The improvements don’t just stop with the hardware, however. New software features make iPhone 11 photos sharp enough to compete with even the best champion in low light – see how that here.
Taking pictures with the new iPhones is just as easy as it is on previous iPhones. However, Apple’s new photo capabilities need to be explained using a tool that can help you downsize a photo after this You’ve got the recording of what Deep Fusion is and what tradeoff to know before using it. We make you work.
Quick settings are still there
The next time you take a group photo with your iPhone and want to use the built-in timer, you may have a hard time finding the switch. Apple moved the settings for things like the timer and filters because they aren’t used too often. Personally, I like the clean look, but you will certainly need to adjust at some point before taking a picture.
Tap the arrow at the top of the screen to see all of the toggle buttons when you hold your iPhone vertically. The arrow changes direction, showing the various switches – flash, live photos, aspect ratio, timer, and filter – and you tap the button again to hide it once you’re done. Alternatively, swipe the viewfinder to see the switches.
Resize photos afterwards
All three iPhone 11 models have an ultra-wide-angle camera that allows you to take some pretty dramatic photos. However, the ultrawide camera has a hidden function: it can be used to shrink a photo that you take with the wide-angle or telephoto lenses – after you’ve taken it.
In other words, if you took a group photo but took the picture without everyone in the frame and didn’t recognize it until later, you can go into the Photos app and use the cropping tool to zoom out to bring the person back into the shot .
To use this function, you have to open it the settings App and select camera. Scroll down and turn on Photo capture outside the frame. Any information that is captured outside of the frame and that you don’t end up using is deleted after 30 days.
I admit this feature is really confusing. Some of the photos I take show the square star icon indicating that more information is available outside of the frame. However, when I try to downsize the photo in the crop tool, nothing is seen there. Other photos, like the one shown above, have a lot more going for them.
It turns out that there are two different ways to access the information captured outside of the frame. The first is to open a photo with the square start icon shown above, select the crop tool, and zoom out.
However, if you are trying to downsize a photo and nothing happens, here’s what you need to do: Select the option harvest Tool, then tap that Three dot symbol in the upper right corner and select Use content outside of the frame. If you’ve already cropped and straightened the photo, you’ll see a warning about resetting your previous crops. Tap to accept and you can edit the ultrawide recording.
Depending on how you take the photo, your iPhone will either stitch the ultrawide shot around the main photo (if you can resize it), or it will take two different photos and only show the ultrawide version if you specifically request it via the menu option.
See? It is confusing. There should be a tweaked editing tool for using the photo taken outside of the frame, but all you need to know: when you see the square star icon, you will can Reduce the size of the cropping tool or dive into the cropping menu.
But wait, what about Deep Fusion?
Ah yes. Deep fusion. There is no Deep Fusion setting or toggling to turn on. Your iPhone 11 will take photos using the new technology by default as long as you have done so Photo capture outside the frame switched off. If you’ve enabled it, your phone will still take photos that you can resize later, but the computing magic Apple does with Deep Fusion won’t work. You also need to make sure that you are taking photos with the standard 1x camera for Deep Fusion to work.
Push the night mode to its limits
Use ofis something you really don’t have to think about. Whenever your iPhone detects that there is not enough light available, it will display the night mode icon next to the arrow button (it looks like a moon with a few lines). If it’s yellow it means night mode is active.
The button also indicates a period of time, e.g. B. “1s” (one second), which is how long it will take to take the photo. This means that after you press the shutter button, you have to hold still for that long.
When you take a photo in night mode, you’re not at the mercy of your iPhone. You can customize or turn off night mode by tapping the night mode icon and then moving the slider next to the shutter button. Set 0 to turn off night mode for the next photo, or adjust the time to increase or decrease the number of shots in night mode.
For example, if you move the timer from 2 seconds to 9 seconds, your iPhone will take an overall brighter picture with a risk of overexposure. On the other hand, if you switch from 5s to 1s, the end result is likely to be a darker photo.
Play around with Night Mode by making these adjustments and have fun with it.

Fine adjustment of the zoom
The next time you’re at a concert and want a more accurate picture of Taylor Swift, or want to make sure you capture your kid’s adorable costume during a school game, take advantage of all three cameras and their respective zoom levels.
The iPhone 11 has an ultra wide angle camera and a wide angle camera. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro max have the same two cameras, along with a telephoto camera. All three cameras have 12 megapixels each.
Regardless of which iPhone you have, the main camera is the widescreen camera, the option marked “1x” in the camera app. If you want to switch between cameras, you can tap the zoom option – either 0.5x or 2x. Your iPhone’s viewfinder will instantly zoom in or out.
However, you can adjust exactly how far you want to zoom in either direction by long-pressing the zoom level and then dragging the zoom tool. With the new zoom wheel you can zoom between 0.5x and 10x.
Keep in mind that the camera’s digital zooming may affect your photo quality if you select something other than the three fixed cameras (0.5x, 1x, 2x) instead of using the fixed focal lengths of the built-in cameras.
If you’re just starting out with yours, read our piece about one really . Once it’s set up, these are the ones . And then you probably should get complements the equation to make the iPhone 11 a really powerful phone.
