I am aware. I am just judging the photo's as presented. Point and click iPhone photos have always tended toward the cool side in my experience. Dan's photos from the Pro Max are the opposite. They remind me of the warmth of Samsung color science which favors red. It's not a criticism, it's just an observation. The photos look good, just warm.The warmness can be dialed down easily in post with the camera app.
Check the App Store. There are several apps that allow older models to approximate some of the software photography features. Neural Cam is one such app. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/neuralcam-night-mode-camera/id1474856599Maybe this is asking for too much, but what I wonder is why can't some of these software only tricks on photos be updated to work on existing or fairly recent iPhones? They wouldn't have the same amazing results, but there could and would be great improvements even on older equipment. I'm sure older iPhone users of the better models would even pay a nominal charge for such a software update.

"The ultra wide-angle lens has an f/2.4 aperture and no optical image stabilization like the other lenses in the iPhone 11 Pro Max, ....." So they will add that as a selling point for next years model. ? I know nothing about cameras, other than point and click. Why couldn't they add that to this years model?
Please don't! Please value your money.I might be crazy, the jury is still out on that one. But I am also a tech enthusiast on a forum for Apple rumors that over analyzing features, so the upgrade bug is easy to get. I mostly only take pictures of my dog, sometimes during some hikes, yet I still am on the fence to upgrade from my XS Max. I know I shouldn't, but it's a whole year I could have the new thing.
I would be interested to know how many people are on the Apple upgrade program and get a new phone through that every single year.
I hate to sound like a pompous photographer here, but I second this.Ultrawide angle lenses, to quote the excellent discussion by Ken Rockwell, are the most difficult lenses to use well, and are not "for getting it all in." Ken has an excellent discussion of the use of this type of lens on his website. His examples of poor ultra wide angle photography are demonstrated in the examples in this article, with big expanses of paving bricks and lawn, filling the bottom half of the screen. Please read Ken's excellent post on this subject.
Upgraded from XS Max and not much difference in day photos but a world of difference in low light. And the ultra wide shots are really useful for taking landscape and bigger areas. Don't need to use the full width but really helpful to adjust. So I'm content. Also have Deep Fusion to look forward to....
It also sounds like someone who could be making an honest assessment as well, just as the words assert.Sounds like a XS owner trying to convince himself that he still likes his phone...
