Better Low-Light Performance
Most smartphones perform poorly in low-light or dark conditions. That’s an unfortunate fact, and even iPhones aren’t immune to shooting lower-quality photos in the dark.
Adding another sensor into the mix would allow a triple-lens iPhone to draw in more light when snapping a photo. That, in turn, would allow photos to appear brighter and simply better in darker conditions. But there’s another way Apple could boost low-light performance, too.
Apple is bound to go all-in on computational photography, so its next move may very well be a competitor to Google’s stunning Night Sight mode. With a third lens and a similar AI system, Apple’s next iPhones could give the Pixel a run for its money.
