According to new information from Bloomberg reporter, Mark Gurman, Apple will reportedly introduce new 3 new features focused around its camera and video capabilities for their upcoming iPhone models. These include support for portrait mode for video, the ability to shoot video in high-quality format and new filter-like systems.
Apple first introduced portrait mode for photographs a couple of years ago, allowing users to capture objects and people in sharp focus with a bokeh effect in the background. Now, with the 2021 iPhone models, Apple is planning to introduce this ability when shooting videos, and the feature, which is still in development, may be called Cinematic Video.
Along with this, the 2021 iPhones is rumoured to introduce native support for shooting in ProRes video format, which will offer much higher quality. Having ProRes support will give videographers and cinematographers better control over the colours, white balance, exposure and dynamic range in their videos.
The last feature that Apple is working on are new styles in the camera app that will allow users to change certain aspects of their photos, such as showing colors at either a warmer or cooler temperature while keeping whites neutral. These filters will be different from the standard filters, as it will apply to objects and people, instead of affecting the whole photo.
Earlier rumours for the 2021 iPhones include a faster A15 processor, a smaller notch in the display, high refresh displays in the Pro models and sensor-shift technology for the ultra-wide sensor.
