How to Get iPhone 6s like Retina Flash on Any iPhone With or Without Jailbreak



While announcing the latest iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, the company had showcased few new features of the latest devices. The ‘Retina Flash’ is one such feature that Apple had announced at the launch event, this works same as the front-facing flash but instead of an LED flash, it uses the display brightness for light. Though this is feature is already available on several Android devices, and the SnapChat app also uses the same technology for capturing selfies in low-light conditions.

But the Retina Flash on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is powered by an all new display chip, it makes the display three times brighter than the normal usage. The FaceTime camera on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been upgraded from 1.2MP to 5MP that can now record videos in 1080p resolution. Talking about the Retina Flash, this new feature is limited to the latest iPhone’s leaving the iPhone 6iPhone 6 PlusiPhone 5s, and other older models even after upgraded to the latest iOS 9.

Now Jailbreak any iPhone using Mac

Now, we share some information that makes your iPhone (from iPhone 6 to iPhone 4s) to capture better Selfies than ever. For Jailbreak devices, the Retina Flash works same as on the iPhone 6s and 6s plus that will be integrated into the stock Camera app. But for those whose iPhone is not jailbreak, there is an app that gives the basic functionality of capturing selfies by brightening the screen.

Retina Flash on non-Jailbreak iPhones:

  • Below the preview you can find two options – Share & Delete.

Though it can capture better images in the dark, there is no option of capturing the LivePhotos by using the Retina Flash (Get Live Photos on Any iPhone). But if you are looking for the same user interface as of iPhone 6s, then you need to jailbreak your device to get the same functionalities that also include capturing LivePhotos through front camera using Retina Flash.
