Portrait lighting mode could work on iPhone 7 Plus if Apple wanted, says a developer


The developer Steven Troughton Smith has published a tweet in which he tells us that he has managed to enable portrait lighting mode in the iPhone 7 Plus. This mode, remember, is exclusive to the iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X, but apparently it is possible to take photos with this mode on the iPhone 7 Plus thanks to its double rear camera, and also edit them to change the effect as it is done in the two latest iPhone models that Apple has released to the market.
This could indicate that Apple is deliberately limiting the portrait lighting mode to new iPhone models, leaving the iPhone 7 Plus aside although it is technically able to get this new effect on the photos taken with the portrait mode of the App. Camera. This mode uses the two rear cameras, one to make the photo and another to determine the depth of the image. This information is saved so that later, when editing the image, we can create the portrait using the background of it, that is, what is behind the photographed subject, and blur it(in the case of portrait mode) or darken it in the case of portrait lighting mode. This new darkening effect is what Apple keeps reserved for the iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X, although in reality, it is only an edition that is done via software, using exactly the same depth information obtained with the second lens.
We will wait to see if Apple says anything in the coming days about this issue, because if true, it probably would not give the company a very good image to see how it uses software functionalities to promote the sale of new iPhone models to the detriment of the oldest The iPhone 7 Plus, however, only has a little more than a year of life in stores, so it can not be considered an old smartphone either .
