The statistic was shared during the keynote by Caron Thor, a senior manager at Apple for camera quality. The three trillion photos taken across all iPhones last year include those captured for Apple's popular Shot on ‌‌iPhone‌‌ campaign, which promotes photos taken by ‌‌iPhone‌‌ users by featuring them on Instagram, Apple's website, and billboards worldwide.

Hoping to continue the ‌iPhone‌'s momentum in photography, Apple has made significant strides in the camera on the iPhone 14, especially the higher-end iPhone 14 Pro and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max. The new higher-end cameras feature wider sensors, an all-new 48MP Wide camera, and more.

You can opt in to sharing analytics with Apple.

Let's say 10% of users do. Then Apple can multiply the stats by ten and have a reasonably close estimate.

Lovely… so why did you kill Aperture and force us to use Photos to edit all those glorious pictures one by one?

Call it Photos Pro for all I care but bring back the catalogue and editing functionality of Aperture

You can’t make accurate claims using such a weak analysis. You have no idea how well those two groups usage patterns correlate.
