Halide updated for iPhone 11 and 11 Pro with tactile lens switcher, lens guides, and Smart RAW mode
Popular iPhone camera app, Halide, is out today with its official update to bring rich support for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The latest software release brings a tactile lens switcher, lens guides, a Smart RAW mode, and more.
Halide detailed the new update with lots of additions for iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro users in a blog post.
We released a small lightning update on iPhone 11 launch day with basic support for the new cameras. Now we’re ready to release our big update.
We engineered new features that take advantage of the powerful new hardware in the latest and greatest iPhones, starting with…
A tactile lens switcher for the iPhone 11 Pro. Here’s how Halide describes the new feature:
We’ve come up with a fast, intuitive way to switch between the Wide, Ultra Wide, and Telephoto cameras on the iPhone Pro. Of course you can just tap on the lens button in the lower right to cycle through your options, as you’ve done before. Now you can also Haptic-Touch the button to bring up your choices.
What makes our switcher really unique is that once you’re familiar with the menu, you can press-and-flick from the lens button to quickly change lenses. We think this is a fast, natural way to switch lenses, and you’ll dig how it feels.
Try swiping up from the switcher to go directly to the 2x lens, or swipe left to get that ultra-wide view on iPhone 11 Pro.
Another major new feature for iPhone 11 Pro users in Halide is lens guides.
Meet our new iPhone 11 Pro exclusive feature: Lens Guides that help compose shots. They automatically appear when you open the switcher, and provide feedback as you pick different lenses.
