Lock in the subject until a yellow "depth effect" sign pop up, adjust brightness and tick the shutter when ready. Users can change the point of focus by tapping the object on the screen. Keep the phone stable, as the process may take a little longer. Even the slightest movement can ruin the effect.

According to Macworld, the telephoto lens is used in Portrait mode making the foreground appear closer and advises users to step back a little bit, observe the gap between the subject and the background.
