Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro in Alpine Green: Hands on
While the Alpine Green color is the only thing that Apple added to the iPhone 13 Pro at the latest Apple event, it is a welcome addition to the lineup. Here’s what it looks like.
Alpine Green iPhone 13 Pro
At the Peek Performance spring event, Apple released two new versions of its latest handset. This is has started to become commonplace for Apple as seemingly a way to juice sales halfway through a new iPhone’s lifespan.
In previous years it brought (PRODUCT)Red versions of its devices and last year we got a new purple color for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. This year we got two new green hues, not just for the base phones, but the pro models as well.
The iPhone 13 now comes in “green” while the iPhone 13 Pro has an indiscriminately-named Alpine Green color.
A new pro colorway
Alpine Green joins Sierra Blue, graphite, gold, and silver in the iPhone 13 Pro lineup. Apple has tinted both the stainless steel frame and the frosted glass back.
Sierra Blue and Alpine Green iPhone 13 Pro
The color doesn’t always stand out because of that frosted matte back on the pro iPhones. Depending on the lighting condition it can look washed out and almost silver in some, yet it is rich and vibrant in others. It’s a neat look and we do prefer this hue to that of the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro.
Apple iPhone 13 Pro
Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro features a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion, A15 Bionic chip and Pro 12MP camera system.
All of Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro colors still feel muted, though. Not pastel-level, but the Sierra Blue, green, and gold aren’t particularly saturated. The less-muted colors belong to the iPhone 13 non-pro lineup.
Some of this is because of the process needed to dye the metal in the phone. But some of it is not, and we’re still wondering if there’s something else beyond chemistry and stylistic choices behind the color decisions.
Alpine Green iPhone 13 Pro outside
The phone’s color popped more when we took it out into the real world, away from our bright studio lights. The warm sun rays in the early evening seemed to accentuate the green’s saturation.
iPhone 13.- no pro
We opted not to pick up a standard green version of the iPhone 13, though we did check them out in the store. The glossy back of the iPhone 13 makes the color look a bit darker as the matte surface of the iPhone 13 Pro can diffuse the light a bit.
New green color of iPhone 13
If the light is the same, it does appear that green on the iPhone 13 is a bit darker than that of the iPhone 13 Pro.
As all iPhone 13 models are prone to do, it still picked up quite a bit of dust and link, which was more evident on the shiny surface.
We doubt anyone will choose their iPhone purely based on the saturation of this green color, but it’s more a comparison between the two different back finishes that Apple employs.
Where to buy
The two new colored iPhones are available to order now from both Apple and third-party retailers. They include the same accessories as every iPhone, including a Lightning to USB-C cable and a sole white Apple sticker.

At press time, the wireless carriers below are offering buy one, get one offers, along with trade-in deals on Apple’s iPhone line.
I can’t resist Apple’s new green iPhone, even though I know it’s a marketing stunt. Here’s why experts say color is so seductive.

- When Apple unveiled the alpine green iPhone 13 this month, I instantly wanted it.
- About 85% of buying decisions are dictated by color, according to Pantone Color Institute.
- Apple has started releasing a mid-cycle color update as a way to entice shoppers like me.
As soon as Apple unveiled its latest iPhone this month, I knew I wanted it.
It was the same model Apple debuted last fall with identical functionality — but this version was dark green. Or, as Apple called it, alpine green.
But right as my brain signaled delight and desire over the new shade, another thought arose: was I being shamelessly seduced by a trillion-dollar tech giant into giving them more money?
The answer is probably yes — but I’m not alone.
Color plays a pivotal role in why we buy things
I’ve often felt a tinge of embarrassment over how easily swayed I could be by color and design.
When it comes to Apple products specifically, I remember feeling torn between the light blue and mint green versions of the third-generation iPod Nano in 2007.
But it turns out that my color-driven spending habits aren’t unique. Color influences up to 85% of product purchasing decisions, according to Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute.
“With about 80% of human experience filtered through our eyes, the first challenge is to grab the eye, and nothing does that better than the thoughtful use of color,” she told Insider via email.
The alpine green iPhone — available as both an iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro — was unveiled about six months after the original iPhone 13 lineup and about six months before the projected release of the iPhone 14.
That makes this a prime time to invigorate sales.
