I'm running iOS 13.5.1 on an iPhone XR. I can zoom with the back camera (in by "spreading", out by "pinching"), but is there a way to zoom with the front camera?

Go to this website and purchase the App from the App Store. Once installed you also zoom with the front camera. https://camera.plus

  • Thank you for responding to the request for details such as a link. Having that usually avoids down votes but isn’t strictly required. I will edit the side conversation as answers are best when not chatty and they address the question and not side bar comments.

  • Many thanks for this answer, @JanD. But can you post a link confirming that this program does indeed allow front zoom on the XR. I couldn't find that stated at the site you linked to, unless it was implied in jargon I didn't understand. Thanks again for your help. I should add that I'd welcome other answers too. Digital zoom seems quite a simple thing, so there may be some free programs out there that provide this function.

With the app Camera+ you can zoom the front camera.

  • It’s helpful if you provide a link to the app and maybe even a description of how it can solve the problem
