Apple has shared a new Behind the Scenes video to YouTube, this time giving us a look at how easily some cinematic effects can be created using little more than an iPhone.

Throughout the 3:30 video, Apple's filmmakers show us how to replicate some big-budget filming techniques using an iPhone and some surprisingly mundane accessories — including a bike wheel and painter's tape.

Apple shows us how to use the ultra wide camera to create stunning depth effects before moving onto a DIY crane effect that has to be seen to be believed. Finally, we see how lighting can be used to create a look that you might not believe until you see it. It looks like Apple is using its latest iPhone 12 devices to capture the footage, but the same methods will largely work for other iPhones, too.

All of this will work with the upcoming iPhone 13 of course, but you don't have to wait until then to try it out. There are some great iPhone deals to be had on existing devices right now, too.
