As noted by Aaron Zollo over at Zollotech, in his latest video Zollo explains that iOS 15.2 beta 2 now includes a very small flower icon in the camera app that will appear whenever you go close up to a subject to take a macro photo. Tapping the icon simply toggle’s macro on and off, as shown below:

The new lens design, autofocus capability for the first time in the Ultra Wide on iPhone, and advanced software also unlock something never before possible on iPhone: macro photography.
