According to foreign media Cult of Mac, the portrait mode on the iPhone XR may be a little different from Apple's other iPhone models. Compared to the higher-priced iPhone XS series, this LCD model has only one rear camera. Although it also supports portrait mode, it has been found that the iPhone XR portrait mode is only for people.
Basically, the iPhone XR's camera has all the new features you might want, including portrait mode, smart HDR photos and depth of field controls. But if you want to use the iPhone XR portrait mode when shooting cats and dogs, the effect may disappoint you.
Ben Bajarin, founder of Techpinions, discovered that the regular object was "immune" to the iPhone XR portrait mode when they started the iPhone XR. Although this may not be a big discovery, because most people use portrait mode for shooting people, it also means that the portrait mode of iPhone X and iPhone XS can provide users with the best imaging effect on a larger scale.
Bajarin pointed out that Apple's biggest competition in the field of smartphone cameras comes from Google. Google Pixel 2 can complete the portrait-style shooting of regular objects with just one camera. In addition, the artificial intelligence algorithm has brought huge improvements to Google's camera. It seems to be more advanced than Apple. I hope that Apple will catch up with Google's technology in the near future.
