Apple’s iPhone 13 performs a movie-like rack-focus with AI, but the user can take control by changing depth and focus, during or after recording.
During the iPhone 13 launch, Apple announced Cinematic mode, an impressive video capability that works with all models. Apple spent quite a bit of time showing off this feature without really explaining how to use it. An interesting detail with Cinematic mode is that the special effect can be adjusted even after a video has been recorded. This takes the pressure off of getting the focus just right when recording.
Apple updated the iPhone 13 with a faster processor, a brighter screen, more advanced stabilization for the main camera, lenses, and image sensors that capture more light. No big changes were made but several hardware features received significant upgrades. An iPhone is more than simply hardware, though, and iOS 15 and Apple apps were enhanced with great new features as well.
