Videos tips

Record Macro Videos

Yep, you are not just limited to macro photos. You can also record macro videos on your iPhone 13 Pro series, including slow-motion and time-lapse videos.

Shoot Macro Photos

If you have the iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max, you can use the ultra-wide camera to take macro photos as well. Simply get up close to a subject and the camera will automatically switch to macro mode.

Track Your iPhone Even When Switched Off

Thanks to an improvement from Apple in iOS 15, you’ll be able to track your iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro even when it is powered off. This will ensure that you can track your iPhone even when it is stolen or it has run out of battery.

Change Default Browser

You no longer need to have Safari as the default browser on your iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro. Instead, you can set up any other supported third-party web browser like Chrome or Firefox as the default one on your new iPhone. To do that, dive into the Settings app on your iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro and select the app that you want to make the default. Then, tap Default Browser App and specify the app as the default.

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.
