The iPhone 11 line hasn’t even been out a month, but Apple continues to improve its camera through iOS updates.

An iOS developer exploring iOS 13.2 beta 2 said the Camera app will allow video shooters to adjust frame rates and resolution without going into the Settings app.

Ryan Jones tweeted the discovery along with a video clip that shows how users will be able to tap from 720p to 1080p to 4k. The Camera app will also let you tap with from 24 frames per second to 30 and 60.

Users have been asking Apple to expand the native Camera app to include settings like this, DPReview’s Gannon Burgett wrote.

“This update doesn’t address the issues with the still photography interface and is only a small step in the right direction, but it’s progress nonetheless,” Burgett wrote. “Hopefully, we’ll see Apple make it easier to control Raw capture, HDR settings and more still photography settings from directly inside the Camera app.”

Bit by bit, developers are finding nuggets as they work with the beta for iOS 13.2 (see related stories below).

Along with new video capabilities, Apple added support for Deep Fusion, a computational feature that will bring greater detail to pictures by blending multiple images into a single shot.
