Another season, another iPhone. And it seems this year, Apple has doubled down on its camera features, making it the most powerful one yet. The iPhone 7 Plus has the standard, wide-angle, 28mm-equivalent lens, plus another one—a 56mm equivalent, ideal for beauty close-ups. Because of this new, powerful camera, Instagram is also rolling out some amazing iPhone 7-specific features. Here is what you have to look forward to.
The iPhone 7 Plus features a telephoto zoom lens, usable by dragging a finger up and down in Instagram. You can already zoom on Instagram, but now you can zoom in Instagram Stories as well, great for adding a dimension of storytelling to videos.
In order to properly take advantage of the iPhone 7 camera sensor’s wide-gamut color detection, Instagram is redoing all their filters. The app is promising more vibrant hues and a broader range of filters.
3D Touch—when you hard press the iPhone to make it do a specific task, will let you immediately launch or post to Stories. Yes, Instagram is making it even easier for you to post something by mistake.
You used to have to shoot a Boomerang in the app and then save it and upload it to Instagram. Now, using the Live Photos API, iPhone Live photos can instantly be converted into Instagram Boomerang back-and-forth GIFs. Cute!
