Apple iOS 10.1 beta adds the Portrait Camera mode for the iPhone 7 Plus

Apple iOS 10.1 beta brings bokeh look to portrait photos taken with iPhone 7 Plus
The iOS 10.1 beta comes with the Portrait Camera mode feature available for those sporting the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and its dual-camera setup. The beta version of the update allows the phone to utilize the second camera on back to produce a bokeh effect on pictures snapped in portrait mode. With this enabled, you can take a portrait of a person and have the background blurred beautifully.

Right now, iOS 10.1 beta is available only for developers. That will change on Friday, when the iOS 10.1 beta is made available to the public. The depth of field feature will work with people only, and requires the subject to be within 8-feet away from the phone. Too far away, and a message will tell you to move the subject within 8-feet of the handset. If the subject is too close, you'll get a message telling you to move farther away.

Other things on the changelist include a fix for motion handling, and developers will be able to access barometric pressure readings for the Apple iPad Air 2, Apple iPad mini 4 and the Apple iPad Pro. Also available for developers today is the first beta update for WatchOS 3. That would be WatchOS 3.1 beta.
