iOS 15.2 Beta 2 integrates macro mode switching into the iPhone 13 Pro camera app


iOS 15.2 Beta 2 brings a new Macro mode switch to iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max when Auto Macro is disabled in Settings. The button allows you to manually deactivate Macro mode from the camera app.

First spotted by YouTuber Aaron Zollo, the new switch is a flower icon visible in the lower left corner of the Camera app when the iPhone is close enough to the subject to automatically enable Macro mode. Touching it can enable or disable the automatic transition to Macro mode.

Open the Settings application, select Camera, and turn off Auto Macro to start using a new switch. Now that the iPhone is close to the subject, the flower icon switch should appear automatically. Auto Macro now also has a new Preserve Settings feature.

This switch should solve the problem that users face when the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max inadvertently switch to Macro mode if the subject is too close to the camera. So far, iOS 15.1 has forced users to go to the Settings app and completely disable Macro mode, even if they wanted to temporarily turn it off.

Watch this Zollo video to understand how this feature works.

Our Take

This new switch in iOS 15.2 Beta 2 certainly makes it convenient for users to turn macro mode on and off automatically. However, this inevitably adds clutter to the iOS camera interface, and Apple could have been left without it had it refined its automatic switching algorithm from the start.

Do you think this new switch is here to stay, or is it just buying time for Apple to improve its macro mode automatic switching algorithm? Share your opinion with us in the comments!
