Today we bring you one of those news that never ceases to amaze me as I write it. It is well known that Apple generally hides certain characteristics of its devices, either because they are not yet activated, or because they have not passed the quality standards of the company. Cupertino and have been disabled.
Apparently, the iPad Pro includes a macro lens feature, something we weren’t told about and also isn’t present on the iPhone Pro.
This feature has been noticed by the developers of Halide, a popular iOS camera app that delights millions of users around the world. It was on their blog that they noticed that the iPad Pro’s camera is able to focus at distances even less than three centimeters. If you have your iPhone handy, it’s easy to notice that when you’re too close to the object you want to photograph, absolutely nothing is visible.
Apparently, and despite the fact that the Cupertino company hasn’t said anything about it, the 2021 iPad Pro’s camera with Apple’s M1 processor is capable of taking pictures in macro format, therefore, at much shorter distances even than that of the 2020 iPad Pro itself was able to take, on Halide’s blog they compared the two iPads and the result is amazing. This can undoubtedly mean the arrival of a macro sensor on the future iPhone 13 range which will arrive at the end of the year.
