appeared Two new iPhone 13 Pro camera features that Apple promised in future software updates are in the latest developer beta of iOS 15.1.
Users can now record video using the Apple ProRes codec. There is a switch to turn off the automatic switching of the macro mode.
With this third beta release, users have gained access to switching tools, which may indicate that features may be available soon.
In current versions of iOS, iPhone 13 Pro automatically switches from the main camera to the ultra-wide camera when it detects that you are close to a subject, enabling close focus macro mode.
Some reviewers found the switch to be inconsistent, and the company said it was adding a setting to turn it off. It has now appeared in beta version. This option addresses one of reviewers’ biggest concerns about the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
However, some Reddit users have reported difficulty getting the same results with the Auto Macro setting turned off, even after manually switching to the ultrawide.
Since this is a developer beta, it’s possible that the setup has some bugs or it could work a little differently with the final version.
9To5Mac takes a look at how ProRes is used to shoot video in the new beta and reveals that the company is using 422 HQ of ProRes.
Apple releases iOS 15.1 beta 3 for developers
Like the macro feature, shooting in ProRes format suitable for color grading is limited to iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models. The 128GB phones record at 1080p at 30fps instead of 4K.
The company warns that a minute of 10-bit HDR ProRes takes roughly 1.7 GB for HD and 6 GB for 4K.
Although these features may appear in the official version 15.1. But this is not a sure thing. SharePlay was present in early versions of the iOS 15 beta before it was removed. This is despite the fact that it appeared again with the first beta version of iOS 15.1.
15.1 beta also includes support for adding a coronavirus vaccination card to Apple Wallet. So this could be a very large version.
With the latest set of updates and beta versions, the company is checking the list of features that have been announced. But it has not yet been released.
