Enabling Lock Lens Functionality

Using the iPhone XS Max, have you ever experience a situation where the video would flicker as you zoom. This is because the iPhone XS Max is switching between the two lenses to get the best possible picture.

Apple has set up a way to avoid this by enabling the "lock camera lens settings"

i Phone Dual Lens

Setting up the Lock Lens settings

  • Go to Settings
  • Select Camera
  • Select Record Video
  • Click on the switch where it says Lock Camera

What Happens When enabled

When you have the Lock Camera enable the iPhone won't switch lens when you zoom in during the recording. You'll get a nice smooth zoom.

These settings have no impact when you zoom in to take pictures or when you set up the video before recording. The "Lock Camera" will not prevent you from using the Telephoto lens.

Note this only effects the Camera app. This has no effect on ProCam, Camera+ 2, or ProCamera apps.
