Since the iPhone XS went on sale – and now the iPhone XR – users detected a problem with the front camera in the first instance. This one offered unsatisfactory results in self – portraits, since the face and skin of the portrayed ones appeared with a characteristic tone of a filter in beauty mode . Apple has accepted the ruling and it is expected that the solution appears with the update that brings iOS 12.1 to the iDevices.
The rear camera of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max achieved the second best score in the DxOMark tests , one of the references in the sector when cataloging the camera of smartphones. However, the result offered by the front camera was far from what was expected. The self-portraits showed the skin of the face with textures characteristic of beauty mode filters . Something that users were unable to disable.
The problem of the iPhone XS front camera with selfies
With reason, since it is not a configuration that appears in the settings of the front camera of the iPhone XS , iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR. However, when everyone thought that it was a serial adjustment, the calibration offered by Apple, it is now known that it is really an error caused by the HDR filter and the interpretation of the artificial intelligence scene of the Apple chip. A12 Bionic.
Specifically, the Apple IA would promote that the opening speed of the front camera was greater than necessary. In this way, the sensor was not able to capture all the details due to the movements of the user, an effect enhanced in turn by the absence of optical image stabilization.
The solution will come with the update to iOS 12.1
A problem that will soon be solved by the American firm, as The Verge reveals in one of its latest publications. And is that Apple would be able to solve the problem with the front camera of the iPhone XS and iPhone XR in the next big update of iOS 12 .
Everything points to that work will fall on iOS 12.1 , a version of which we already know so many new features from the successive trial versions released by the firm of Cupertino, specifically five betas to date.
Of course, for now there is no information on when that expected update with iOS 12.1 could be released. However, taking into account the time spent by the technology with the Beta of iOS 12.1 , which already accumulates five Betas behind his back, it does not seem that the waiting period can be longer than the month.
