With the release of iOS 13.1, Federico Viticci of MacStories found that Apple reintroduced URLs to launch specific areas of the Settings app, including those for the Camera.
There's a really cool feature in iOS 13 that allows you to watch a series of concurrently taken Live Photo's simultaneously as one long video.
I noticed this a few weeks ago when I was watching a Live Photo and it kept on going through the others I took. It took me a few minutes to realize what was going on.
As a bonus, you're also able to select a group of those same Live Photos and extract them as one long video.
This is a huge feature I hadn't heard about before stumbling upon it. I almost always shoot with Live Photos enabled in case something happens that I want to turn into a GIF later. Can't wait to see what other hidden gems are in the release.

This month, I fell back in love with shooting in black and white.
While the Camera app shines in its simplicity and ease of use, there are several things Apple could do to improve it. While these often come with the release of new iPhones, there are things that could come in the software that need to be fixed. Some of these could be considered pro features, I think the general user would benefit from having them in what is likely the most popular camera in the world.
Over the weekend, I was listening a recent episode of John Gruber’s The Talk Show with guest Merlin Mann and the subject came up.
The most basic rule of photography is to have the light behind you, they said.
Some really nice photos here. A testament to not only the power of the iPhone camera system, but the photographers who use it. The comments from the judges also provides good insight to what makes the photos stand out.
As easy as it is to hit “Go Live” on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, there are still looming pitfalls. It is live after all. Here are six things I do before I go live to ensure a successful broadcast.
