Evolution of iPhone cameras shown off in a comparison


The #Apple #iPhone lineup has been immensely popular since it was first shown off back in 2007 by the eternal Steve Jobs. The series today is one of the most popular in the market with no signs of stopping down.

Just as the iPhone 6s became available for purchase this past weekend, a renowned photography team decided to give us a very good idea of how far the iPhone cameras have come since the original model was released about eight years ago.

The models here include, the iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6S. It’s clear that Apple upped its camera game with the iPhone 4, which was the first model to sport a backside illuminated camera sensor, while retaining the f/2.8 aperture from the previous three versions of the iPhone.

With the iPhone 4S and the 5, the company started using a slightly bigger f/2.4 sensor, which further improved image quality. This also significantly improved the low light shooting capabilities from ISO 800 to 3200.

Lisa Bettany, the photographer responsible for these findings has mentioned that iPhone models have seen upgrades with each model, telling us that Apple has always taken the camera of its flagships quite seriously.

We have attached low light and macro shots taken from all nine iPhone models below for your perusal.
