The iPhone 13 will change the way you shoot video.
According to reliable Apple rumormonger Mark Gurman, the iPhone 13 will bring Apple’s excellent background-blurring portrait mode to video. It also will add a new high-quality recording format called ProRes, along with a new system of color-enhancing filters for both photos and video. This will be a significant upgrade for the iPhone’s already impressive video camera, but will professionals want a gimmicky portrait mode?
“I think like most software-based advancements in the history of filmmaking, we will see a lot of purists plug their noses and dismissively say that a feature like portrait mode coming to video on iPhones won’t make much of a difference at all,” Ishaan Mishra, a design director TikTok, told Lifewire via email.
