Wide and telephoto, but not ultra wide.
That's right - I just got home and was able to test it again. I guess it doesn't work with the ultra-wide lens because the aperture isn't big enough or something ... ? It's less sensitive than the other two lenses.

There’s no OIS on Ultra Wide. It means it would be difficult to achieve stable pics in Night Mode since the software stacks multiple images together.

Right, I completely forgot about that. I guess that'll probably be an iPhone 12S feature - OIS on the ultra-wide. I mean, next year they'll have 5G, bilateral charging, a redesign, etc. Gotta save some upgrade reasons for the "S" model, right?

Worng. LG has night mode and works very well. IMO they are just trying to catch up in the ultra wide department.
