If you've read about the best camera on the phone, Apple's phones might not feature in the top three. Google's Pixel 3 and Huawei's duo of P30's Pro and Mate 20 Pro ruled the charts with their versatile camera setups, and the ability to take stunning pictures in low light.
- Rear camera: 12-megapixel wide sensor with f /1.8 aperture + 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with f / 2.4 aperture, 120 ° field of view
- 12.5-megapixel true depth sensor with f / 2.2 aperture
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max:  12-megapixel wide sensor with f / 1.8 aperture + 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with f / 2.4 aperture, 120 ° field of view + 12 -megapixel telephotos sensor with f / 2.0 aperture
With Apple switching to a dual-camera system on the iPhone 11 – and Google's upcoming Pixel 4 wants to be a second camera – the era of the single-camera flagship is pretty much over. And I'm so glad Apple chose to include an ultra-wide-angle sensor instead of a telephoto sensor as the second camera, because it allows for a field of view and a chance to create more dramatic shots. Sure, optical zoom is nice, but a wide-angle snapper is better.
One major change the company has brought the new night mode. It will automatically kick in when it detects the low-light conditions in your frame, and snap in a bright picture as shown in the example below.
The company says it has improved its smartHDR algorithm to capture more "natural-looking" images with better highlights and shadow details. Apple has also improved its portrait mode, so it now detects objects and pets just as well as it does humans.
With the new A13 Bionic chip, Apple is bringing Deep Fusion. Using the processor's neural engine, it's designed to perform pixel-by-pixel processing to improve texture, detail, and noise reduction. The company says the Fusion will be released later in the fall of the year.
The Pro and Max versions of the new iPhone will feature a telephoto sensor along with wide and ultra-wide sensors. All three cameras can share information with each other, resulting in better images. For instance, the telephoto sensor can use the other two sensors to create a better depth effect.
The iPhone maker has brought a lot of changes to video capture as well. Both ultra-wide and wide cameras now support footage in 4K with extended dynamic range and cinematic stabilization (Apple's term for electronic stabilization). Apple's demo video shot with the new iPhones looking pretty sick.
Apple's made it easier to switch between different cameras to zoom in and out seamlessly, as you compose your shot. Plus, you can use audio zoom – just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 – to focus on a specific area for voice recording. The company is also capable of delivering third-party video apps to shoot multi-camera videos in real time.
Overall, the new iPhones represent a significant step in the world of Android flagships.
