You just picked up your iPhone 5 or updated to iOS 6, here's how to use some of the best features (and a few features you may not know). Be sure to go all the way to the end for a bonus that I have just discovered.
It's not obvious how to shoot a panorama in iOS 6 or on iPhone 5. Open the Camera app. (First time users: You can open the camera in the lock screen without unlocking phone by swiping up on the camera icon.) With the camera app open, tap on the "options button." You'll see the Panorama button, tap it. To shoot the panorama, tap the camera button and move your phone from left to right in an even pace. Take as many as panorama photos as you like and tap "done."
