APPLE fans have finally got their hands on the new iPhone 13 devices and there’s plenty of tricks for them to try out.
Here’s some of the best iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro tricks and tips that you shouldn’t miss.
Take incredible macro photos
A macro photo is an extreme close-up photo and the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max have cameras that are perfect for this kind of shot.
Make use of the ultra-wide camera lens and zoom in on small subject such as a leaf to see just how detailed a snapshot you can get.
You can download iOS updates over 5G
Old iPhone users will know that you can’t update your iPhone unless you’re connected to WiFi.
However, the 5G capabilities of the new iPhones means this can be a thing of the past.
To download an iOS update over 5G you’ll need to change your data settings.
Go to Settings and then click on the data section and then “Data Options”, “Data Mode” and then “Allow More Data on 5G”.
Alternatively, you can use the same steps to select “Low Data Mode” when you want to save battery.
Shoot a cinematic video
The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro series have a Cinematic Video feature.
It means you can film a subject and keep them in focus while the background blurs.
Try the feature if you want to create a professional looking video.
Use “space mode”
Apple has created a new version of its “space mode” to take better pictures of the night sky on iPhone 13 Pro.
All you need is a smartphone tripod, which can be cheaply bought on Amazon.
This steadies the iPhone, and allows it to capture longer-exposure shots.
This capability already existed in the iPhone, but it’s now better with iPhone 13 Pro.
Night Mode lets you take photos in the dark without using flash by having an AI automatically brighten your snaps for you.
Noise reduction, improved sensors and boosted computation for darker scenes also means astrophotography is significantly improved on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.
Drag content between apps
Use the new iPhone with iOS 15 to drag and drop content between apps.
Hold your finger down on an image, video or file using one hand.
Then use the other hand to open another app and you can drop your content in there.
For example, you could drop a video clip into an iMessage chat.
