Apple has officially announced the latest iPhones and confirmed that, yes, there is a huge squirrel-shaped camera bubble on the back of each of these new phones. On the flagship iPhone Pro models, this includes three separate cameras & # 39; s and there are two on the iPhone 11.
Each camera has its own purpose and you want to use them for different photo scenarios.
- 12MP normal camera | 26 mm f / 1.8 | Optical image stabilization: The standard iPhone camera has been upgraded with a new night mode that should be able to compete better with Night Sight on Google's Pixel smartphones in terms of low-light performance. Apple has also improved image processing to retain more highlights and details in every shot.
- 12MP ultra wide camera | 13 mm f / 2.4 | Field of view of 120 degrees: Instead of following its own tradition with a portrait lens, Apple has made the somewhat surprising decision to opt for an ultra-wide camera that allows iPhone 11 owners to capture more of their surroundings in every photo. The viewfinder of the camera app shows you what the main camera sees and an example of what would be in the ultra-wide image.
Front camera: 12MP TrueDepth camera with slo-mo video and 4K60 recording: Apple's selfie camera can now take pictures with a wider angle when it is turned to landscape. The company also adds slow-motion video recordings.

Apple switched to a system with two cameras & # 39; s, starting with the iPhone 7 Plus, and added a telephoto / portrait lens with a better perspective to complement the standard angle camera. The portrait lens remained exclusive to Plus models until the iPhone X in 2017. Since then, the X, XS and XS Max all have two cameras. The iPhone XR is stuck with just one.