It’s a pattern Apple has now followed for the second year in a row: In April 2021, we were treated to a new colorway of the iPhone 12, that time in purple.
By releasing a new eye-catching color, Apple is hoping to stand out in a world where our attention spans have shriveled to mere seconds, according to Pressman.
“What brands offer needs to catch the eye of the consumer that much more quickly and be captivating enough to entice them to make a purchase — color is the ideal medium to create that engagement,” she said.
As for the new shade, Pressman said alpine green evokes some pleasant associations, like nature. Society’s FOCUS on sustainability and good health — which our brains might associate with the color green — has helped turn the shade into “a contemporary fashion staple,” she said.
Indeed, green is already popping up everywhere in 2022, from home decor to fashion. And Etsy chose emerald green as its color of the year for 2022. The color symbolizes harmony and growth, as well as royalty and refinement, Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy’s trend expert, wrote in a blog post.
Given green’s current popularity in design, it’s no surprise that the shade is now showing up on our tech gadgets.
The ubiquity of smartphones and wearables has made them like any other accessory — a way to show off your personality — which means color is starting to play a more important role in tech, said Reiko Morrison, the head of color, material, and finish in the consumer tech category at trend forecasting company WGSN.
There will always be people who prefer minimalist, muted tones, but there’s a strong movement toward vibrant colors for two key reasons, she told Insider by email.
One is Gen Z: young, digital-native generations may gravitate towards vivid colors that are similar to the colors they are used to seeing on screens. Morrison said she expects to continue seeing colors that became popular in the digital world applied to physical products.
But ultimately, color makes people happy — a feeling many people are seeking right now.
“Part of this is driven by our need to get out of the pandemic doldrums and cheer ourselves up,” she said. “Our response to color is very visceral and emotional, so the brighter hues tend to cheer us up instantly.”

I’m an artist. Most of these received significant creative input after I shot them, often editing them in my iPhone itself.
All these photos were shot in just seven days:
Clouds over June Lake, California as Seen from a Moving Car on US Route 395, California, 2:56 P.M., 17 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/4,762 at Auto ISO 80 (LV14.2). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
A great thing always about iPhone is that it shoots wide-open even in daylight. It has and needs no lens diaphragm. Its short 6.9mm actual (24mm equivalent) focal length 1× standard camera has plenty of depth of field at f/1.8, and shooting at f/1.8 in daylight means that the 1/4,762 shutter speed stopped all the motion. The foreground would have been horribly motion-blurred if I had tried to jam my EOS R6 up to the windshield, and good luck to me trying to see the EOS R6’s tiny dim LCD at arm’s length in a moving car!
Lukas, Redwood Motel, Bridgeport, California, 3:51 P.M., 17 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/60 at Auto ISO 125 (LV 7¼). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Among the many things that impress me about the iPhone is how I can completely remain in the moment and reach down with one hand and capture whatever’s going on. Unlike big cameras with tiny LCDs and finicky autofocus systems, the iPhone has a huge screen I can see from a few feet away and a LiDAR LASER-guided autofocus system. The iPhone’s AF system is superior to larger cameras in that it magically figures out. even in pitch black. that it’s a dog and focuses directly on his eyes, not his nose, letting me capture totally crazy action like an excited dog jumping all over me after he hasn’t seen me for three years.
It’s so sharp in the original file that you can see Lukas’ own view of me towering over him reflected in his eye. Check your monitor now; the image here should have every hair very clearly delineated around his eye. You may or may not see this depending on your monitor and its size; Windows PCs still seem to use obsolete 106 DPI displays compared to ultrafine iPhone, iPad and Mac Retina displays that run around 225-475 DPI. Each of these images has been reduced to 1,920 pixels wide from the original files.
Highlight inside an Abandoned Mine near Walker Lake, Bridgeport, California, 5:14 P.M, 17 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max camera system at its 2× setting (which magically crops from the 1× camera’s 48 MP sensor and 6.9mm lens to a full-frame equivalent of 48mm), f/1.8 at 1/64 at Auto ISO 80 (LV 8.0). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Abandoned Mine near Walker Lake, Bridgeport, California, 5:16 P.M., 17 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 0.5× (2.2mm actual or 13mm eq.) camera at f/2.2 at 1/155 at Auto ISO 40 (LV 10.9). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I first worked this in the free Snapseed app on my iPhone while on location, and later used Skylum Luminar Neo to take it further.
