The way Night Sight of smartphones Pixel, from Google, caused a real revolution in the world of mobile photography.
Manufacturers ran to try to overcome the cameras that effectively see in the dark – Huawei, so far, was the only one that managed to overcome witchcraft. Apple, for its part, has remained quiet in its corner, although it appears that this state of inertia will not last long.
THE leaker Max Weinbach shared with the YouTube channel EverythingApplePro information that can lift the antennae of iPhone users: according to him, Apple is working on a night photography mode similar to what Google offers on its smartphones, and the feature may already be present on Apple’s 2019 smartphones (see all at 2 minutes and 15 seconds of the video below).
At Apple, the feature would be called «Night Mode» and, although we don’t have much information on the type of technology used to make it possible, it is not difficult to say that machine learning would be an important part of the process, working together with the new three-lens optical system that (supposedly) will come to us new iPhones – or at least some of them.
According to Weinbach, the Apple feature would be comparable in quality to the night photography modes offered by Google and Huawei, and may even surpass them. It would be activated automatically when the device detects a scene without sufficient light, but it could also come with a manual mode, activated whenever the user wishes.
Another information to be confirmed is whether Apple will place the feature as a decoy of future iPhones (and therefore exclusive to them) or will it release the «Night Mode» in a software update for existing models. Google, as we know, did this by placing the Night Sight even on two-year-old Pixel devices, but the first option seems to be more Apple-like.
Still, the news is encouraging. Will Apple finally catch up with the competition in this race? Wait!
