With the release of the iPhone 7 Plus, a campaign at Apple called #ShotoniPhone began to take over TV commercials. Photos from around the world utilizing features like Portrait Mode and Panorama highlighted the best of what the iPhone could offer.
Apple has never been a huge user of social media, but today the company debuted its presence on Instagram official with a few posts highlighting photographs that were #ShotoniPhone.

#ShotoniPhone by… – 1. Maurice H. @bloomandplume “If people like photos of flowers and people like photos of me, why not just put the two together?” – 2. RJ P. @rockadeezy “The landing is the hard part. If I really want to be horizontal I land on all fours. Like a cat. But if the ground’s too hot, or it’s hard terrain I’ll land on my feet.” – 3. Jeryl T. @j9ryl “Just because I’m colorblind doesn’t make photography a guessing game. There’s always a direction I want to go. A mood I want to create.” – 4. Britainy W. @lanadeathray “Owls are kinda like the ninjas of the bird world. Like, that mouse never saw it coming.” – 5. Koci H. @koci “I can walk outside, tap a piece of glass, and suddenly I’ve captured something. With another tap, I can share it with the entire world. If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is.”
#ShotoniPhone by… – 1. Mirabai M. @mirafilm “Beekeeping is incredibly addictive. Once you start, it’s very hard to stop. I think I’ll probably be a beekeeper for the rest of my life.” – 2. Jeremy S. @jeremysnell “I do show people the photos I take of them. A lot of these people have never really had their picture taken before, so this is really special to them. I think it opens people up in a new way, when they are able to see themselves in an image.” – 3. Daniil S. @daniil “I want to show the backstage – we’re surrounded by so much beauty that we take for granted. For us it’s so common. We don’t see the beauty anymore.” – 4. Marcelo N. @marcelonava “I like to walk, exploring a city, knowing every little space within the world.” – 5. Dave S. @davesandford “An adrenaline rush? Quite the opposite actually. I find swimming with sharks to be very peaceful.”
From time lapses to portraits and even action shots of the environment, Apple made sure to highlight some of the best iPhone features and will continue to do so on its new account.
With smartphones blurring the line between point-and-shoot and DSLRs, Apple is proving to the world you don’t have to be a professional photographer to take great shots. And with new apps and readily available software, we’re able to see photography like never before.
If you’ve got any cool photos of your own, tag us in them using #KingsOfContent so we can check them out!
