On Tuesday, Apple announced that the upcoming iPhone 11 will have one very important new feature: pet portrait mode! While this news left me feeling very excited, I also now feel very conflicted. See, after I got the iPhone X I swore I wouldn't need another upgrade for at least five years. I really thought I could stay true to my word . . . until I saw that the iPhone 11 can take photos of furry friends - dogs, cats, guinea pigs, you name it - in high-res. Now I'm rethinking everything (and reevaluating my bank account) to see how I can take advantage of this latest feature.
Unlike the X, the iPhone 11 will have new Ultra Wide and Wide cameras lenses, which work in tandem for a high-quality photo experience that allows pets to also reap the benefits of portrait mode. If you (or your four-legged companion) are interested in snagging one of these new devices for yourself, get ready to pre-order at 5 a.m. PDT on Sept. 13. The iPhone 11 starts at $699.
