iOS 10.2 lets you preserve your settings in Camera app so you can pick up right where you left off. Here’s how you can use it.
iOS 10.2 is out, and you can download the final iPSW files from here. You will see a lot of improvements and features in iOS 10.2 final. One of the feature we will discuss is you can preserve your settings in Camera app that means you can shoot where you left off ( with same settings and mode ). Here’s how you can use it.
How To Preserve you last used Camera app settings in iOS 10.2
You are out taking photos and recording videos. And every time you are done with a snap or clip, you lock your iPhone. But every time you wake it and launch the Camera app again, you have to go through a little nuisance. That nuisance is the Camera app defaulting itself back to the ‘Photo’ mode, forcing you to scramble to the last used mode, may that be Video, Pano, Time-lapse, Square etc. But thanks to iOS 10.2, the Camera app can retain your last used mode, allowing you to pick up right where you left off.
Want to get started with the feature? Here’s how you can.
1. Launch the Settings app.
2. Scroll down and tap on Photos & Camera.
3. Now tap Preserve Settings.
4. There are three toggles here outlining which does what. Turn on the toggles as necessary and then close the Settings app.
5. Now launch the Camera app and switch to Video mode. Close the app and then launch Camera app again. You’re back in Video. How cool is that?
Hopefully, with this new features in iOS 10.2, those days of annoyance will be long gone. And if, for some reason, you don’t feel like using the new Preserve Settings feature, you can always turn it off and go back to how things were.
