For avid smartphone videographers, good news could be on the way – because that iPhone 13 will reportedly feature a new mode that will seriously improve its video shooting skills.
According to Everything Apple Pro on YouTube, which spreads rumors of details from leaker Max Weinbach, the iPhone 13 gets a new video portrait mode. This is apparently based on the portrait mode, which is already available for still photos on newer iPhones in Apple’s own camera app.
While many third-party iOS camera apps offer portrait videos, they are nowhere near as widespread as the standard app. Adding portrait video to the camera app in the next iPhone would be a big change for the average iPhone user and would make things easier for power users who are already used to this effect.
The introduction of portrait video this year wouldn’t be too surprising. For starters, iOS 15 Introduces a background blur option in FaceTime in portrait mode, similar to the existing features in Google Meet and Zoom. Hence, it stands to reason that Apple was able to transfer this software to its camera app with relatively little difficulty compared to reinstalling it.
We heard earlier that Apple is supposedly rolling out a new ultra wide angle camera lens to the iPhone 13 Pro models, one that will apparently introduce autofocus as well. Combined with the other big rumored change – bigger sensors – the iPhone 13 should easily take the place of the iPhone 12 Pro Max as the best among the best camera phones available now.
Although there are many similarities between the iPhone 12 and the upcoming iPhone, rumored new features like this point the way for Apple to innovate and maintain its position as a leading company without major changes to the iPhone’s external functions and hardware best cell phones.
It doesn’t take long to find out if the rumors are true. Since iPhones are usually introduced in September, there are probably only three months to the iPhone 13 (or iPhone 12sas it can be called) appears.
