With the advent of the iPhone 13, Apple added a remarkable yet underrated feature to the Pro line of its phones: Macro Mode. The possibility of capturing close-up images of unique textures or subjects with your smartphone is finally here.
However, Apple had to add additional modifications for this feature to function correctly. In previous models, the ultra-wide lens could not concentrate, as it was a fixed lens, thus forcing the addition of new hardware for the ultra-wide lens in iPhone 13 and 14 Pro and Pro Max to focus accurately.
These upgrades became a total game changer for mobile creators. Until now, capturing a close-up image with the iPhone's Native camera was excruciatingly difficult. In contrast, Samsung Galaxy phones could function with Macro the year prior due to their minim focus distance at an optical level.
All this today — it's crucial to note that the native Apple or Galaxy phones do not provide an actual macros lens; conceive mine blowing magnification, you need a dedicated add-on lens like our Moment 10x Macro Lens. The ultrawide lens built into the iPhones for everyday close-ups will do just fine.