I love how my iPhone makes it trivial to jam it into any weird position and still be super-easy to compose on its huge, bright screen, especially with its ultra-ultra wide 0.5× (2.2mm actual or 13mm eq.) camera with which every millimeter of position changes the picture’s composition.
Also because of its super-short (2.2mm actual focal length) lens the iPhone‘s ultra-ultra wide 0.5× camera has almost limitless depth of field. No way was I going to crawl around in this mess with a big camera just inches off the ground and hope to keep it all in FOCUS.
Sunset, East of Walker Lake, Bridgeport, California, 6:01 P.M.17 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 0.5× (2.2mm actual or 13mm eq.) camera, f/2.2 at 1/369 at Auto ISO 40 (LV 12⅛). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I did most of the jacking of this image with the free Snapseed app on my iPhone at the scene, and then worked it some more in Skylum Luminar Neo.

Virginia Creek Settlement Restaurant, Bridgeport, California, 7:19 P.M. 17 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 0.5× (2.2mm actual or 13mm eq.) camera, f/2.2 at 1/40 at Auto ISO 1,250 (LV 4.0). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I fiddled with this with the free Snapseed app on my iPhone at the location and then more back in my studio in Skylum Luminar Neo.
Sunrise over Mono Lake as Seen from Conway Summit, 6:49 A.M., 18 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 3× (9mm actual or 77mm eq.) camera, f/2.8 at 1/99 at Auto ISO 125 (LV 9.3). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Sunrise over Mono Lake as Seen from Conway Summit, 7:05 A.M., 18 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 3× (9mm actual or 77mm eq.) camera, f/2.8 at 1/247 at Auto ISO 32 (LV 12.6). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Yes, these are similar images, but they are also very different. My website, my rules.
Pine Cone, Poole Power Plant Road, Mammoth Lakes, California, 12:24 P.M., 18 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/1,495 at Auto ISO 80 (LV 12½). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
With its larger 48 MP sensor the iPhone 14 Pro Max now also has a longer lens to retain a similar 24mm equivalent 1× angle of view. For the first time I often notice background optical defocus effects in regular shooting, as you can see here and at the dog closeup photos above and below. This defocus (bokeh) is what’s coming from the lens; it’s not an electronic portrait mode.
Brick Building, Bodie, California, 3:24 P.M., 18 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/3,247 at Auto ISO 80 (LV 13⅔). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Very Cute Great Pyrenees Puppy with Tongue, Bridgeport, California, 5:14 P.M., 18 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/810 at Auto ISO 80 (LV 11⅔). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
The iPhone rules for these sorts of photos, where I easily can see its huge screen and motor away at 10 FPS with the phone in one hand and petting the pups with the other. This could be my favorite photo from this week of shooting.
Also notice how the iPhone nailed autofocus in this fast-paced peppy puppy pandemonium. It nailed the eyes and didn’t get sidetracked with the nose or the background, as a Nikon Z would do!
The defocused background is a native optical phenomenon, not an electronic effect. The longer normal lens (6.9mm) in the 1× camera today shows definite background defocus in closeups.
Redwood Motel, Bridgeport, California, 6:34 P.M. — when everything changed, 20 October 2019. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 0.5× (2.2mm actual or 13mm eq.) camera, f/2.2 at 1/60 at Auto ISO 800 (LV 5.2). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Moon and Stars over Redwood Motel Room 15, Bridgeport, California, 5:19 A.M., 19 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 hand-held at 1/2 second at Auto ISO 8,000 (LV.3¾ IPS; that’s LV minus 3¾!). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I went outside at 5:19 A.M. in the morning, looked up and saw the moon over our motel! I whipped out my iPhone and made a snap, and it looked exactly as this scene looked to my eyes! The iPhone 14 Pro Max is astonishing.
While my iPhone caught this scene exactly as it looked to my eyes, it was very dark, with an inky black sky, hours before dawn. That’s not how I want to show it, so I used the Perfectly Clear plug-in in Photoshop CS6 (2012) to lighten it up and make it much more exciting — exactly as I wanted it to look rather than how it actually looked. The red light on the foreground is from car taillights of others in our group who were ready to head out.
