Apple releases soccer-themed videos showing how to use several features for the iPhone X cameras



If you own an Apple iPhone X, you might not be taking advantage of some of the features available for the handset's cameras. In a series of videos released today by Apple, you'll see how to use the tenth anniversary iPhone to snap great pictures of your kids playing in a soccer league (assuming you have kids in such a league; taking pictures of another parent's children could be seen as creepy). The same tips could come in handy if you're in Russia for the 2018 World Cup, which starts today.

Other videos show you how to employ Pano mode (for panoramic shots), give you directions for shooting video in Slo-mo, how to get that perfect moment frozen in time using Burst mode and how to shoot using backlight for dramatic images.

Check out all five videos. One you'll find at the top of this article, and the four remaining clips are directly below. You'll notice that Apple is using a soccer theme, no doubt because of the World Cup fever that now covers the world. Even in the U.S., where the national team didn't qualify for the tournament this year, excitement is high as North America has been selected to host the World Cup in 2026.

It is football and not soccer, because Americans transformed Rugby to some to pussy game with armour called football!

Funny man you are. Don't forget you and every other Apple hater voted the iPhone X best camera in that blind test. It will haunt you for years, I know.

Nah, PhoneArena switched around the phones after the votes so the one they liked won.

Oh god, you're clinging on to that one test as if your life dependent on it. Are we just supposed to ignore all of the blind tests that the iPhone X lost? I also don't think a blind test made on PhoneArena is the biggest authority on cameras. A small test consisting of like 6 photos is not exactly conclusive.

Have you noticed that you can't write "I"phonearena anymore? It literally switches it back to PhoneArena, it's quite funny. They're literally censoring people calling them out on bias, if there is bias present.

You are such an idiot, if you really think this site is biased AND you continue to utilize it, then there is no hope for you. Contact Dignitas to put yourself at peace, plus you’ll stop being a burden to those around you.

Let's test it.. iPhoneArena Delusional, just like the rest of your herd. Leave the authors and this website alone. The authors do a great job. If you don't like it, you know where the door is.

Well well, the Apple fanboy is on damage control duty by literally insulting anyone who dares to say literally anything about his favorite fruit brand that isn't positive. Literally telling me i have no life, because i dare to talk about your fruit brand? You need to take a hard look at yourself. My comments are typically long, because i explain my logic. Sure, you might disagree, but it's not hating when it's presented like that.
