New “Macro app” brings iPhone 13 Pro’s Macro Photography feature to older iPhones

A new “Macro app” by Camera+ brings the Macro photography features exclusively available on the iPhone 13 Pro models to older iPhone models compatible with iOS 15. The new Macro app will allow users to take beautiful close-up shots of objects in the surroundings like flowers, insects, texture, or aesthetic shots of eyes, hair, and much more.

Powered by A15 Bionic chip, the new camera system of iPhone 13 Pro models features improved Wide, Ultra-wide, and telephoto lens which enabled the company to offer Macro photography features. But, the new Macro app by Camera+ removes the hardware required to enjoy the new feature. 

Users can capture sharp, stunning images where objects appear larger than life, magnifying subjects with a minimum focus distance of 2 centimeters. Macro also extends to video including Slo-mo and Time-lapse. iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max also boast a new 77 mm Telephoto camera, allowing users to get closer to their subjects while recording video and achieve even more classically framed portraits, offering 3x optical zoom for a total 6x optical zoom range on the camera system.

The new app automatically and intelligently selects the best lens for the shot for users to take creative and beautiful close-up images with “crystal clear focus”.  All the photos are saved directly in the user’s Photos Library. It also features the following on-screen tools to help users frame and plan their shots:

  • Focus peaking outlines what parts of your photo are in focus.
  • The grid helps you position your subject on the screen.
  • Histogram lets you visualize the relative brightness of your shot.
