Apple's iPhone XS ($ 999 at Sprint) and XS Max ($ 1,100 at Sprint) have added a new feature to the camera that gives users more control over photos in the camera Portrait mode gives
Specifically, this means that the iPhone XS line is no longer able to make changes after taking the photo with the amount of background blur, which is also called bokeh, but is recorded in each photo.
Starting with iOS 12.1, which is currently in beta, users also have the option to change the blur in a photo before pressing the shutter button.
Now let's take a shot look at how you can get exactly the shot you want.
More or less blurry?
Using an iPhone XS or XS Max, open a portrait photo and tap the Edit button. The photo may take a second or two to fully load, but once you do so, you will see a series of lines just below the photo with the label Depth .
Above the preselected line should be "f4 .5." This label describes the aperture in which the current photo is set, and is also called the "aperture". The smaller the aperture value, the more blur is present in the background. Conversely, the larger the f-number, the less fuzziness there will be. The iPhone XS can be adjusted from f1.4 to f16.
Use the slider to adjust the depth until you get the look you want. Changes are made in real time so you can move back and forth and see the impact right away. If you are satisfied with your photo, tap Done .
