Portrait Mode on iPhone 11 Was Made for Pigs

I jokingly mentioned in my iPhone 11 review that Portrait Mode on the new iPhones was made for pigs. The new camera system in the new phones are damn impressive, particularly on the 11 Pro. My pet mini pig, Pablo, has been a great test subject as I’ve played amateur shutterbug. I’ve posted these to my private Facebook and Instagram pages.

Following in the footsteps of BuzzFeed’s John Paczkowski, here’s a take on the iPhone 11 camera(s) from my porcine pal.

The iPhone XR that I’ve used for the last year as my main phone has Portrait Mode, but it’s limited to only humans. As such, it’s been a lot of fun having a second lens on the new iPhones to capture Portrait photos of other things, including my beloved four-legged friend.
