Let’s get it out of the way first: The new iPhone 11 Pro has the best overall smartphone camera system I’ve used… the iPhone 11 Pro is the champ.
If you only hope to point the camera at a subject and get usable—and often pretty impressive—shots, then the 11 Pro is unbeatable. But if you already know how to use a camera — even a previous iPhone camera — there’s a learning curve that might change at any time thanks to software updates, and it could have a real effect on the look of your photos and videos. Plus, the new phone is a reminder that iPhone photography — and smartphone shooting on the whole — is increasingly different than typical photography.
Have you heard about the specter of Apple tech called Deep Fusion reportedly coming later this Fall? The AI-powered software will reportedly change the iPhone’s photo and video performance drastically again. And it won’t stop there. Once you learn to shoot with an iPhone camera, there’s a good chance you’re going to need to learn it all over again in a generation or two. Or you could just accept the iPhone’s suggestions and shoot like it wants you to.

If you want (much) more control of iPhone photography, download an app like Halide (highly recommended) and use it instead of Apple’s supplied Camera app which is, by far, the best app for the vast majority of iPhone shooters.
