With the iPhone 7, Apple is taking mobile photography to the next level. While the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 was the recipient of some nice camera upgrades, the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus is truly a mobile photographers dream. Packed with two 12 megapixel sensors, one a wide angle lens and the other a telephoto lens, Apple’s dual camera system is capable of taking absolutely stunning photos with brilliant color accuracy and crisp detail.
With the iPhone 7 Plus sporting two camera sensors, Apple’s flagship iPhone is capable of all sorts of tricks, one of which is a new “Portrait” mode which blurs the background of a photo and, in turn, causes the main subject in the photo to really stand out. Apple is able to achieve this because its dual camera system is capable of measuring varying degrees of depth within a photo. As a result, Apple’s software does its magic and applies an artificial blur to the background while bringing the subject into sharper focus.
