    Tips from Apple to take better macro photos on iPhone

    Step 1: Ensure to get very close to your subject. You can get as close as 2 cm (about an inch) away.
    Step 2: Place the primary point of focus near the centre of the frame, as that’s where the sharpest focus is when shooting in macro on iPhone 13 Pro/ Pro Max.
    Step 3: You should always tap an area in the viewfinder to set a specific focus point.
    Step 4: You should shoot at .5x to capture an Ultra Wide field of view, or try shooting at 1x for tighter framing. Your iPhone 13 Pro/Max will automatically switch cameras as you get close while maintaining the 1x framing.
