Why miss the older versions for Night Mode in the camera?
Versions last year such as the iPhone XR and iPhone XS or the year before last like the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus does not contain the feature of Night Mode in the camera as to its performance in low light is not good and compares like series Google Pixel all of which contain a status property night through improvements in the image processing software which gives impressive results actually.
Also Samsung has provided the feature of Night Mode in cell phones Galaxy S 10 noted 10 via the update sub-system. Didn’t use Apple to do the same thing with phones such as the iPhone XR and iPhone XS and iPhone X via software update the camera? Especially since the camera those phones already with very good specifications.
There are several opinions trying to explain it:
- To update hardware for iPhone 11 of the hand sensor the biggest and most powerful processor was necessary first to improve the quality of night photography, and older versions do not contain the appropriate specifications.
- Apple may be able to improve Night Photography via update software, but the results will be less than expected and without the level.
- Apple chose to be the feature of night photography is exclusive only in camera iPhone 11 to urge consumers to purchase.
Whatever view is right, features night photography will not be available on older versions of the iPhone anyway as it alone is not sufficient to drive consumers to upgrade to iPhone 11.
