It’s no secret that the great innovation of the iPhone 7 Plus was the quality of its camera, currently one of the best available on a smartphone. Since the device’s launch, we have seen it used in a variety of cases where using a smartphone would not have been possible before. Now, Condé Nast has used the iPhone 7 Plus to shoot a couple of covers for the May issues of their magazines.
The famous American publisher Condé Nast used the iPhone 7 Plus camera to produce the covers of the May issues of Traveler and Bon Appétit, with being the first time the company uses the iPhone 7 Plus for its magazine covers .

According to TechCrunch’s information for Bon Appétit’s Creative Director, Alex Grossman, this seemed like the perfect time to use the iPhone for the cover shoot, since the iPhone 7’s camera works very well for picking up people and places. Furthermore, the photographers of the cover image explained that the use of an iPhone makes the whole process more relaxed: unlike traditional sessions, it does not require a large number of assistants or reflectors.
In this situation, it is difficult to avoid a big question: Can the iPhone replace a DSLR or not? , but surprisingly and as Grossman explained, there is a point where photos are distinguishable from a $25,000 DSLR, especially in print, although if shot under the right conditions, 99.9% of people would not know the difference.
For many, iPhone photography has reinvented the way we collect memories while traveling, making it easier to capture, with exceptional accuracy, snapshots of our travels or everyday life. Are you a user of this camera? We invite you to comment.
