There are exciting changes coming to your iPhone’s camera.
The Apple iPhone’s latest operating system, iOS 11, won’t officially be available until this fall, but Apple gave us a look at what’s coming (and what’s currently available for developers to try).
When it comes to the camera, there are new editing tools and camera features that will make your iPhone shots feel more like DSLR photos.
While many of the changes will be available to all iPhone users, keep in mind that Apple’s DSLR-like feature, Portrait mode, isn’t available to everyone. Only those with an iPhone 7 Plus or (eventually) later have Portrait mode, so only those users will see some of the new tweaks.
Here’s a look at all the new photo features in iOS 11:
Memories will be more intelligent — and more personalized.
Memories — the photo and video collections Apple automatically creates for you — will now be able to pick your best photos, eliminating things like people blinking or doubled up images.
iOS 11 will also include new types of memories for events like nights out, “TBTs,” and anniversaries.
Live Photos will get new effects.
With iOS 11, Live Photos will get three new effects: Loop, bounce, and long exposure.
– Loop replay the action in the shot over and over
– Bounce will play the video forward then backward
– Long exposure will blur anything moving within the frame like a DSLR camera.
You’ll be able to edit Live Photos.
You’ll now be able to enhance, crop, add filters, trim, and mute your Live Photos. Plus, Apple will give you the option to pick your own “key photo” as the main image.
