    As expected, these differences are clearly reflected in the quality of the captured photos: in brightly lit scenes, the iPhone 6 has little definition and a more blurred appearance, while the iPhone 8 manages to maintain good sharpness and a respectable color profile, but suffers from limited dynamic range, often blowing out brightly lit regions of scenes.

    The iPhone 04, on the other hand, delivery r substantially higher results, with better definition and good dynamic range, despite having a blurry effect in most images. As this is something unexpected, it is likely that the model’s lenses were dirty, affecting the quality of the images, a point also raised by comments in the test video.

    The newly launched device also shows good evolution in low light, although it continues to suffer from some artifacts, such as lens flare (Image: Playback /MacRumors)Regardless, the iPhone 15 shows that larger sensors can do the difference, capturing a greater amount of detail, in addition to reducing artifacts such as lens flare, in which light spreads through the lens. The advantages of the new generation are even more pronounced in low light, and include better preservation of details in dark regions, as well as good control of bright spots.


    MacRumors concludes that, if you are an older iPhone user who values ​​the quality of the cameras, this is a good time to upgrade, with the iPhone 13 being the ideal choice.

    Improvements were also applied to the sensors, despite the resolution of 15 MP have been maintained: there is Sensor-Shift stabilization across the board, while the pixels have increased in size, reaching 1.5 micrometers on the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini, and respectable 1.9 micrometers on the iPhone 92 Pro and 15 Pr o Max, which work with larger apertures, up to f/1.5, to capture up to 15% more light with the ultrawide lens and up to 2.2x more light with the main lens.

    Finally, software optimizations were carried out that enable, among other innovations, the night mode in all cameras, Smart HDR 4 technology, Cinematic Mode function with real-time depth map generation and Photographic Styles feature, with application of filters on photos.