Back in olden days I’d have needed a tripod to make a half-hour exposure at f/4.5 on Velvia 50 to get this same exposure (allowing for reciprocity failure), and even if I didn’t have to set up a tripod I’d have missed the rest of the group because we all took off six minutes after this at 5:25 A.M. to catch the 7:10 A.M. sunrise down at Mono Lake’s South Tufa.
Even with a half-hour exposure at f/4.5 it would have been tough to get both the sky and motel in FOCUS at the same time. The iPhone 14 Pro Max has much more depth of field due to its much shorter 6.9mm actual focal length lens. Velvia also would turn very green with a long exposure, and other films are similarly difficult. With my iPhone I can shoot things like this that simply couldn’t be caught on film under real-world time constraints like this; this was a hand-held grab shot as we headed out.
Sunrise, South Tufa, Mono Lake, California, 7:35 A.M., 19 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 0.5× (2.2mm actual or 13mm eq.) camera, f/2.2 at 1/445 at Auto ISO 40 (LV 12.4). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
While I had my EOS R6 and RF 15-30mm IS STM around my neck, I wasn’t about to climb down on my belly on these rocks, and I certainly wasn’t going to try to look at the R6’s dinky screen compared how easy it is to drop my arm down with my iPhone, whose brilliant huge screen makes this all easy. I’m very close to the rocks; the ultra-ultrawide lens makes it seem like I’m much higher, but my iPhone is actually pretty far down in the rocks to bring the foreground much closer.
Just for laughs here’s how it looked on my iPhone 14 Pro Max screen as I shot it:
Dancing Inferno off Parker Lake Road, Mammoth Lakes, California, 9:52 A.M., 19 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 0.5× (2.2mm actual or 13mm eq.) camera, f/2.2 at 1/972 at Auto ISO 50 (LV 13.2). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Much of the magic here comes from, in addition to paying rapt attention to composition, adding saturation and vignetting in the free Snapseed app on my iPhone while I was shooting and sending the images to friends back home.
Aspens, Little Walker River Road, Bridgeport, California, 5:18 P.M., 19 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/2,070 at Auto ISO 80 (LV 13.0). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Most of this I did in the free Snapseed app on my iPhone, and later brought up the shadows in Skylum Luminar Neo.
Will Works His Fire, Bridgeport, California, 6:32 P.M., 19 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/60 at Auto ISO 640 (LV 4.9). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
This is as shot, except for cropping and using Skylum Luminar Neo’s Erase tool to remove some background distractions.
iPhone easily handles this crazy lighting; point and shoot. Good luck with reportage futzing with a LEICA M’s manual FOCUS and center-weighted-only metering!
Silver Maple Inn, Bridgeport, California, 6:38 P.M., 19 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/30 at Auto ISO 1,000 (LV 3¼). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
The Milky Way as seen from Twin Lakes Road, Bridgeport, California, 9:35 P.M., 19 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 for 10 seconds (tripod) at Auto ISO 12,500 (LV.8.6, that’s LV minus 8.6!). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
To Shoot The Milky Way with an iPhone, I used my Oben CT-2491 Carbon-Fibre Tripod with my Manfrotto 410 (née Bogen 3275) Geared Head and Oben SPA-1000 iPhone adapter to hold it still, but it also works simply hand-holding it braced against something. By default iPhone will try to use flash, so turn that off by tapping the flash icon. Now that the flash is off, you’ll see ” ☽ 3s ” at the top (held vertically). For the cleanest image we want the longest exposure, so tap the little ” ^ ” symbol at the center top (held vertically) then along the bottom tap the ☽ moon (time exposure) icon and slide the time all the way to 30 seconds. Tap and release the ◉ shutter button, wait 30 seconds, and you’ve got your shot. If you hand-hold, the default exposure is about 2 seconds and the maximum time is about only 10 seconds.
The iPhone knows from its acceleration sensors if it’s on a tripod or not, and only allows times longer than 10 seconds if you’re on a tripod. It’s also brilliant in knowing that the longest any normal person will hold an iPhone for a long exposure is only a few seconds, and adjusts accordingly hand-held. Even though you’ll get something even handheld for just a few seconds, longer exposures collect more light and result in more detail and less noise.
