Portrait mode allows you to take stunning photos with better zoom, focus and effects. This mode has been a favorite of iPhone fans, particularly with the newer iPhone models.

For the iPhone 7, you need the iPhone 7 Plus to access Portrait Mode. Keep reading to learn more about Portrait mode and how to use it.

Portrait mode uses the iPhone 7 Plus’ cameras to take photos with a depth-of-field effect. This lets you snap pictures that keep your subject sharp while blurring the background.

To Take a Portrait Mode Picture:

  1. Open your Camera app.
  2. Swipe on your camera modes to “Portrait.”
  3. Stand far enough away where the subject and background can be distinguished.
  4. Tap the shutter button on the screen to take the picture.
