How to Use iPhone 7 Plus Portrait Mode to Take a Better Picture?

What exactly is Portrait mode on the iPhone 7 Plus, and how do you use it? Here's everything you need to know.


If you've been lucky enough to get your hands on an iPhone 7 Plus and iOS 10.1, you have access to iOS's newest camera feature: Portrait mode. When in Portrait mode, you can only shoot with the telephoto lens — there are no zoom options, digital or otherwise — nor can you access the Flash, HDR, Live Photos, or Filters. (You can, however, access a 3- and 10-second timer if you want to take a timed photo.)


Portrait mode is currently in beta, and only officially supports taking pictures of people with its face and body mapping — but you can experiment with other subjects, too. Here's how!


How to enable Portrait mode ?


1. Update your device to iOS 10.1.

2. Open the Camera app.

3. Slide the Camera wheel over to Portrait mode.

4. Tap Try the Beta.

1. Line up the shot you wish to take within 8 feet of your subject. The face and body detection should automatically identify your subject.

2. Pay attention to the Camera app's prompts (either "More light required," "Place subject within 8 feet," or "Move farther away."

3. Once you've met the camera's needs, you'll see a yellow banner at the bottom that reads "Depth Effect". You can then take a photo at any time.

Shooting other, non-human objects isn't officially supported within Portrait mode, but you can still do so if you wish; just be prepared for the artificial depth of field to not look perfect.Using same steps as above, you can take a cute picture for your pets or other object.

How to shoot with a portrait mode in low light ?


If you're shooting in a dark room, you won't be able to officially use Portrait mode — there's just not enough light for the effect to work properly. But you can still use Portrait mode to take a low-light snap with the telephoto lens (in the normal Photo mode, it'll default to a digitally-zoomed wide-angle shot if there's not enough light): Just line up your shot and take a snap, even if the Depth Effect isn't live.


You won't get the nice artificial blur that comes with the Depth Effect, but you'll still get a low-light portrait — though it may not be the nicest shot in the world. (There's a reason Apple automatically switches to the wide-angle in Photo mode.)
