Well-known Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman shared new information about the photo and video capabilities of new apple smartphones. According to the latest data, Apple plans to refine a number of software mechanisms and add support for new formats to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro.
According to Gurman, one of the features that will appear in the new Apple smartphones this year will be the ability to shoot video in portrait mode. Previously, such information has already appeared on the network. However, it has now been confirmed by an authoritative source. Recall that for the first time the portrait mode appeared in the iPhone 7 Plus. Until now, shooting with the bokeh effect was only available for photos. However, this year the situation may change. Moreover, this option will be available not only on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, but also in the “younger” models. However, in high-end devices, an image can be formed taking into account data from LiDAR.
Along with portrait mode for video, Apple’s new smartphones should also get support for the ProRes format. This innovation will allow users to record better videos, and then edit the footage in professional editors. According to Gurman, the ProRes format will be one of the features of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. In the “younger” models, this option will not be.
Apple also plans to change the sets of standard photo filters. Thanks to advanced algorithms, users will be able to apply different masks to individual objects in the pictures.
In addition, Gurman once again confirmed earlier rumors regarding the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro. According to the journalist, the next Apple smartphones will be based on the Apple A15 processor and will have a smaller screen notch. Models with the prefix Pro in the title should additionally differ from their predecessors with screens with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and support for the Always on Display function.
