New Halide Mark II Now Allows Older Models Have iPhone 13's Popular Macro Mode Camera Feature


Halide’s new Mark II Pro Camera app version now allows Apple consumers with old iPhone smartphones to take close-up images comparable to photos taken by iPhone 13. 

This simply means that the new third-party camera application now offers features similar to Apple’s Macro Mode, which is still exclusive to its iPhone 13 lineup.

Halide’s innovation would surely excite the consumers of the giant smartphone maker, especially those who love photography but don’t have the budget to purchase the latest models. But, it still has some limitations when it comes to compatibility. 

As of the moment, the Halide Mark II Pro Camera application is only compatible with iPhone models that have the so-called Neural Engine. Since this is the case, the new version of the camera app can only be accessed by consumers owning iPhone 8 and newer models. 

Halide MarK II Pro Camera’s Update

According to MacRumors’ latest report, Halide’s own version of Macro Mode would check which one of your iPhone’s camera lenses can capture the closest photos. It will ensure that this camera can offer the most HD close-up image.

Once it identifies the best camera lens of your Apple device, it would then offer ultra-precise focus control down to the sub-millimeter. This would ensure that your smartphone’s captured close-up photos are comparable to those offered by the newest iPhone 13 models. 

After that, Halide Mark II Pro Camera will integrate an artificial intelligence image enhancer to make your images more HD or sharp. Owners with old iPhones are not the only Apple consumers that can take advantage of the new app. 

The third-party camera application provider also stated that its new app also works with iPhone 13. The new Mark II Pro Camera can stack up with your device’s own Macro Mode feature, allowing you to have sharper close-up photos.  

What You Need To Know About Halide Mark II 

If you want to install the new version of Halide’s popular camera app, all you need to do is visit the official Apple Store. 

But, you need to know that Halide Mark II Pro Camera is not free.

“Please note Halide is not free. We offer a 7-day free trial for annual memberships. Don’t like subscriptions? You can also buy the app outright with a single in-app purchase,” said the company via its official Apple Store statement. 

However, those who own the predecessor of Halide Mark II can upgrade their app for free.
