Apple today announced the iPhone 11, ‌iPhone‌ 11 Pro, and the ‌iPhone‌ 11 Max, all-new models that boast improved cameras, and specifically, a dramatic new Night Mode photo feature.

Last year, Google introduced its impressive Night Sight camera mode, a software-based feature that allows users to take detailed pictures in dark environments using Google Pixel smartphones.

Apple's new ‌Night Mode‌ (not to be confused with the new Dark Mode interface option in iOS 13) is Apple's rejoinder to Google's Night Sight, and from the little we've seen so far, the results do look at least on par with the Pixel.

When using the camera app on any of Apple's 2019 iPhones, the new ‌Night Mode‌ feature comes on automatically when an indoor or outdoor scene is dark enough to warrant brightening, resulting in natural colors and reduced noise.

In short, new ‌iPhone‌ users should see an immediate improvement when shooting in low light environments, without having to adjust any exposure settings.

The all-new Ultra Wide and Wide cameras in Apple's latest iPhones offer several other advancements that photographers can look forward to. As always, stay tuned to MacRumors for a full hands-on preview of all the new features.

Apple could easily enable this feature on their older models, this is purely a software feature since it’s been on androids now for a few years. Can’t tell me apples last couple generation chips can’t handle this process. But they won’t enable it since they won’t make money doing that

I'm disappointed in this, Google can do it across their entire lineup!
Google isn't in the business of selling phones when your data will make them way more money.

Sad but true. This kind of stuff really ticks off your customers, Apple. Fortunately, there are/will be third party apps that will do the same thing. Still not as good as having in the stock camera app.

Is it coming to previous model phones too?
Seriously did you read the tittle or the article at all? Wow

I'm glad they showed a real example. Yeah, you're going to lose a decent amount of clarity and a lot of dynamic range, but it's far better than a completely unusable photo. And their example photo does seem to be more of an extreme case. Respect for that.
