During the last Apple event on September 10th we could see how the brand new iPhone was able to record with two cameras simultaneously. Not natively but through applications like Filmic Pro, which we saw running on an iPhone 11 Pro. However, this is not really exclusive to the ‘Pro’ terminals. The iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone XR and even the 2018 iPad Pro are able to make these multi-camera recordings thanks to iOS 13.
The new iPhone 11 Pro is very ‘pro’ as its name indicates. One of the most striking differences we find between these terminals and its little brother, the iPhone 11, lies in the rear camera. The triple lens incorporated in these devices make the functions of wide angle camera, ultra wide angle camera and the added telephoto camera which is the only one that does not incorporate the iPhone 11.
In the Apple keynote we could see multiple videos and visual and explained information by the company itself. Among all this information we witnessed how the application Filmic Pro is able to make recordings with both rear and front cameras , all from an iPhone 11 Pro. Now from some media like 9to5Mac we can see that this capability is not exclusive to the ‘Pro’ models , but also the iPhone 11 may be able to do it and even earlier iPhones like the XS and XR . Mention also the 2018 iPad Pro , which will also be able to do these recordings.

As seen at WWDC 2019, a new API has been added to iOS 13 to allow developers to include simultaneous back and front camera recording. However, all this under the consideration of performance and energy costs that this functionality implies on an iPhone.
It should also be noted that the iPhone 11 Pro could use its triple rear lens for recording, which will make a clear difference to the dual camera on the iPhone 11 and the iPhone XS and XS Max. This difference will become even more apparent with the single lens of the iPhone XR and iPad Pro 2018. However, in the end the result will be positive in all of them, or at least it seems that way considering the good recording quality that this and previous generation iPhones boast.

At the moment not many developers have been encouraged to make applications that allow these multi-camera recordings, but it is possible that in the coming months we could see how the App Store receives new applications capable of doing so. Without a doubt, this is great news for those who use the iPhone as a video camera , whether professionally or not, and do not want to be forced to buy the most premium terminal that Apple has at the moment.
