The A12 Bionic just powers so many incredible new experiences.
And that includes the camera.
Well, you are going to be blown away with the pictures you can take with the iPhone XS's camera.
It is a remarkable new dual camera system.
It has 12 megapixel wide camera a 12 megapixel telephoto camera and an even more improved True Tone flash.
The 12 megapixel wide camera has a new sensor, a larger sensor with bigger deeper pixels.
It has optical image stabilization and our fast one point eight aperture.
Apple's six element lens.
The telephoto camera is also a 12 megapixel camera, also optical image stabilization, f2.4 Apple design lens.
On the front side, you have the TrueDepth camera system, and that's a new sensor as well.
A seven megapixel sensor that's twice as fast.
And it works together with the IR camera and the dot projector so it can create depth in your Portrait Mode photos.
And as we talk about cameras, of course everyone talked about the sensors and the lens.
And rightly so, they're an important part of the camera system.
But increasingly what makes incredible photos possible aren't just the sensor and the lens, but it's the chip and the software that runs on it.
And this is so true With iPhone photography.
So for example in the A12 bionic is the image signal processor working together with the CPU.
And it does so many things every time we take a picture.
It automatically sets exposure, white balance, sets the focus.
Does noise reduction a low light photography.
It brings out highlights and details.
And it can fuse multiple images together, like when you do an HDR photo or create a beautiful panorama.
And the ISP and the [INAUDIBLE] does all of this better than ever before.
But what it does that is entirely new is connect together the ISP.
With that neural engine to use them together to make our photos incredible.
So for example, the CPU and the neural engine can work together to do detection of people's faces and bodies, to understand the scene that you're shooting.
And it can do facial landmarking.
So it recognizes exactly where the eyes are and does instant red eye reduction that looks perfect.
And it creates better segmentation masks.
So when you're doing portrait mode, the hair and the glasses are better than ever before.
This is an amazing amount of power for our camera team.
In fact, when you take a photo, it's capable of doing a trillion operations on every photo you take.
And what the team is doing with that power is truly remarkable.
We have a brand new feature we call Smart HDR.
And we all know what HDR is, right?
You can take a couple photos and merge them together to bring out highlights and shadows and keep your subject looking great.
Well smart HDR takes this idea so much further.
So let's say you're taking a picture and the camera recognizes you're shooting a subject and the subject's moving.
You go to press down on the shutter and you get a picture instantly.
It's called zero shutter lag.
What the A 12 bionic is actually doing is shooting a four frame buffer so it can capture that critical moment.
[INAUDIBLE] is doing even more than that.
It's also capturing secondary interframes at the same time.
And those interframes are shot at a different exposure level to bring out highlight details.
And it's doing more than that.
It's shooting a long exposure so we can get better shadow detail as well.
And when you're taking that picture, it is analysing all of those and match up the best parts of each and match them up into one perfect photo.
That is smart HDR.
It is a breakthrough and it makes taking photos easier than ever, and to get beautiful results.
