Yet more information has leaked on Apple's upcoming 10th-anniversary iPhone. The device, which is codenamed D22 has been referred to as the iPhone 8, iPhone Edition and the iPhone X. Apple is expected to announce the flagship iPhone alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The latest news comes from iPhone code within the HomePod firmware that was recently seeded to developers.
Live Photos were first introduced with iOS 9, allowing the iPhone to capture 3 seconds of live footage around a still image. Deep pressing on the still plays the short clip, adding life to the scene. iOS 11 taps into Live Photos potential, making them a bit more interesting with several new features. In addition to adding a much needed Live Photos album, you can now change the key frame of your Live Photo and add several effects including Loop, Bounce and Long Exposure. Here’s how to apply these new effects to live photos on your iPhone:
While lens filters for the iPhone's Camera app have been around for several iOS generations now, iOS 11 not only changes the available filters, but changes the user interface as well. Apple touts them in its iOS 11 preview:
"New professional-quality filters take the camera on iPhone to another level. Portrait photos are more expressive. Skin tones more natural. There are even filters for applying classic looks to your portraiture photography."
In a recent update Instagram allowed for posting up to 10 photos and/or videos in a single post in your Feed, rather than posting them all individually. The post will have an icon that lets viewers know there are more photos, and the blue dots at the bottom of the post will indicate that they can swipe over to see more. Here’s how to do it:
Instagram offers a couple ways to return to posts that you liked or found interesting. The app keeps track of every post that you have ever "liked" so you can return to them in the future, but this can quickly turn into a huge quantity to search through. You can also save posts even if you didn't "like" them, but again, this can become a mess to sort through as well.
