Do you want to take better shots with your iPhone but don't know much about photography? If that's the case, you might want to check out Apple's new "How to Shoot on iPhone 7" tutorial series.
The tech giant recently updated its YouTube channel with a bunch of short informational videos which aim to teach iPhone 7 and 7 Plus owners a few tricks on how to properly utilize the camera on their handset.
Each clip is about 40 seconds long and features simple text instructions accompanied by some funky electronic beats. They can provide you with the basics on taking good panorama shots, close-ups, portraits, and so on.
If you like what you see and would like to learn more, it will be best to head straight to Apple's dedicated webpage for the series (link is located below). There, you'll be able to see the full list of 16 tutorials, which is far greater than the modest selection of 5 clips that made the cut to Cupertino's YouTube channel.
The entire collection includes:
- How to shoot a great portrait.
- How to shoot a close-up.
- How to shoot a vertical Pano.
- How to shoot without a flash.
- How to shoot action.
- How to shoot a selfie with the timer.
- How to capture a unique angle.
- How to shoot stills while filming.
- How to shoot with street light.
- How to shoot a bold and simple image.
- How to shoot during golden hour.
- How to shoot a one-handed selfie.
- How to edit a selfie.
- How to shoot a sunset silhouette.
- How to shoot a group portrait.
- How to shoot a backlit subject.

How low is the average iphone user's IQ that he needs tutorials on taking photos on a phone?

Apparently higher than yours since they want to take better pics as the article says, not taking average pictures, not mentioning that they invest their money in a better way, but anyway I understand that's beyond your comprehension

TBH, if anyone wanted to take "better" pictures, they would buy a real camera and not even use a phone. Or if you must get a phone, Android is better because the camera software allows for people who understand PRO settings, on how to adjust the camera settings to take better photos. If Apple "TRULY" wants you to take better pictures, then give back a PRO mode where we can adjust resolution, IOS, shutter speed and more. Stop using preset BS that we've seen do a terrible job. Most photos we see online that were taken with an iPhone, likely use special attached lenses to get better quality. Because the iPhone only beats cheap phones. at photos out the box. The best thing, first because the iPhone takes very up close photos, stand back. Have good lighting. Be careful of bright lights as the camera always over-exposes the white to an unnatural color, be weary of your storage, because you can change the photo resolution unless you are texting it or emailing it. From my experience, video come out better if, if it is a low light situation, lowering the resolution gets better results. In making iOS easy to use for a 5 year old, it takes away benefits for people who have extra knowledge and want to make changes to get better results. Overpriced kiddie phone. Apple...let people who can handle more advanced features have them. How can you claim the "most advanced mobile operating system", when you can't even do advanced things with it?
