with a neural engine, it can sort through all of these images,
taking the best aspects of each one and combining them into

FEATURE IS NIGHT
IMPROVES PHOTOS IN
MENTS BOTH IN AND
OUT OF DOORS.”
A long-awaited feature is Night Mode, which improves
photos in low-light environments both in and out of doors.
This feature turns on automatically as needed and allows your
camera to take multiple, stabilized shots. These images are
then aligned to pull details from shadowed areas, reduce exposure in lighted areas, and correct for movement, creating a
balanced image with natural-looking colors.
A fun new feature I’d be remiss not to mention is the
slofie, at least so far. The front-facing camera now has a 12
MP TrueDepth camera that can film at 120 fps. This allows for
slow-motion selfies, which are sure to become a social media
trend almost immediately.
Video quality is also better than ever with the iPhone 11; 4K
at 60 fps. The new ultra-wide camera works the same way for
video as it does for still photos, capturing more of the scene
you’re shooting than ever before. As an added bonus, the new
Quick Take feature allows users to switch to video by holding
the shutter, then swiping right while in photo mode.
THE IPHONE 11 PRO
The iPhone 11 Pro has a smaller display size but higher display quality than the iPhone 11. All the camera features included
in the iPhone 11 are present in the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max,
plus several more that are made possible by a third telephoto
camera lens. The Pro’s three-camera combination allows for
more versatile and higher-quality photography than ever before,
including improved Portrait mode, and telephoto, wide, and
ultra-wide options in regular shots.

IPHONE 11 PRO MAX
CHECKS ALL THE
While all three of 2019’s iPhones are touted as having “the
highest video quality ever in a smartphone,” the Pro and Pro
Max are able to go above and beyond the iPhone 11 due to
the extra features enabled by its telephoto lens.
The iPhone 11 Pro is perfect for photographers, gamers,
and video enthusiasts who insist on the highest display quality possible. These users may require a lot of storage, but
won’t miss the larger display and better battery life of the Pro
THE IPHONE 11 PRO MAX
Now for Apple’s highest-priced, largest iPhone of the year,
the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Of course, a top-of-the-line iPhone is
a status symbol, and some will invest in the Pro Max for that
reason alone. For gamers, photographers, and videographers
who require maximum storage, battery life, screen size, and
display quality, the iPhone 11 Pro Max checks all the boxes.
