Last Updated: 2021. 07. 30

Summary:This blog concludes how users can experience active simultaneous recordings with front and back cameras at the same time after the launch of IOS 13. It includes:

Last month, Apple previewed the simultaneous multiple-cameras recording of iPhone 11 Pro by the third-party app: Filmic. You can record the front and back camera together in the highest quality (4K) with this app using the ultra-wide camera and standard camera.

What’s New

Now, with the introduction of the new API in IOS 13, simultaneous multi-cam filming is not only available for iPhone 11 but also supported by iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and the iPad Pro.

Apple stressed the feature is required renewal of hard pipelines which has been made by the iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and the new iPad Pro.

Therefore, if you are the owner of the iPhone 11 or existing iPhone XS/XR, you can take advantage of the new multi-cam app to have the best personal vlogging experience ever.

How to Do a Dual-cam Recording Simultaneously

Unfortunately, the feature isn’t supported by the camera app directly. Users need to rely on the third-party app ecosystem too, which is DualCam.

People don’t care what you do in your journey, but they care why you do and what you saw/experienced so that it all depends on what kind of story you wanna tell. Moreover, you need to elicit a series of emotions to keep viewers stay.

Furthermore, if you wanna add video transitions, additional recording, animation text and sound effect, even the business logo, FlexClip is your best choice.


The multi-cam API is a feature of IOS 13, in other words, if you wanna enjoy active simultaneous dual-cam filming, you have to update your software first and make sure you are one of 2018 flagships.

Personally, I recommend you guys use FlexClip to edit your footage or add a business logo and sound effects. It’s quite easy for a beginner.
