A larger sensor means less noise and faster shutter speeds, increasing the iPhone’s performance in low-light conditions. The primary wide-angle camera on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have a f/1.5 aperture, which Apple says will perform 2.2x when compared to the iPhone 12 Pro in low-light conditions.
Night Mode helps compensate for unideal lighting situations, and the feature is beefed up on the iPhone 13 thanks to that larger sensor that brings in 47% more light, faster capture speeds and improvements to optical image stabilization. A next-gen LiDAR doesn’t hurt either. It might be the year to jump into astrophotography.
These style settings will capture certain elements like contrast or vibrancy with increased focus while leaving things like skin tones alone for great portraiture using algorithms.
The feature will have four default styles to choose from, which you can fine-tune further by adjusting tone and warmth. These settings can be saved to achieve a consistent look across your photos, no matter what you’re shooting.
In Cinematic Mode, the iPhone will be able to capture scenes with multiple subjects with more depth, bringing multiple people into focus automatically without you having to tap your screen to adjust mid-filming. The focus can be changed during and after capture — but the machine learning algorithms have been trained on classic cinematography and Apple expects you’ll like its automatic edits.
