Apple seems to be giving a solution to the main problems that the cameras of its iPhone have dragged for too long. Yes, problems after all, despite being one of the best on the market. The best thing is that these are mostly software, so you won’t have to go for the future iPhone 13 to get rid of them.
Goodbye to night mode (if you want)
The iPhone camera application has always been characterized by being very simple, too much if we compare it with what native Android terminal apps usually offer. Even so, what for some is a clear disadvantage, for others it is one of its great virtues. And you have to admit that to a certain extent this is the case, because you just open it, frame it and shoot. Zero complications, although you have a few options to fix focus, exposure, and some additional detail.
However, in the same way that it happens with other aspects, there are details that could get a lot annoying in the day to day taking photos. One of these was related to night mode. This was introduced with the launch of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro to improve results when capturing images in low light. The problem is that he sometimes jumped when he shouldn’t have. You know, the problems of letting the phone decide for itself how it should process an image.
Well, if in iOS 14 that feature can be disabled, the problem is that it is only temporary and when you exit or it crashes, it ends and you start the camera app again. So it can get you to annoy shots that can not be repeated.
With the arrival of iOS 15, the next version of the operating system that will arrive this fall, this feature of the night mode will be able to be permanently disabled . This gives a solution to a function that sometimes caused more headaches than benefits. And in the same way, it can be activated only when you want to.
Of course, in order to access this option, you will have to go to the iOS Settings and in the Camera section enter the option to Keep settings. There you will find an additional option that will affect the night mode in the same way that it does now for other features. Thus, when you activate or deactivate this mode, it will not be done temporarily but fixed.
Repairing the iPhone camera
This change in the iPhone camera application joins others that we have known in recent days and that are going to mean an interesting improvement in the photographic capabilities of the Apple phone, which in itself was already interesting in this regard, but he had little details to figure out.
With iOS 15 the issue of night mode is solved, also the annoying green halos among others that appeared when taking pictures where there was a powerful light source (this will be done through processing). In addition, although I am surely limited to the new terminals, there is also talk of the arrival of portrait mode when recording video and the possibility of recording in ProRes format , a codec that allows higher quality video.
In short, we will see what it is all about when the iPhone 13 is presented or whatever they decide to call it. Because with Apple you never know, but it is clear all this is necessary considering how Android phones have improved and continue to do so in photographic matters.
