Cinematic Mode

Let’s start with the Cinematic Mode. To help filmmakers and enthusiasts take their videos to the next level, Apple has introduced a new feature called Cinematic Mode. It lets users shoot high-quality footage in the palm of their hand. Through AI, the system can automatically detect which object to focus on in a shot. It will also identify subjects of importance and focus on them when they enter the frame.

The new device’s camera is smarter than the previous generation, so it can identify what you’re shooting and automatically adjust the focus. This means that you don’t have to fiddle with the settings yourself. You’ll be able to shoot videos or take still photos with a depth effect that makes your pictures pop off the screen.

The Cinematic mode on the iPhone 13 allows users to create dramatic video moments, like those seen in movies.
