Among the many iPhone 13 camera improvements is the new Photographic Styles. The feature allows you to save a preset for the default Camera app and you can also quickly change between the five available options in the moment. Let’s look at how to use iPhone 13 Photographic Styles.
Photographic Styles are exclusive to the iPhone 13 lineup. However, there’s always a chance Apple could expand the feature to iPhone 12 or other models with a software update in the future.
Notably, once you’ve snapped an image with a Photographic Style, it can’t be changed. Below we’ll look at how to set a style as well as how to change it on the fly while shooting.
How to use iPhone 13 Photograhic Styles
Select Photographic Styles in Settings
- The first time you open the default Camera app on iPhone 13 you’ll see a splash screen asking to choose a Photographic style
- If you didn’t initially pick one, you can head to the Settings app > Camera > swipe down to Photographic Styles
- The first option is “Standard Style,” swipe to see how each of the styles compare
- There are 5 styles in total, with the four others beyond standard being “Rich Contrast,” “Vibrant,” “Warm,” and “Cool”
