Every iPhone Apple currently sells, including the brand new iPhone SE, comes with Portrait mode and injects DSLR-like depth effects into your Camera app. If that's the shooting mode you use more than any other, it can be annoying to switch from "Photo" every time you open the app to "Portrait". But you can fix that, and there are a few different ways to do it.
The first option is the simplest, and you can continue to use "Photo" as the default camera mode when you open the app normally. To go straight to bokeh-like shots, just long-press the camera icon on the home screen, then tap or slide to "Take Portrait" or "Take Portrait Selfie."
you tend to use portrait mode through the lock screen shortcut, that won't help, but there is something that will. Go to Settings -> Camera -> Keep Settings and make sure "Camera Mode" is turned on. This switch tells your Camera app that it will open to the last used mode instead of always default to & # 39; Photo & # 39; to go. So if you mainly take portrait mode photos, it will open right to it if that's what you used last.
And this trick works for both regular portrait and selfie portrait photos.
Without "Camera Mode" Enabled, Portrait Mode Still Still Can Be Used Immediately After Opening The App Less Than 30 Seconds for that recording mode even if you forced closed the app. But after 30 seconds it will revert to the default "Photo" mode unless you have kept the recording mode, and even the app switcher doesn't matter.
