With video, Apple is introducing "Cinematic mode," which uses the power of A15 to automatically blur the background during a video, allowing the subject to stay in focus. During filming, users can tap on different subjects to shift focus.

Glad they kept the mini. Best phone I've ever had when it comes to form factor but unless they swap out the pointless wide angel for zoom and give it better battery I'll be going back to the pro.
