This secret iPhone trick is a super-useful tribute to Apple’s forgotten digital camera

The iPhone 15 Pro and its rumored periscope zoom is an exciting prospect for photographers, but equally satisfying (and much cheaper) is discovering a new camera trick on your current iPhone. Particularly when that hidden feature is both a useful time-saver and named after a long-forgotten Apple gadget.

Okay, the QuickTake feature on your iPhone (which first arrived on iOS 13) has been around for a few years now, but it’s also easily missed. It’s a bit like another hidden iOS trick that I discovered recently, which turns your iPhone’s spacebar into trackpad whenever you hold it down. You’re welcome.
