Apple recently rolled out iOS 12 to users and as a major OS upgrade for its iOS-based devices brought along numerous number of features to take advantage of Apple’s underlying hardware. Together with those features are the obvious camera improvements for the iPhone X and even more so with the latest iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

But Apple still has a lot going on, as discovered by beta testers on the latest iOS 12.1 beta software, users under the beta program found one particular addition to the camera app which enable depth control while taking a photo. The latest stable version of the iOS 12 also have a similar feature to this but that’s only possible after the photo is taken.

Apple already confirmed that it added a manual slider control directly into the camera app so users can preview the effect before the photo is taken. The feature is expected to become available in the future iOS 12 update as it is already seen working smoothly in the beta.

The next stable update of the OS is yet to be announced but given how well the feature performs even at its beta stage, it is expected to become available before the end of the year together with other improvements that Apple is set to roll out to users.
