iPhone 13 Photographic Styles
iOS 15 allows five preset shooting configurations for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro:
1. Standard style (tone: 0 | Heat: 0)
This is the default realistic appearance that is naturally produced by the iPhone’s camera. It’s balanced, which means the tone and heat have 0 settings.
2. Rich contrast style (tone: -50 | Warmth: 0)
This setup favors darker shadows, richer colors, and stronger contrast. It is recommended if you want to achieve a dramatic look.
3. Vibrating style (tone: +50 | Heat: 0)
A preset that promotes wonderfully bright and vivid colors. You should use it if you want to create a shiny yet natural look.
4. Warm style (tone: 0 | Warmth: +50)
This photographic style for iPhone 13 adds a warm look to your photo with the help of golden undertones.
5. Cool style (tone: 0 | Heat: -50)
If you want to get chilled photos from your iPhone 13’s camera, you have to choose this preset which uses blue undertones.
