Looking for a way to turn off macro photos on iPhone 13 Pro? Make no mistake, this is a spectacular feature of iOS 15. However, it can get annoying at times. The viewfinder shakes when the camera module automatically switches from wide angle to ultra wide angle!
IPhone 13 Pro Macro Photo Facts
By default, iOS 15 is set to automatically switch to Macro mode when an object is detected in close proximity to the iPhone’s camera.
Apple advises that you can take Macro photos and videos at a distance as close as 2cm (less than an inch away). The problem is the distance that causes Macro mode to trigger. In some cases, Macro mode may start even when you do not want to take a Macro photo!
How to turn off macro photos on iPhone 13 Pro
- 1. Open Settings and press Camera.
- 2. Scroll to Auto macro.
- 3. Turn it off using the toggle.
That’s it! You have now prevented the iPhone 13 Pro from automatically switching to Ultra Wide Camera to capture macro photos and videos.
Macro photography not available?
Unfortunately, this is an iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max feature.
IPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, and earlier devices will not show Auto Macro option in camera settings.
Advice: If you have a compatible device and Macro mode is not triggered, force restart your device and try again!
