When the iPhone 11 was released, Apple has presented a new feature for cameras called Deep Fusion. The feature was presented as a new and advanced technology that captures multiple frames from before and after you trigger the capture it combines them using AI technology into a high detail photo. Still, the iPhone 11 was released without the Deep Fusion feature but it won’t take a long time until we can test it because the feature will be included in the iOS 13.2 update.
The developers beta for iOS 13.2 mentions Deep Fusion, but right now the feature is not active. It appears that it will be released very soon, probably at the same time as the arrival of the Beta version for all users. The Deep Fusion feature will only be available for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro max because the Deep Fusion feature uses the processing power of the Apple A13 chip for capture and processing, and older models will not be able to provide the same photo quality especially when we consider the impressive leap of the cameras of the new iPhone.
Deep Fusion will only work with the rear camera. The ultra wide camera is not able to capture highly detailed frames while photos with the zoom camera will have limited compatibility, even when considering the impressive processing power of the A13 Bionic chipset. Most likely it won’t take longer than a second or two but you won’t be able to see the final photo as fast as with regular frames.
The camera of the iPhone 11 is already considered one of the best on the market, being comparable with the cameras of rival smartphones from Google, Huawei and Samsung. Most likely the Deep Fusion feature will make the iPhone 11 camera even better.
Apple has not mentioned a “release date”for the iOS 13.2 update and the Deep Fusion feature but it is very likely for Apple to release the “beta”version before the end of this year. A similar situation existed when the “portrait”feature was released for the iPhone 7 Plus, which was released in Beta with the iOS 10 version of the OS and became a “finalized”feature a year later when the iOS 11 and the iPhone 8/X generation was launched.
