iPhone Photos and Videos Get an Upgrade with iOS 16 but Only Some Models Can Use It


Only a few of the most recent iPhone models are eligible for the iOS 16 software upgrade, which enhances the iPhone’s photography and filming capabilities.

The Portrait mode and Cinematic mode both received major upgrades as a result of the firmware update. As was announced when Apple gave a sneak peek of the new operating system at WWDC earlier this year, iOS 16 improves the quality of video taken in Cinematic mode, making the depth-of-field effect more precise at profile angles and around the edges of hair and glasses, as was announced when Apple gave a sneak peek of the new operating system at WWDC earlier this year

Additionally, Apple is adding the option to blur foreground objects in photos to iOS 16 in order to create “a more realistic-looking depth of field effect.”

According to Apple, only the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max support the improvements to portrait shots and Cinematic mode. It’s unclear whether the iPhone 13 mini’s exclusion was done on purpose or inadvertently.

One of the key features Apple highlighted when it unveiled the iPhone 13 lineup last year was cinematic mode, but since Portrait mode has been a feature of nearly all iPhone models since the release of the iPhone 7 Plus in 2016, it is unclear why only the most recent models benefit from the software updates for Portrait mode.

Along with a number of other camera improvements, these enhancements are probably supported by Apple’s future iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 Pro models’ cameras will “raise mobile phone camera photography to a new level,” he previously stated.
