Focos is a big step into the future of computational photography and light-field camera, bringing DSLR-like photography to your dual-camera iPhone and iPad Pro, with beautiful bokeh effects usually achievable only with professional large aperture cameras. With the technology of computational photography, you can make unlimited changes to your photos, focus after the fact, change the aperture repeatedly, and add multiple lights in 3D space, exceeding the limits of any editing tools you’ve known before. The creative potential unleashed by Focos is endless.

- Take photos with shallow depth of field, without manually painting or making selections.
- True 3D imaging.
- Simulate large apertures to create real bokeh effects normally only possible with DSLR cameras and expensive lenses.
- Import existing portrait photos and customize the bokeh effect.
- Re-focus portrait photos that have already been taken, with a simple tap.
- Choose from various simulated aperture diaphragms to generate different bokeh spot effects.
- Professional options to simulate lens characteristics, such as creamy, bilinear, swirly, and reflex effects, and more.
- Visualize the depth of areas within your portrait photos in a 3D view, and intuitively add depth filters.
- Add multiple lights in a 3D space, and adjust the color, brightness and so on for each light.
- It is possible to patch the depth map precisely on iPad with Apple Pencil.
- Intuitive and easy to use, with built-in video tutorials.
- An essential tool for iPad Pro, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Taking portrait photos is not possible on devices that lack dual cameras. It is therefore recommended that Focos is used on devices with dual cameras.
All sample photos in screenshots and video previews were shot on an iPhone 7 Plus.

Rarely do I leave reviews but...

Ok I usually don’t do this but I have to at this point. I’ve been taking/editing photos for a long time now. Over the years I’ve gained a laundry list of editing apps both paid and free. But of all the apps I’ve accumulated, Focos is by far the best. I started out just using the free version which has quite a few features itself but quickly realized that this developer knows what they’re doing and opted for a lifetime subscription. It’s obvious that the dev understands photography and how to make an awesome app. In many modes it creates a 3D map of your photo, allowing you to make edits to multiple separate layers individually. Along with these practical editing options is also a highly effective and well designed app that knows how to execute the operations you give it. I cannot express how impressive this app is. All I can say is this: I can cancel my subscription to Adobe now.

Great app for next level iPhone photos


Continuous mode is the bomb. I shoot a lot of pics with it for work and we do a lot of live action shots. Love how I can control what to focus on and blur. It does lag though, a few times I’ve had to force it to shut down just so I don’t miss an opportunity at a shot.

A few things I would love on the app is to have the ability to easily switch between pictures when in the editing screen instead of tapping the back arrow then searching for the next image and selecting it. Takes too long.

In addition, would love to have folder organization for the pictures already taken or have the pictures from the iPhone Favorite folder distinguished between other images that aren’t favorited. You know how Favorited images in the All Photos folder on iphones have a heart symbol? That’s what I want within the app. Right now it’s cumbersome when having to comb through the portrait images in the app to find the same ones I’ve already favorited on my iphone.

Not sure if this is even possible, would love to have multiple focus and blur points in an image that can be fully adjustable. Sometimes there’s weird blurring and focusing on an image that can’t be fixed via the settings so it looks off and edited.

All in all, great job with the app. Lifetime unlimited access price is worth it and a steal.

Thanks for your long review. New version with patch is on the way, and it allows you to edit the depth map with brush tool, so you can fix the error edge manually. Thank you.
