Capture content outside the camera frame on iPhone
On iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, the camera system displays and captures content outside of the frame. You can capture this content when you take a photo or video to make edits later in the Photos app. Camera also uses content outside the frame to automatically improve the composition of your photos and QuickTake videos.
Edit photos and videos with content outside the frame
When Capture Outside the Frame is turned on in Settings , content captured outside the frame appears when you use the crop, straighten, and perspective tools to make edits in the Photos app.
To capture content outside the frame when you take photos, go to Settings > Camera, then turn on Photos Capture Outside the Frame.
When you record QuickTake videos, Camera automatically captures content outside the frame. To turn off, go to Settings > Camera, then turn off Videos Capture Outside the Frame.
Note: If you don’t use the content captured outside the frame to make edits, it will be deleted after 30 days.
Adjust composition with content outside the frame
Camera uses content captured outside the frame to automatically adjust a photo or a QuickTake video and improve the composition. A blue Auto badge appears in the top-right corner when an automatic adjustment is applied.
To turn off automatic adjustments, go to Settings > Camera, then turn off Auto Apply Adjustments.
