Apple’s huge iOS 8 disclose at WWDC made with it a couple of functions that we never saw coming. One attribute that’s significantly less unanticipated but possibly one that has actually slid under the radar, is the Cam app’s brand-new time-lapse mode.

iOS 8 time lapse

With brand-new cam attributes being buried beneath all kinds of system-level additions to iOS 8, it’s understandable that several people have missed out on the fact that Apple’s iOS tools will certainly now have the ability to fire time-lapse video clips right from the stock Cam application.

It’s a feature that has actually been offered as a bolt-on by means of third-party apps for a while, but this is the initial time Apple’s very own application has sustained time-lapse. And we invite the attribute with arms vast open.

For those not familiar with the suggestion, time-lapse digital photography is the procedure of taking an image every couple of secs and then sewing them together to make a video clip. The result is a video that captures points that take hours or days to happen, but are then revealed in a video that takes a fraction of the time. Popular subjects for such videos are flowers opening up, high-rise buildings being constructed and hectic city streets. Some very outstanding effects can be developed making use of time-lapse, and iOS 8 brings it to the iPhone and iPad.

If that does not offer you on time-lapse though, how regarding a helpful video showcasing the kinds of points feasible with time-lapse, and developed making use of an iPhone 5s and iOS 8 no much less. The video clip covers all the examples you ‘d expect a time-lapse demonstration to take in, and looks absolutely magnificent. Consider the fact this was taken on a smartphone, and it ares much more impressive.

Have a look at it for on your own and you’ll absolutely be impressed. A minimum of we were!


Apple showcased iOS 8 at WWDC and made the initial beta develop available to designers throughout the first day of the occasion. The last version of iOS 8 will be launched at the same time as the next iPhone, which is anticipated to be sometime around September. With any luck the time-lapse feature will not be one of those that vanishes prior to the last launch is restrained.