While the indicated exposure times on the time exposure scale refer to the total time iPhone is exposing and counting down (like 30 seconds maximum in the shot above), the effective exposure time recorded in EXIF data is less (10 seconds in the shot above). This is because iPhone is using magic to capture and combine many, many separate shorter, sharper shots into the one file it saves.
The Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max shot this as it looked to our eyes: dim. Most of this I edited in the free Snapseed app on my iPhone. Back at my studio I amped it even further in Skylum Luminar Neo. The actual Milky Way is very dim to our eyes, against a sea of stars. My iPhone caught enough invisible detail that I could pull it out later. Bravo!
My newest Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max is vastly superior to my iPhone 11 Pro Max I used to make a similar shot back in 2019. My 2019 shot was astounding back in 2019 when I’d never seen a phone catch the Milky May before, but to be honest it was a very flat image that I forced into monochrome and then colorized to blue for effect — still a monochrome image, but oh the memories of that spot.
Now the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max sees in color under starlight. which is something even our eyes can’t do.
Screen Shot: You can see the stars live! bigger.
Valley View with Dramatic Sunset Clouds, Yosemite National Park, California, 4:16 P.M., 21 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera (equivalent to a little cropping from the ZEISS 50mm f/4 DISTAGON on HASSELBLAD 6×6), f/1.8 at 1/1,062 at Auto ISO 80 (LV 12.0). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I’m so bad. Artists know the only rule is that there are no rules. First I fiddled with this in the free Snapseed app in my iPhone right as I made the image. I amped it up, but the sky was blank.
No problem; Skylum Luminar Neo made it trivially easy to add a sky. I added vignetting for emphasis and removed the boring left side and empty bottom and cropped it into a tighter square.
Here’s what came out of the iPhone, which is exactly as it looked to my eye — but not to my imagination:
It’s not just the crazy clouds and colors I added; cropping what’s not needed both horizontally and vertically let what is important grow and make for a much stronger image.
Laugh all you want, but artists have been adding skies to landscapes forever, and photographers have been adding clouds to photos since the 1800’s using different optically-printed negatives on different masked sections of printing paper. This is nothing new; back in olden days plates and film were only sensitive to blue and ultraviolet light and it was nearly impossible to get a sky to appear in the same image as the foreground.
The Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy as seen from Stoneman Meadow, Yosemite National Park, California, 8:56 P.M., 21 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 10 seconds (tripod) at Auto ISO 12,500 (LV.8⅔, or minus 8⅔. That’s dark!). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
The original iPhone image was rather dark and flat, sort of as it all looked to our eyes, so I used a simple curves adjustment layer to taste in Photoshop CS6 (2012).
I was astonished that my iPhone is able to photograph the Andromeda Galaxy (the diagonal blob center right). I’ve never see a phone do that!
Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park, California, 12:32 P.M., 22 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/569 at Auto ISO 40 (LV 12¾), split-toned print. tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I used the free Snapseed app on my iPhone to tweak and send this to my friends while I was still there, and then fine-tuned it further with Skylum Luminar Neo.
The Half Dome in Clouds as Seen across Ahwahnee Meadow, Yosemite National Park, California, 3:18 P.M., 22 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 3× (9mm actual or 77mm eq.) camera, f/2.8 at 1/840 at Auto ISO 32 (LV 14⅓), split-toned print. tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I first worked this in the free Snapseed app on my iPhone while at the location, and then later in Skylum Luminar Neo.
This crop is equivalent to a minor crop from the common ZEISS 150mm f/4 SONNAR on HASSELBLAD 6×6. Sitting in my armchair I realize that a 180mm f/4 SONNAR would actually be more equivalent to this crop, but Ansel or I never carry the 180mm lens. Everything in HASSELBLAD is so sharp that one simply carries the 150mm f/4 SONNAR and crops a little if needed, rather than carry an extra “in between” lens “just in case.” All Ansel every carried were his 50mm, 80mm, 150mm and maybe 250mm, and he was all set for everything.
With iPhone, do we still need HASSELBLAD?
Maple Leaves, Yosemite Valley Lodge at the Falls, Yosemite National Park, California, 7:16 A.M., 23 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/60 at Auto ISO 800 (LV 4.6). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
Yellow Dawn, Leidig Meadow at Sunrise, Yosemite National Park, California, 7:36 A.M., 23 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 at 1/121 at Auto ISO 100 (LV 8.6). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I may have tried to hand-hold my Tiffen 0.9 gradiated neutral-density filter in front of my iPhone; I forget. I did use a grad filter on my EOS R6 and RF 15-30mm IS STM which needed it for this shot, but generally the iPhone weaves such magic with its always-active HDR that I doubt I did.
