Photos and videos are getting some new features and upgrades from Apple. On the iPhone, filters can be used while taking the photo, and new live options such as photo-looping and picking from live frames are coming out. These are based on longer exposure times and are part of iOS 11. Enhanced compression of photos and videos on the Macbook will lead to more storage room. This new encoding will not reduce video quality. The native Photos software is getting a facelift too.
- Camera features have been updated in the iOS 11, including enhancements in portrait mode, live photos, and Boomerang-like features.
- Changes are coming for Macs as well, with technology that will allow photos and videos to take up less space.
- The updates that are planned to be released to iPhone and Mac users seem to be geared towards those in the professional field, rather than just the everyday user.
“The Photo apps on iOS 11 and OS High Sierra have some new, fun capabilities which will most likely cause me to use the camera more than I currently do.”
