22 iPhone Tricks You Didn’t Know You Could Do

– Lock autofocus and exposure:

Apple has always put the best camera lenses on its iPhone devices. Photos and videos turn out beautifully and the on-device editing options are also pretty neat. There are a few tricks you could use to improve the photography experience on the iPhone though.

When you’re using the Camera app, a long-press on the screen locks the autofocus and exposure at what it is during that moment. This is particularly useful for those who don’t like their professional-grade videos being plagued by focus and exposure pops.

Lock Autofocus

To access this cool iPhone feature, you need to first decide upon the point where you want the iPhone camera to focus. You must then long-press on that point, and the focus, as well as the exposure, will get locked instantly.

To undo this iPhone feature, or to set another point for focus and exposure, you can tap anywhere on the screen again. As you can see in the picture accompanying this tip, an icon saying AE/AF Lock will be on the screen for as long as you have decided to keep the lock on.
