According to rumors, the iPhone 15 will have a Sony-made image sensor that roughly doubles saturation signal levels per pixel to capture more light in low-light conditions. This should significantly reduce over- and underexposure.
The Night Shift feature limits blue light to reduce eye strain at night. It can be manually enabled or set to run on a schedule.
It’s an option that changes your device’s display to a warmer tone ip 15 vn/a during the night. This is supposed to reduce the impact that blue light has on sleep patterns. The theory is that it’s the brightness of the screen, not the color that has a detrimental effect.
The feature is similar to True Tone that came to iPhone 8 and the other iPad Pro sizes in 2017 and then to MacBook Air, Macbook Pro, and other Apple devices in 2018. Both features use hardware sensors to adjust the display automatically based on ambient light conditions.
While the idea behind this function is a good one, a recent study by researchers at Brigham Young University has called into question its effectiveness. They found that while the blue-light filter did shift the colors of apps to warmer hues, it didn’t actually lower phone usage during bedtime or improve sleep quality.
To enable Night Shift, open Settings and tap Display & Brightness. From there you can manually enable the feature until tomorrow or set a schedule using the toggle switch next to “Enable Night Shift from sunset to sunrise.” If you do decide to set up a schedule, remember that it will remain on the same day of the week unless you change it.
Improved Low Light Photography
Apple’s already made significant improvements to its flagship iPhone cameras, but this year’s new 48MP sensor could be even better. A new rumor suggests that the iPhone 15 Pro range will feature a “state-of-the-art” image sensor from Sony, which could dramatically improve its low light photography performance.
The Sony image sensor apparently doubles the saturation signal in each pixel, which helps to cut down on under or overexposure. It also uses semiconductor architecture that separates the photodiodes and transistors, rather than integrating them into one layer. This should help with tackling backlighting and other challenging lighting situations, which have been problems for previous iPhones.
Supposedly, the new sensor will also allow for longer exposures when using Night Mode. In fact, the iPhone will automatically adjust the shutter length based on how much the phone and subject move. This will help eliminate blurriness when shooting a moving subject, and also make it easier to capture images in poor lighting conditions.
Other rumors suggest the iPhone 15 will move to USB-C, dropping its proprietary Lightning port. This is to comply with new European regulations on electronic waste, but it will also allow for faster data transfers and support Thunderbolt for external hard drives. Apple supplier Foxconn has reportedly already begun producing accessories for the iPhone 15 with USB-C connectors that are MFi certified by Apple, which will be able to offer fast charging and high-speed data transfer.
Ceramic Shield Front Cover
As we all know, one of the worst things that can happen to your smartphone is getting it broken by a fall or other accident. This is why many smartphone manufacturers try to make their screens more resistant to damage. While some use Corning’s Gorilla Glass, Apple goes the extra mile with their Ceramic Shield technology that they first introduced in the iPhone 12.
According to Apple, this layer is “four times tougher than any glass in a smartphone.” The company also claims it has great transparency and optical performance. To achieve this, engineers developed a new high-temperature crystallization process that grows nano-ceramic crystals within the glass matrix and dramatically improves toughness.
Ceramic crystals are hard, but it’s important to remember that they’re also brittle. That’s why engineers were able to develop a special ion exchange process that makes the crystals stronger while keeping them transparent. This is a big improvement over the old way of making glass that only focuses on strength and durability without much transparency.
Apple also combines the ceramic with a layer of boron nitride to make the entire screen more durable. This combination is four times tougher than a normal glass and can withstand a 6-foot drop with ease. This makes it a lot more resilient than other phone screens and should help reduce the number of cracked screens that come out of the iPhone 15 Ultra.
