Just like every other device, iPhone X comes with its own set of features, such as portrait lighting, that are exclusive to it. Here’s how you can enable portrait lighting on your iPhone 7 plus.

How Portrait Lighting Enabler works
Developers are beginning to port iPhone X features to older devices, thanks to Coolstar. Here’s a new tweak that ports yet another iPhone X feature.
As its name suggests, Portrait Lighting Enabler Cydia tweak unlocks the iPhone X-exclusive Portrait Lighting feature. It is developed by tweak developer, OverNightmare.
For those who don’t how the portrait mode works on modern devices, here’s a video that explains it in detail.
Unsurprisingly, the stock feature works better than a tweak. Portrait mode on iPhone X and iPhone 8/8+ are way snappier than that on iPhone 7 plus. Other than that, there’s absolutely no difference whatsoever in terms of the photo quality.
Can portrait lighting be ported to older iPhone models?
Unfortunately, this tweak can only support iPhone 7 plus and no other iPhone model will be supported in the future.
Other devices such as iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s plus are incompatible because they lack dual rear-cameras.
Dual rear-cameras are a prerequisite for enabling Portrait mode. Therefore, this feature is only available for the following devices –
- iPhone 7 plus
- iPhone 8 plus
- iPhone X
Download Portrait Lighting Enabler
This is a solid tweak for all iPhone 7 plus owners. Developers have neglected this device for quite a long time so it’s your time to rise and shine. Highly recommended.
Although this tweak works flawlessly, it does have one minor bug. If you click a photo in natural lighting conditions or the default portrait mode, you can’t adjust the Portrait Lighting.
Portrait Lighting Enabler is available for download as a ZIP archive here. It is compatible only with iPhone 7 plus running iOS 11.
