Cómo utilizar el modo Retrato del iPhone 7 Plus: requisitos, uso, trucos y qué hacer si no tienes un iPhone 7 Plus

In 2016 the apple company officially presented the ‘Portrait Mode’, a functionality that allows us to take photographs with a blurred effect on the background to give more value and presence to the main object of the image. This is achieved thanks to the phone’s two cameras: the wide-angle camera and the telephoto lens.

Well, in recent months with the arrival of the iOS 12 beta, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, a lot of significant improvements have been uncovered that Apple did not have the opportunity to show in the WWDC keynote18 . One of them is the arrival of an improved ‘Portrait Mode’ , for iPhone models that are supported.

Ben Sandofsky, creator of Halide Camera, the handheld camera application for the iPhone, has found that the ‘Portrait Mode’ offers much better results on iOS 12 than on iOS 11 . For example, as we can see in the image, the next version of the mobile operating system does a significantly better job of identifying the edges of a subject. It even highlights individual hairs, something that was rarely achieved in iOS 11.

Although it is not clear if Sandofsky used the front or back camera of the iPhone for these images, we can see how more details can be appreciated in the shot. It is clear that Apple has made great improvements in the ‘Portrait Mode’ that should give us better photos.

We can even see on Apple’s official website how the company claims that portrait mode photos are better than ever on iOS 12. This is because the camera now generates a mask when it detects a person, and intelligently separates the person from the scene .

Similarly, the apple company indicates that a new API for third-party developers allows for the separation of layers in a photo , so that the background is successfully separated from the foreground.
