Fun Fact about iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max Cameras

Though you probably already owned iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max or just in eyeing or toying stage, but I guess very likely you don’t know about this very fun fact about iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max 3-cameras.

So I’m writing this for anyone who are curious how the 3 cameras on iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max works.

How iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max Camera Works

iPhone 11 Pro and its twin iPhone 11 Pro Max has 3 camera configuration at the back of its body. Everybody knows that. But what most of you don’t know is that when Camera app is activated, the 3 cameras don’t get activated at the same time.

When Camera app is opened, by default PHOTO mode is selected for you. Now on iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, unlike previous iPhone, it has 3 icons, respectively: .5, 1x and 2.

They are:

  • .5x: Ultra wide
  • 1x: Normal wide
  • 2x: Telephoto / Zoom

Now, this is the interesting part. Like I said earlier, the 3 cameras at the back of iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max doesn’t get activated at the same timing, but Apple has made it so seamless, whenever you switch between modes (Telephoto to Wide to Ultra-Wide or vice versa) or whenever you zoom in and out, the 3 cameras switch on and off without you noticing.

Don’t believe me? The easiest way to test it out is to cover the 3 cameras with your fingers. Cover the 3 of them. Then as you change between modes, try to lift up your finger to see which cameras get activated.

But here, let me summarize it for you.

When you are taking Telephoto photos (2x mode), the upper and lower cameras are both turned on.

When you are taking normal Wide photos (1x mode), the upper and middle cameras are both turned on.

When you are taking Ultra Wide photos (.5x mode), the middle camera is turned on.

Keep switching between the 3 modes and try to zoom-in and out to see how magical (read: seamless) Apple made the 3 cameras to work!

Tell me at the comment section below if you have just learned this fact that the 3 cameras on iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max don’t get activated at the same time, but interchangeably depends on which mode you are using.
