Apple just released the iOS 17.2 update, which switches on the new Spatial Video capture option for iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max phones. And I'm here to tell you to use the feature a lot more than you'd think – whether you have any plans for an Apple Vision Pro in your future or not.
Remember: the future of your family videos is in so many ways for future generations. How much do we wish we had more photos and footage of our own ancestors? We cling to the handful we have from the first half of the 20th Century.
We now have the chance to make videos that add depth and a truer sense of 'being there' than ever. Don't ignore it as something that might be useful down the track. Capture the now so we build a better opportunity to look back on today tomorrow.
All reports suggest that we should do the same for landscape photography too. Apple Vision Pro turns landscapes into immersive photos that wrap around us. It's a powerful way to take yourself back to a time and place. Or for your great grandkids to go see where you were in their far distant past.
Embrace these opportunities. If you have the technology, use it.
