Learn how to get that beautiful blurry background effect.

Ever wonder why some people’s photos look so professional? They could have an expensive camera. Or it could just be Portrait Mode. This feature enhances close-ups by blurring the background and keeping the subject sharp—whether you’re capturing your child’s first day of school or just taking a silly photo of your dog.  

Here’s how to use Portrait Mode to take a stunning picture:

Step 1

Open the Camera app and swipe left to Portrait Mode.

Step 2

Adjust the distance until the yellow banner appears. You’ll need to be a few feet from your subject.

Step 3

Swipe or tap under the yellow banner to choose a lighting effect.

Step 4

Take your photo.
