iOS 16 improves Portrait and Cinematic modes for iPhone 13 camera and adds 'Duplicate Detection'

With iOS 16, Apple has upgraded Portrait and Cinematic modes on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro models. The Cupertino business outlined its features after introducing the new iOS version, including upgrades to the camera effects available on the current iPhone models.

The upgrades are also anticipated to be pre-installed on the iPhone 14 versions, which are expected to be released later this year. The iOS 16 update also includes a ‘Duplicate detection’ tool for photographs, allowing users to tidy up their photo libraries by eliminating duplicates.

According to Apple’s dedicated iOS 16 Preview website, the new iOS version improves Portrait mode on the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 mini, allowing users to blur items in the foreground of a shot.

This is an improvement over the current Portrait mode, which enables users to alter background blur to bring them into focus.

Apple claims that the enhancement would provide customers with a “more realistic-looking depth-of-field effect.”

On the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro models, iOS 16 introduces an upgraded Cinematic option for video shooting and the improved Portrait mode.

According to the manufacturer, shooting movies in Cinematic mode will provide a more realistic depth-of-field effect for profile angles and around the edges of hair and spectacles.

The ‘Duplicate detection’ function in iOS 16 employs machine learning to identify duplicate photographs, allowing users to tidy up the clutter and delete them. Albums > Utilities will be the user’s entry point to the functionality.

According to an image posted by MacRumors, a Duplicates folder will be accessible under the Utility area, allowing users to examine and remove duplicate photos to free up space on their device.

‘Duplicate detection’ will be enabled on macOS Ventura in addition to iOS 16 to assist Mac users in saving up space on their devices by deleting duplicate photographs.
