Users of iPhone XR, XS and XS Max, in addition to the 2018 iPad Pro, will receive, with the help of iOS 13, one of the new features of the new iPhones 11: they will be able to record videos with more than one camera at the same time. The new version of the operating system may allow developers to activate the cameras, but with limitations.
During the presentation of the new iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, Apple showed an application called Filmic Pro that can shoot with the four cameras of the iPhone 11 Pro at the same time, placing the rear three to record the video close to the front . What until then seemed an exclusive feature of the new iPhones, can also be used, in a way, on the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max, together with the latest iPad Pro.
This type of recording is possible thanks to the use of a new API that was inserted in iOS 13. The only problem is that last year’s high-end devices will not be able to use all lenses at the same time. On the iPhone XS, which has two at the back and one at the front, the user can only choose two at the same time – whatever the combination.
The limitation may be linked to excessive consumption of processing and battery, or with the marketing sector of Apple that wants to sell the iPhones 11 for this – remember Siri that it did not work on any iPhone inferior to the iPhone 4S?
