iPhone 13, The Best Apple Phone!
I have been fortunate enough to receive the newest iPhone every year, and the upgrades to the phones are always incredible. As an influencer, I take photos all the time, and I no longer own a camera, I only use my iPhone for photography, and the camera features gets better and better every single year!

Earlier this year, Apple introduced iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max which are equipped with the most advanced camera systems ever on iPhone, perfectly versatile for capturing all of your special moments this holiday season. iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini boast an advanced dual-camera system with a new Wide camera with bigger pixels and sensor-shift optical image stabilization, offering major improvements in low light photos and videos. iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max bring new camera lenses and sensors for all three rear cameras —Telephoto – 77mm (3x), Wide – 26mm (1x) and Ultra Wide – 13mm (0.5x) — offering massive improvements and new capabilities to photo and video. iPhone’s ease of use, unobtrusive form factor and universal familiarity allows the technology to melt away, creating a vulnerability between the subjects and those behind the lens, without being obtrusive or distracting.
- Cinematic mode will automatically rack focus to the most prominent subject in the video.
- Some examples of auto focus changes:
- New prominent subject enters the frame.
- Subject turns away from the camera.
- Subject exits the frame.
- Some examples of auto focus changes:
- For full control, tap to move the focus point while recording, and double tap to track a subject.
- Choose the level of bokeh, or background blur, before or after you shoot by tapping the f in the upper lefthand corner.
- Cinematic mode works on the Wide and Telephoto cameras on the rear, and the TrueDepth camera on the front.
- Note: Cinematic mode records in 1080p resolution at 30fps.
- The depth of field effect, including the level of bokeh and where the focus is applied, can also be edited after capture
- Note: Cinematic mode can be edited in Photos, iMovie, and Clips for iOS, and on Mac with Photos, iMovie and Final Cut with macOS Monterey.
- On iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, Portrait mode is available on the Wide and front cameras. With iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, Portrait mode can be used with the front, Telephoto and Wide cameras.
- Place the primary point of focus near the center of the frame, as that’s where the sharpest focus is when shooting in macro.
- Although enabled by the Ultra Wide (.5x) camera, try shooting at 1x for tighter framing—iPhone will automatically switch cameras as you get close while maintaining the 1x framing.
- Macro focus works in video, including time-lapse and slo-mo.
- Note: when shooting slo-mo at 240fps, focus locks when you start recording so ensure iPhone 13 Pro is in position before hitting record.
- Tap to focus works for macro photos and videos to set a specific focus point.
- Note: tapping to focus in video before recording will lock focus once recording begins.
- When shooting in macro, ensure your hand or iPhone don’t block your lighting source.
- Open Procreate. Start with a colored background or with a photo.
- You can zoom in, using the selection tool to incrementally tap with the pencil to create precise selections.
- Make your own textures by shrinking or enlarging your brush size and drawing on top of your selection.
- Try different layer mixing modes to find an unexpected color combination.
- Hold the Apple Pencil a little further back from the tip.
- You can also “draw” with the eraser.
- Try different things on different layers! You can always turn off a layer if you don’t like how it looks.
- Use a lower layer opacity under a new layer as a way to trace.
- Create something with feeling. For example it can be happy, sad, funny or even angry.

My son is hoping to get one after the new year. Just wondering if it’s true; did you check the box under the white partition? It’s claimed that there is a new phone case under it. Let me know if you find one.
