Apple’s upcoming flagship iPhones, likely to be called the iPhone 13 line, will be able to automatically blur the backgrounds of footage as part of a new video portrait mode, according to a new report from Bloomberg. This “Cinematic Video” feature is said to be one of three major new camera features coming to this year’s iPhones. The other two are support for ProRes video recording, and new editing options for photographs.
The improvements join another camera upgrade that’s believed to be on the way for this year’s phones. Last November, reliable Apple analyst Min-Chi Kuo said that the phones’ ultrawide cameras would be improved, with a larger aperture for better low-light photography.
