Apple’s new iPhone 11/Pro/Pro Max features Night mode which means that shooting in low light doesn’t have to be a shot in the dark. Night mode is a new feature that turns on automatically for low‑light photos like you’ve never seen. There’s no need for flash, colors are more natural, and photos are brighter.

Michael Potuck for 9to5Mac:

The iPhone 11 lineup brings a lot of camera enhancements and one of the exciting features is the new Night mode to offer big improvements to low light shots. Now, what may be the first real-world Night Mode image shot on the iPhone 11 Pro Max is out in the wild and the results are impressive.

MacDailyNews Take: Apple’s Night mode makes Google’s Night Shot look like Night Shit.

Leave it to Apple to give their users night shots done right!


  1. It’s too early to make a real comparison. There’s more to a shot than just brightness. Grain and detail are also important, and we need to see some full size pictures to tell about that.

    What I’m really waiting to see is the deep fusion, which combines 8 shots to give a 24mp picture with less noise and greater dynamic range, along with more detail. Some expensive DSLR’s and mirrorless cameras can do that in a few instances, but need a tripod. If Apple’s can be used handheld, that will be a bigger breakthrough.
