When Apple announced the iPhone 11 and the 11 Pro lineup, the company talked in great lengths about a Deep Fusion camera technology that would redefine low-light imagery to a great extent. However, the feature didn’t ship with the iPhones launched last month, with Apple stating that it will be sent out in the form of an update sometime during the Fall.
It now seems like the day is near with Apple giving out some details on the feature as well as its impending release on an upcoming beta version of iOS 13. This means it’s still some distance away from hitting iPhone 11 and 11 Pro models, but the fact that developers will get access to it with the next beta means that we only have to wait a couple of months or maybe lesser.
While Apple’s default feature, also known as Night Mode photography, does a decent job on its own, Deep Fusion tech is expected to be a game-changer. This tech will apparently run in the background, which means that the user won’t even know it’s in operation. However, it will make a significant difference to the images. Apple shared some photos taken using this new tech and they do look impressive.
One of the core elements of this new tech is how it captures four images, blends them together in what is known within Apple as the “synthetic long” format to produce stunning images. All of this happens when you press the camera shutter, so it’s pretty instantaneous.
With camera tech forging ahead with great promise, it will be interesting to see what this tech can do to iPhone photography. Are you impressed by the camera tech on board the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro series?
