We will be detailing how to use the iPhone Magnifying glass Feature that even most iPhone users do not know the phone has. Some iPhone users that do know that the phone has this feature, are not even interested in using it. Either way we’ll be letting you know how to go about it when the need for it arises.

Everyday more than 6 smartphones are released globally and although these phones have some pretty nice and amazing specifications. Most of the time, there is still a lot these phones can do that we do not know about. And why is that ?

iPhone magnifying Glass Feature

This is simply because the smartphone makers do not feel that particular feature is enough to draw people’s attention to the phone. Or maybe there are just other better features that people should know about first. Before getting the device and finding out about the rest.

For example, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 ships with a snapdragon 625 which supports quick charge but Xiaomi never mentioned it. In fact, the charger that comes with it in the box would not fast charge the device. You will have to get a fast charger that also supports quick charge in other to enjoy this feature.

Till this day there is a debate online whether the xiaomi redmi note 5 supports quick charge or not. But be rest assured that it does.

Specifications like RAM, Battery, Screen Size, Camera Quality and what version of Android OS the device is running are always the frontrunner. These are mostly the specifications phone manufacturers are always quick to put out there in public.

Only the tech inclined ones go a step further by inquiring to know about the Chipset manufacturers version, Pixel per inch density and a lot of other in depth features most people won’t normally know.

For example, I’ll rather go with a snapdragon Chipset than the MediaTek counterpart. But if the snapdragon is a little old then I’ll stick with the latest Mediatek. I could go into reasons why i made those choices but I’ll be digressing so let get back to it.

I know you must be thinking why you would want to know about all these before buying a device. This is why i will implore you to try and learn these things. So you’ll get the best value for your money and not over pay or waste your hard earned money on some low-end crappy device.

Some smartphone users use their device for more than a year without even knowing or fully utilizing up to 50% of what their Smartphone can really do.

One of those things is the iPhone magnifying glass feature. This feature makes use of the iPhone camera to enlarge anything you point using the phone’s camera. Helping you see it more clearer.

The magnifying glass can be used to zoom in on object that too tiny for the eyes to see. This can be achieved using the slide in it to increase or decrease the level of magnification. You can also turn the flashlight through the app to help you at night.