I shot this with both my EOS R6 and RF 15-30mm IS STM and iPhone 14 Pro Max. I prefer this iPhone image because its aspect ratio is better for this subject and I just happened to find a better compositional location to hold my iPhone than I did with my R6. Everything about this shot (and most shots) is the composition of where each of the elements are placed in the image, which varies wildly with changes of just millimeters of position when you’re as close as I was. Tripods never would have worked here; I don’t have a 3D micro head to let me place the camera precisely in three dimensions as I can with my arm.
I used Skylum Luminar Neo to add wow, especially adding punch to the yellow leaves and to adjust the shadows and highlights and add emphasis with vignetting. I also used Perfectly Clear since it helped as well with levels. There were no clouds and no detail in the sky, so I added a sky with Neo, which was trivially easy. Neo also made it easy to remove distracting leaves and twigs in the foreground.
This is art; I’m not trying to copy nature. The scene as we came across it was pretty gray and boring, but I knew I could turn it into something cool.
Frosty Green Leaf by the Banks of the Merced River, Yosemite National Park, California, 8:58 A.M., 23 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max camera system at its 1× setting (which magically cropped to a full-frame equivalent of 24mm from the 0.5× camera with its 2.2mm lens because only it can FOCUS this close), f/2.2 at 1/99 at Auto ISO 200 (LV 7.9). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max has essentially boundless macro ability. Just hold it up to anything, select your zoom level, and it just shoots regardless of how close you are. Bravo! I remember when lenses had ” macro ” ranges where you had to move slider switches just to swap to the macro mode. That was a pain!!
The iPhone plays tricks in the background to make the magic happen so we don’t need to move any switches. Do to the physics of optics, shorter lenses FOCUS much, much closer than longer lenses. No worries, even if you’re set at 1×, 2× or 3× or longer and get closer than about 7″/18cm (the close-FOCUS limit of the 1× and 2× cameras, or about 2’/80cm for the 3× camera), then the iPhone silently swaps to the 0.5× camera that can FOCUS ultra-close (or swaps to the 1× camera for the 3× setting between about 2′ to 7″ or 80 to 18 cm) and crops the image to the zoom level you’ve chosen, and then interpolates (upsamples) it to the usual 12 MP (4,032 × 3,024 pixels) image size, and no one except some of us notice.
Upsampling from what was actually only a quarter of the pixels of the 0.5× camera (3 MP), the iPhone uses some brilliant tricks, like what looks like vectorizing the edges, so in this case we lose no sharpness on the edges of all the ice crystals. Its algorithms are doing a bang-up job vectorizing what it can so straight lines and edges stay ultra sharp, which works great on the frosty crystals here. The only way we really know what camera was used is when we see the actual optical focal length listed in Photo Mechanic or under Photos (tap the ⓘ photo info icon).
In other words, Apple figured all this out for us and just does it, giving use an ultra-close image that’s super sharp, all snapped while wearing gloves in the freezing dawn.
If you want to keep the full 48 MP resolution of the 1× camera, you can have your iPhone warn you that it’s cropping from the 0.5× camera if you set SETTINGS CAMERA MACRO CONTROL ON. in which it will show a yellow circle with a flower in it to let you know it’s cropping from the 0.5× camera. It doesn’t show when it crops from the 1× camera when you’re too close in the 3× mode because the 1× camera has 48 MP so you’re not really losing anything cropping from it to make 3×.
I worked this in Skylum Luminar Neo to emphasize the leaf. All the paragraphs above were covering what the iPhone does in the background all by itself.
Downtown Los Angeles as Seen through the Tinted Windshield of a Moving Car on an Open Freeway, I-5 South Just past West 4th Street, 8:13 P.M., 23 October 2022. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max 1× (6.9mm actual or 24mm eq.) camera, f/1.8 hand-held at 1/17 at Auto ISO 1,600 (LV 1.8). tech details. bigger or fit-to-screen.
