There is a colossal debate, as is usual in the world of technology, about when smartphones will be able to overcome digital cameras . But, as the saying goes, "the best camera is the one you carry with you." And the iPhone camera has evolved so much that it has even become an indispensable tool for many professional photographers.

Now, there is no doubt that the iPhone X has the most spectacular and highest quality camera among all Apple models. And to celebrate, in this article we will take a look at the evolution of the iPhone camera over the past few years.


The original iPhone of 2007 had a camera of only 2 megapixels in the back. We are talking about photographs with a resolution of 1,600 x 1,200 pixels ... But, at that time, it was already a surprising quality.

The iPhone 3G introduced in 2008 did not introduce any changes to the camera's hardware. It was still 2 megapixels, but its diameter increased 0.5 millimeters .

IPhone 3GS arrives and Apple began to implement some significant changes. His camera had a resolution of 3 megapixels and was capable of recording video with a resolution of 640 x 480 at 30 fps . It also had auto-focus and automatic white balance.

With the launch of the iPhone 4 users began to see how the quality of camera photography began to take shape. The rear iSight camera was increased to 5 megapixels and an LED flash was incorporated. In addition, video recording increased to 720 pixels (HD) . It is noteworthy that the company used multiple lens elements in the camera to improve the quality of the images. The diameter of it grew to 6 millimeters. But there is still more, a 0.3 megapixel front camera was added.

Apple introduced the iPhone 4s in 2011, this model featured an 8-megapixel rear camera . The 4s had an image processor built into its A5 chip. His camera had face detection and 30% more clarity and color accuracy than in the previous generation.

The iPhone 5s offered an 8 megapixel camera with an aperture of f / 2.2 to allow more ambient lighting. The flash was updated to become dual LED and had a True Tone module. Another of the most interesting novelties of this model of the signature of the bitten apple was the introduction of video recording in slow motion , capturing images at 120 fps. His low-cost brother, the iPhone 5c, had a camera with the same characteristics.

The Apple iPhone 6 was the first model of the company to have a controversial bulge for the opening of the camera in its aluminum housing. But let's talk about hardware. It still had 8 megapixels , its video recording was 60 fps and slow motion was improved from 120 fps to 240 fps . As for the iPhone 6 Plus, it offered optical image stabilization.
