, you should definitely try recording Cinematic Videos on your iPhone 13.

Get a deal on iPhone Photography education

Yes, that’s right – just as paying for lessons to improve at regular camera photography is highly recommend, so too is spending a little to learn iPhone photography! The iPhone camera seems like a simple device at first, but most people are really only scratching the surface of its capabilities. In the right hands, the photos taken with a modern smartphone are almost indistinguishable from those taken from a bulky DSLR camera 3x the price. Just as there are techniques to photography with a DSLR, there are numerous important skills to learn when photographing with an iphone. I highly recommend you check out the iPhone Photo Academy – it’s a video course packed full of amazing tips and tutorials on getting much better photos with your iPhone. (UPDATE: There’s now also iPhone Landscape Mastery – new for 2021).

Safari Extensions

Similar to the macOS Safari browser, users can now use the same extensions for the Safari on iPhone as well. Previously, it was limited to ad-blockers only. iOS 15 open the doors for developers to create mobile-friendly extensions for the Safari browser. The collection is slim for now. But we can expect to see more developers creating Safari browser extensions in the future.

Add Wallpaper Background in Safari Browser

This was already possible in Safari on macOS Big Sur. iOS 15 carries the same wallpaper customization trick to the iPhone as well. Open Safari on the iPhone and scroll down to the bottom. Select Edit, and you can pick a relevant wallpaper from the Background Image menu. One can also go ahead and add wallpaper from the gallery on the iPhone.

Add Apple Music to Photos Memories

The default Photos app carries a Memories feature that combines your recent photos and creates a video out of it using animations and other cool tricks. In iOS 15, you can now set any music clip from the Apple Music app and make your memories even more beautiful. Memories will change the slideshow look and feel based on the song selection with custom filters and animations.
