iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max Could Get Macro Mode Toggle in iOS 15.2

According to Macrumors, the second beta of iOS 15.2 is adding a toggle for macro mode on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Originally, the macro mode will automatically enable itself when you place the camera close to a subject within around 2 cm. The new toggle in beta means that users will have more control over the camera feature on whether they would prefer the main camera mode or macro mode when taking pictures.

The new feature offers a flower icon on the bottom left of the screen when the camera is placed close enough to a subject to trigger the macro mode. Users can tap the icon to enable or disable macro mode whenever they want.

To try the feature, users can turn off Auto Macro under the Camera tab in the Settings. The toggle will then appear automatically when it is close enough to a subject. Preserve Settings for Auto Macro will be available too. In iOS 15.1, users can also turn off macro mode completely but they would need to do so in the settings, which is quite a hassle.

The second beta of iOS 15.2 also includes improvements like Legacy Contacts, Find My lost item scanning, Communication Safety, and more.
