One of the highlight features of Apple’s new iPhone 11 Pro is when the developers of the Filmic Pro video capture app showed how video could be captured on the phone’s multiple cameras simultaneously. This meant that video could be captured using the front-facing camera and rear-facing cameras at the same time.
It also showed how video that uses the phone’s ultra-wide lens and the standard lens can also be shot at the same time, thus making the editing and filming process a lot easier. The good news for older iPhone users is that if you love these features, it has been confirmed that they will be making its way to older iPhones as well.
This means that if you own the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, you should be able to expect the feature come iOS 13. It will also be finding its way to the 2018 iPad Pro. According to Apple, this feature required Apple to make rework some of the hardware of the iPhone, which they did starting with last year’s models, which is why earlier iPhones will not be able to take advantage of it despite them featuring multiple cameras as well.
That being said, due to the processing that needs to be done with multiple cameras, there will be some limitations on which camera combinations can be used with the older iPhone models, so that’s something to take note of.
