Learn how to use the Portrait, Panorama, Slow Motion, and other camera modes on your device.
Choosing the right mode for shooting
The various camera modes available directly on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch will help you achieve the perfect result when taking photos and videos. To switch between modes, swipe left or right. The following modes are available: “Photo”, “Video”, “Time Lapse”, “Slow Motion”, “Square”, “Portrait” and “Panorama”.
Before you begin, make sure you have the latest version of iOS installed.
“Photo” is the standard mode that is selected when the “Camera” program is opened. It is used to take ordinary photos and Live Photos that come to life when touched.
The camera automatically adjusts image focus and adjusts exposure for the selected subject. Thus, the photos from the very beginning are well lit.
You can change the focus and exposure of the camera for a selected portion of the frame. Before taking a picture, tap the area on the screen whose settings you want to configure. Then, if you want to keep the focus and exposure at the same point, press and hold on the screen until “Exposure / focus lock” appears.

To start burst shooting, press and hold the shutter button, and release it to complete.
If you have an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, you can use the QuickTake feature to easily shoot video in photo mode.
Portrait mode, available on iPhone 7 Plus and later, uses a dual camera system to create a depth of field effect. Thus, you get a clear subject with a blurry background. Owners of iPhone X or later can also take selfies in Portrait mode with the front panel TrueDepth camera.
Open the Camera program and select the Portrait mode. If the program advises you to move further from the subject, do it. When the Depth Effect box turns yellow, take a picture.
Photos taken in Portrait mode on iPhone 8 Plus and later can now be made even more mesmerizing thanks to studio-quality lighting effects. After shooting, click “Edit” and select one of the effects: “Studio Light”, “Contour Light”, “Stage Light”, “Stage Light. Mono” or “Light Key. B / W”
On iPhone XR, the “Stage Light”, “Stage Light. Mono”, and “Light Tone. B / W” modes are not supported on the rear camera.
In the “Square” mode, the frame on the camera screen becomes square. This is a photo format optimized for most social networking programs. Thus, the photograph taken can be immediately published on your favorite social network.
On iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, click the arrow () to view other options, including Square mode.
