Tips for Using New Camera App with iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

With the launches of iOS 8 along with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple also updated the Camera app so users can get the most of their phone cameras. With three new features that include greater control over exposure and focus, a self-timer, and the ability to make time-lapse videos, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners have greater photography capabilities.

Manual Exposure Adjustment

It used to be that users had to set the focus and exposure simultaneously and without adjustments. Now, however, users can adjust these independently.

  • Tap the part of the screen over the image you want to focus. A yellow sun icon will appear to indicate your focal point.
  • Swipe up or down anywhere on the screen to adjust the exposure. Swiping UP will make the image brighter and swiping DOWN will make the image darker.



As smartphone cameras move beyond grainy selfie images and into legitimate photography quality, the demand for self-timing features has increased. Now users have the choice between a 3 second or 10 second timer option.

  • Tap the self-timer button which appears to the left of the screen as a clock icon.
  • Select either 3 or 10 second delay.
  • Tap the shutter button to begin the onscreen countdown.
  • The camera will take 10 consecutive shots in burst mode from which you can choose.

    Time-Lapse Video

    While there are editing programs available with some of these features, the updated Camera app now allows users to record video over a period of time and then speed up the footage.

  • Swipe through the list of shooting modes until you come to Time-Lapse.
  • Set the focus and exposure.
  • Tap the shutter button to start recording.
  • Tap the shutter again to stop recording.

    For those who do not yet have the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, the updated Camera app will work on other devices that are upgrades with iOS 8.
