News / Mobile phones AFVideo brings video autofocus to the iPhone 5s and older models [Jailbreak Tweak]

Among the new features introduced in the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus is video autofocus which many users have been craving for. Unluckily, the older models of the iPhone such as the iPhone 5s and earlier were left behind as the feature is exclusively available for the latest iPhone models only.

If you own an older model of the iPhone and would like to get video autofocus on your device, you’ll be glad to find out about a new jailbreak tweak known as AFVideo which brings the feature to older iPhone models running iOS 8.

At first glance, I thought that the tweak is same like a few other packages on Cydia which make false claims. After giving it a try on my iPhone 5s, I can say that I was quite impressed with its performance. The tweak perfectly ports the new video autofocus feature to older models of iPhone. In fact, it works quite similar to the video autofocus of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, just a little slower.

Once you install AFVideo, there are no settings to configure. You can simply launch the Camera app on your iPhone and start recording better quality videos with autofocus enabled.

If you currently own an older model of iPhone and use it frequently to record videos on the go, you should definitely give this tweak a try if you want to capture better quality videos. The tweak does its job perfectly and doesn’t create any glitches or issues during recording.

AFVideo can be installed for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. It works on both iOS 7 and iOS 8 devices and the developer claims that it should work on iOS 5 and iOS 6 as well.

What do you think of AFVideo? After installing the tweak, did you notice a change while recording a video on your iPhone? Let us know the comment section below.
