It’s no secret that the Portrait Mode on iPhone XS is a work of wonder. With iPhone XS, users can use Depth Control after a photo is taken to control the background and deliver a rich bokeh effect. Users have been posting photos captured with the new iPhone XS and XS Max with the hashtag #ShotoniPhone. Apple has curated some of these photos and posted them on their website.
Apple has wowed the world with new camera features in iPhone XS. Smart HDR and the new Depth Control in Portrait Mode are some of the big updates in XS, which result in amazing photos.
Here are some of the photos Apple shared on their website, which show off Smart HDR, Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting.

The sharpness, colors, clarity and bokeh effect on these photos look as good as results from a DSLR. With post-capture bokeh effect modification, users can actually improve their portrait shots after capture. Apple calls this Depth Control and said that they plan on bringing it into the camera viewfinder with a later update to iOS 12. This will allow users to modify the bokeh effect while capturing a photo.
It is obvious that the current and upcoming improvements in smartphone cameras will be computational. Apple had announced the start of a new computational era of photography with the launch of iPhone XS and iPhone XR. With the new A12 Bionic chip, and the faster neural engine, Apple is performing trillions of calculations per second to help users capture superior photos and videos.
