Enable Portrait Lighting for iPhone 7 plus

With the release of iPhone X and iPhones 8 + Apple has released a new camera feature called Potrait Lighting. Portrait Lighting Mode uses depth to create a blurred background effect on shots and to create stunning lighting effects. But the newly added Portrait Mode lighting effects are exclusive to the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. In this post I’m going to show you how to enable it on iPhone 7 plus which also have dual camera.


You will need an iPhone 7 plus on iOS version 11.x to 11.1.2. We will jailbreak our device to enable this feature. You will also need Electra and Filza. Read this article to install Electra and Jailbreak your device. Watch this video to install filza.
