Watershot 1-2-3 Checklist for iPhone Setup

Posted in News, on June 24, 2016

Downloaded the Watershot App and still running into issues, please take a moment to read and follow the Watershot 1-2-3 Checklist to assist with the proper iPhone setup.

 

***iPhone 6 Plus or 6S Plus***

  1. Open your iPhone and go into your iPhone Settings > Display & Brightness > and make sure your iPhone is in Standard Mode not Zoom Mode.  Zoom Mode is problematic and this is what causes the buttons to change location on the screen and not align with the Camera Housing Buttons.
  2. Go into your iPhone Settings and click on Privacy, now click on Camera. Make sure the Watershot app has access to the Camera. Now check Microphone, and Photos to make sure the Watershot app has access to them as well.  If that doesn't work, then go back to Settings and scroll down to the Watershot app and click on it.  Check to make sure that the Watershot app has access to Photos, Microphone, and Camera.
  3. As a friendly reminder, you are now able to use the Apple Camera with the Watershot Pro Housing for the iPhone 6 Plus and 6S Plus. You can use the regular camera app on the iPhone, and switch between all of the different picture modes.

- Please note that you do not have an option to change the Housing Type in the Open Mode Menu, as there is only a single button configuration for the iPhone 6 Plus and 6S Plus.

 

***iPhone 6 and 6S***

  1. Open your iPhone and go into your iPhone Settings > Display & Brightness > and make sure your iPhone is in Standard Mode not Zoom Mode.  Zoom Mode is problematic and this is what causes the buttons to change location on the screen and not align with the Camera Housing Buttons.
  2. Go into your iPhone Settings and click on Privacy, now click on Camera. Make sure the Watershot app has access to the Camera.

  3. Now open the Watershot App, and click on the Watershot Logo in the upper left hand corner. The Open Mode menu should open now. Click on Housing Type, and chose either the Standard Housing (5 buttons if you count the home button) or the Pro 6 Housing (6 buttons if you count the home button) based on the Watershot Housing you are using.

- As a friendly reminder, you are now able to use the Apple Camera with the NEW Watershot Pro Housing for the iPhone 6 and 6S.  You can now use the regular camera app on the iPhone, and switch between all of the different picture modes.
