The most notable feature of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max is the powerful camera system which offers a Cinematic video recording mode!

The Cinematic Mode allows you to do a background blur in videos mimicking the capabilities of an actual DSLR video. The 4K 60 FPS videos can look a lot better when shot using the cinematic mode, and many people will love to shoot videos with this new feature.
