While the iPhone today is capable of taking absolutely stunning and arguably best-in-class photos, that wasn't always the case. Going back in time a bit, the original iPhone camera was nothing special. In fact, the original iPhone camera wasn't even respectable relative to what other smartphone manufacturers were releasing at the time. Over time, though, Apple began to invest more in camera technologies and it wasn't long before new iPhone models were routinely setting new standards of excellence for mobile photography.
In recent years, Apple has undeniably taken mobile photography to the next level, thanks in large part to the company's control of both the iPhone hardware and software. Most recently, Apple released a camera feature it dubs Portrait Lighting. The feature itself takes advantage of the iPhone's dual camera scheme and enables users to take photos designed to resemble professional shots that would ordinarily be taken in a studio environment.
