One of the features of the iPhone 13 is the ability to take macro photos. However, it is a bit annoying to use, as the macro mode is automatically enabled when it detects an object up close, which is sometimes not what the user intended. Later, Apple introduced a switch in settings where users could manually disable macro mode.
However, this is not ideal because what if the user wanted to use it again later? Fortunately, it seems that finally in iOS 15.2 Apple gets it right. According to a tweet from @ DylanMcD8, it appears that in the latest beta of iOS 15.2, Apple adds a macro change within the camera app.

How it works, as you can see in the video above, is that when it detects an image very closely, a small icon with a flower turns yellow to indicate that it is in macro mode. However, if that was not the user’s intention, they can simply tap the icon to disable it and tap it again to turn it back on.
It’s quick and easy to use and we don’t know why this wasn’t part of the design in the first place, but we guess it’s better late than never. iOS 15.2 is still in beta and this feature is only for the iPhone 13 that supports macro, so if you own an iPhone 13 this could be an update to look forward to.
