Apple studied the art of cinematography and developed Cinematic Mode on its new iPhones.
It lets you add a depth of field effect and dynamic focus transitions automatically giving you the power to create videos with amazing Hollywood-level polish, just like in the movies.
This feature automatically detects a person, object, or animal, bringing them into focus and softening the background around them. When you record the video in this mode, the camera will change focus intuitively when it recognizes a new face or subject, creating the ultimate cinematic effect.
Shift Focus on Recorded Videos
A recorded video in Cinematic Mode can be edited on your iPhone to shift focus or change the depth of field on the subjects.
Here’s Apple’s detailed guide: Edit Video in Cinematic Mode
