New Camera Experience Powered by A15 Bionic

It also features an all-new camera system powered by A15 Bionic, with a 12MP f/1.8 aperture wide camera that offers incredible computational photography benefits, including Photographic Styles, Deep Fusion, Portrait mode and Smart HDR. Introduced with the iPhone 13, Smart HDR 4 uses intelligent segmentation to apply different adjustments for color, contrast, and noise to the subject versus the background. 

This ensures that faces are properly exposed in challenging lighting, and renders people in the same photo individually, with different adjustments optimized for lighting and skin tone for each person. Photographic Styles enables users to bring their personal photo preferences to every image, while still benefitting from Apple’s multi-frame image processing.
