iOS 13.2 exterminates numerous bugs that have manifested themselves in the popular operating system, it improves the smartphone camera with a new technology called Deep Fusion and adds over 200 new emoji for Apple fans to enjoy.
With all those features, it would be easy to skip over a very subtle, but equally as important, change that’s been made in the new software.
iPhones have always been renowned for their video recording capabilities. In fact, the iPhone 11 series has established itself as arguably the best on the market for capturing pixel-packed footage.
Of course, Apple’s newest handsets give users plenty of options when capturing video. The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max all let users choose whether they want to record in 4K, 1080p and provides a number of frame rates to record in such as 60fps, 30fps and 24fps for 4K.
Videographers care a lot about settings. For that reason, it’s a pretty common to see iPhone owners bemoaning the lack of an easily-accessible toggle to switch resolution and frame rate on the fly.
But until now, Apple’s default camera app hasn’t exactly played nice. Instead, the handset has forced fans to head to the phone’s settings if they want to toy with either.
That all changes in iOS 13.2 though, although you’ll need to be using either an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max to take advantage.
The new camera app in iOS 13.2 has an indicator at the top right-hand side that will display what frame rate and resolution you’re currently recording in. That can be changed instantaneously by tapping the area in question. All iPhone videographers rejoice!
It’s currently unclear why Apple has limited the nifty tool to just its newest iPhone models. But we’re holding it hope it could debut in older handsets if it proves to be popular.
As we mentioned above, this change certainly isn’t the only new addition in iOS 13.2. By far the headline act of the new software is Deep Fusion.
While Apple’s Smart HDR and dedicated night modes ensure the iPhone 11 series can take great snaps in daylight and darkness respectively, Deep Fusion has been designed from the ground-up to make sure the handset captures detailed photos everywhere in-between.
Apple showed off a few examples during its iPhone hardware event back in September, most of which were people wearing sweaters in dimly lit areas that weren’t quite dark enough for the iPhone to activate its dedicated night mode. Not only were the shots impressive, they also earned Deep Fusion the nickname of “Sweater Mode” amongst fans.
iOS 13.2 also adds 230 new emoji and eradicates a number of bugs present in older versions of the new operating system.
If you haven’t already updated your iPhone to iOS 13.2, you can do so by heading to Settings > General > Software Update.
