Nice pic of your rainshower fruit tree. It's the distance you are creating - the depth of field- by moving close/away to/from the object that is causing the background blurry effect. I don't think ISO has anything to do with it. I think if you use a camera that gives you control over aperture (adjusting depth of field) and possibly a better sensor than your phone camera, you can achieve this much easily.

Again, at this point, my day 1 enthusiasm is limited to theory and not from practice :p

Let's say it's not the tree you are shooting but you want a pic of a person while the background blurs. I don't think there is an easy way to achieve that effect without a camera with manual controls. You are not gonna go really close to that person are you?
Life is short. Have an affair.
