Ok, let’s pretend you and some friends went out for dinner, and at the end of the night, it’s time for a group photo. Unfortunately, it’s dark outside and the street lights aren’t bright enough.

With the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, you won’t have to worry about taking dim, blurry photos anymore!

Apple has introduced Night Mode on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

The A13 Bionic processor and Night Mode technology work together to enhance and brighten your photos the right way without sacrificing the picture quality.

Let's take a look at what is Night Mode and how it works!

What is Night Mode?

Night Mode is useful for any photos taken in dimly lit spaces. From low-lit rooms to outdoor festivals after sunset, don’t sacrifice a perfect photo opportunity by taking a regular, unfocused, shadowy picture.

Above, you’ll see the difference between a regular photo and a Night Mode picture. The latter clearly illuminates the image better, making for a clearer photo. In many other settings, Night Mode will be a handy tool for iPhone users everywhere.


How to Use Night Mode

The new Triple-Camera technology on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max automatically activates Night Mode when it senses the low-lighting environment. You will see the Night Mode icon at the top left of the screen to show that it is enabled.

After clicking the capture button, the camera combines multiple pictures it took to combine all the well-lit parts of your picture and color-correct the image to show its True Colors.

With zero shutter lag, you will produce a high-quality photograph with a click of a button and no editing needed.

Night Mode and Timing

With this new feature, your camera will need some time to put your masterpiece together. Because Night Mode needs a few seconds to analyze and capture everything in the image frame, it will require different time intervals depending on how much light there is.

When in darker settings, the camera will need longer time intervals to scan the environment and light sources to produce the new and improved image for you.

In slightly brighter yet still dim spaces, the camera will take less time to examine and generate the final snap for you.

Practice a little bit to perfect your Night Mode photos. When you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to take amazing pictures even in the dark.

Night Mode: iPhone 11 vs. iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max

All three models, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, have the new Night Mode feature. However, the standard iPhone 11 is limited to only having Night Mode ability on its Wide camera.

The elevated iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have the Night Mode option available on the Wide and Telephoto cameras. This means you can take photos from a distance in a dark or dim location and still capture the details.

The benefits of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max is that both the Wide and Telephoto lenses have the optical image stabilization feature to optimize the photos.

For most pictures, having Night Mode available on the Wide lens is sufficient to capture your photos accurately. The option to use Night Mode on the Telephoto lens is a bonus!

Say cheese!
