Halide is an award-winning camera app listed in Macworld's "Must Have Apps," The Verge's "Apps We Love," and picked by The Sweet Setup as "Best Third-Party Camera App for iPhone."

With high-end tools, and a beautiful UI designed from scratch for the latest iPhones, Halide is your go-to camera when you want to really take a photo rather than a quick snapshot.

Halide’s professional tools include focus peaking, histograms, adaptive level grid, manual depth capture, and RAW support on supported phones.* Customize controls to adapt the app to your needs. Features: - Beautiful, intuitive gesture-based interface - An intuitive and fast lens switcher designed especially for iPhone 11 Pro - On iPhone X and later, a custom-designed UI that is completely usable with one hand - Manual Depth Capture: Take portraits of pets and objects on iPhone XR - Focus peaking and powerful manual focus* - Full manual controls including shutter speed, ISO and white balance - Live histograms for perfect exposure* - Captures RAW, TIFF, HEIC or JPG for the best quality shots* - Grid overlay with built-in level - Quick-review of your last few shots - Intelligent automatic and manual mode *Compatibility: The Ultra Wide camera on iPhone 11 and 11 Pro does not support RAW or manual focus. Histograms require iPhone 6 or later. (6, 6S, 7, 8, X, XS, XR, SE, 11, 11 Pro) RAW requires iPhone 6S or later. (6S, 7, 8, X, XS, XR, SE, 11, 11 Pro) Depth Capture requires iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, X, XS, XR, 11, 11 Pro.



  • Smooth and intuitive. Gives my Max pro wings!

    By Thlonius
    That’s why I like it.
  • UX needs work

    By 1mistherealbmw
    The app genuinely needs some work to make its more useful features well, used. For point and click the app works but then so does the stock app too! Why can’t I launch the camera roll directly like in the stock app to do lightweight editing?
  • Issue with shutter speed dial.

    By girlone/snez
    The shutter speed dial needs to be redesigned. I’m surprised it’s not more intuitive and easier to adjust. I have a iPhone 6s, it’s a yellow line on the side of the screen that I would have to scroll up and down with. It barely works for me.
  • Just downloaded, won’t even take a depth photo

  • Good app just few a workflow issues

    By thesnowys
    App works great. The only issue is navigating it is not always apparent how to do task like adding depth or switching to photo album etc...
  • iPhone 11 Pro and Halide app

    By jef3035
    Halide is a great app for phone photographers. I bought my iPhone 11 Pro with the intention of not having to buy a separate point and shoot (P&S) camera. However, I was a bit disappointed to find out that the stock camera app did provide features I wanted such as Raw. Halide provides many features that allows me use the features of my iPhone in photography. Really enjoying and learning much about Halide app
  • Useless

    By applefan0699
    Can’t pinch and zoom, no help button, complete waste of money
  • Great Photo App

    By Spinnin' Wheeler
    Especially like that you can use the front camera too!
  • Great for Photographers who need more control of your iPhone camera

    By Jendjksdjfjdncj
    Absolutely amazing for controlling all aspects of my built in camera and really allows me to compose a beautiful shot using my iPhone
  • Latest update can’t take depth pics

    By djshy
    I keep receiving the error taking photo message when using the depth feature in my iPhone XR. Doesn’t matter what I’m taking a picture of - depth feature is inoperable.
