One of the latest bugs that have been discovered in Apple’s mobile ecosystem is actually useful and allows you to enable unlimited zooming in iOS Photos app.
The default capabilities of the zoom function enable us to enlarge a particular area of a photo, but only to a certain point, after which the image will be automatically returned to is original size.
As usual, Apple really loves to limit the things we can do on your iPhones and iPads, for our own sake, but these limitations are somewhat annoying for heavy smartphone users that enjoy making the most out of their devices.
iOSJailbreakPro found this awesome trick, you can use to enable infinite zoom for any photos on your iOS device.
How to enable unlimited zooming in iOS Photos app on your iPhone or iPad
Right now, the exploit is confirmed to work on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus running iOS 9.3.2 but users have tested it on older iOS 9 versions and iPhone models, and it seems to work there as well. With that said, here’s what you need to do if you want to enable unlimited zooming in iOS Photos app.
Open the Photos app, and select an image you want to zoom in on. Tap on Edit in the upper right corner of the screen.
Then, tap on the crop icon and select the Rotate option and rotate the photo 90° or 270°. The bug works only for one of these two rotation degrees.
Hit Done and pinch to zoom in on the image as usual, except this time you will be able to zoom in as far as you want.
If you swipe to another photo, or exit the Photos app and return to view any image, the system-imposed zoom limit returns. In other words, you will need to open the photo, edit, crop and rotate it each time you want to zoom in on it without limitations.
Note: You can also zoom in on the photo in its original placement by rotating it once, then returning to edit mode where you will need to rotate it three more times. This will return the photo to its original orientation, and activate the bug that offers unlimited zooming.
