Rotate & Edit Your Videos
I, for one, think it’s abouttime that Apple allowed us toedit our videos. I have a badhabit of recording my videos thewrong way, which means theyfrequently need to be rotated. Torotate and edit your videos, justselect your video from the Photos app and tap the Edit optionat the top right. You’ll then seean option to rotate and crop yourvideo in a row along the bottom,as well as options to add filters,adjust settings such as contrastand exposure, trim the length,and remove sound.
Access the Zoom Wheel
For more control and theability to zoom up to 10x in theCamera app, you’ll appreciatethe zoom wheel feature. Whenyou long press any of the zoomicons listed above your shutterbutton, a dial will pop up. Moveyour finger to the left along thedial to zoom in. Move your finger to the right to zoom out. Ifyou have an iPhone or iPad withmore than one camera lens,you have optical zoom and cantap the 2X option without losingresolution. Aside from that, thegeneral rule is that the more youzoom in, the more pixellatedyour photo will become.
Take a 12 MP Selfie
If you have the iPhone 11 oriPhone 11 Pro, then when youtake selfies in landscape mode,the camera will automaticallyzoom out to take a 12 MP selfie,which is great when you aretrying to fit a bunch of people ina single shot. If you are taking aselfie in Portrait mode though,by default the camera will zoomin for a 7 MP selfie. But youcan adjust that! Just tap on theexpand icon along the bottom ofthe frame and the camera willzoom out. Likewise, if you don’twant a wider shot, you can tapthe icon and the camera willzoom in slightly.
View Images by Day, Month
I take a lot of photos. Thatmeans it can be tricky for me tofind specific shots. But Appleadded some useful options tothe Photos app in iOS 13 tohelp with this process. Fromthe Photos tab, I can view myphotos by Years, Months, Days,or All Photos. This makes lookingback over memories a lot morefun, as the Photos app highlightsthe shots that it thinks I wantto see. And if you take a ton ofscreenshots (like me), don’t worry. These shots are intelligentlysorted out of your memories(but you can see them under AllPhotos).