I’m absolutely astounded by my iPhone. No matter how difficult or foolish are my attempts to shoot things that were previously unphotographable, like this hand-held shot out of a tinted moving car window at night on the freeway, my iPhone just gets the shot. Heck, most of our photos of things that held still with the first DSLRs 20 years ago were barely this sharp most of the time!
Not bad for seven days of shooting.
I buy only from these approved sources. I can’t vouch for ads below.
Did you look at my photos? They look pretty good to me!
I love my iPhone 14 Pro Max so much I bought an iPhone 14 Pro and another iPhone 14 Pro Max for other members of my family. They are this good. Better than any other camera, every photo is sharp, in FOCUS, well exposed and has great color. You have to work really hard to take a bad picture with iPhone. It’s astonishing how it just gets sharp pictures regardless of the difficulty of the situation, and is remarkable in how naturally it renders all light and shadow, regardless of how difficult or harsh is the lighting. No other camera makes this so simple. What more could you need to know?
Better than any of my exotic Nikons, Canons, Sonys, Fujis or even any of my immortal LEICAs is that my iPhone is always in my 24/7/365 and can be drawn and fired faster than any other camera, so I never miss a shot. My iPhone camera has better color rendition than any of my Sonys, Fujis or LEICAs.
Think about it, and it becomes obvious that the iPhone 14 Pro Max is the most advanced consumer product ever created. I’m serious, think of anything technical ever created, be it a consumer, commercial or military product or home-built contraption. Nothing has more kinds of advanced technology and replaces more other products in a smaller package that works so well, is so beautiful that it looks as if it was stolen from the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and is affordable by such a large portion of the world’s population.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max has four visible light cameras. All use 12 MP sensors, except the 1× camera which uses a 48 MP sensor.
The 14 Pro Max camera is significantly improved over my old 13 Pro Max, especially in low light and at zoom ranges between 1× and 2.99× where the 14 Pro Max’ 48 MP sensor significantly improves sharpness for images stored at 12 MP. The 2× setting is a 12 MP digital crop from the 48 MP 1× camera, brilliant!
The biggest flaw in the previous iPhone 13 Pro Max was that its longer 3× camera forced the 1× camera to use digital zoom to stretch all the way to 2.99×, where older cameras like the 11 Pro Max used a 2× telephoto camera that had 12 MP at 2×. The 13 Pro Max had only three (sensor) Megapixels when set to 2× digital zoom, and only 1.3 MP at 2.99× digital zoom that were upsampled to 12 MP. Although I never heard any complaints from anyone about the 13 Pro Max, for serious shooters like me, my 14 Pro Max now has a full 12 MP at its 2× and 3× settings, a huge improvement in real-world sharpness I can see. Bravo!
The extra resolution of the 48 MP 1× camera often leads to sharper 12 MP photos at 1× than earlier iPhones with simple 12 MP sensors. This is because the extra pixels give the iPhone 14 Pro Max more data with which to craft the final 12 MP image, helping to work around the softening effects of Bayer interpolation.
The 48 MP sensor uses a modified Bayer array where each group of four detectors senses the same color. This reduces the chroma resolution compared to most other 48 MP Bayer sensors, and helps low-light and overall performance. Apple knows what they’re doing better than anyone, so don’t read too much into this. The system works great in every light and gives a lot more sharpness from 1× to 2.99× compared to the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
All images are saved as 12 MP JPGs or HEIF, unless you choose Settings Camera Formats Apple ProRAW ON and then Settings Camera Formats ProRAW Resolution 48 MP, which will save a 48 MP DNG — but only at 48 MP for the 1× camera. I never use DNG; I always shoot HEIC in-camera and save them on my Mac as JPGs, and obviously you can do whatever you want.
Most people in the developed world seem to own an iPhone. iPhones take more pictures every day than any other kind of camera and we all know how well everything from Apple works, and just as important is how great is the support from Apple Care ((800) APL-CARE in the USA) if we get stuck.
Especially when I’m shooting any assignment with my big camera, I almost always instinctively draw my iPhone instead for any shot which requires an unusual or difficult point of view, casual macro, any kind of video, or if I need to grab something happening and unfolding fast right in front of me. My iPhone is always ready for anything and its huge screen, bigger, brighter and more accurate than any other camera, makes it trivially easy to see what I’m shooting from any position or any angle, forwards or backwards.
There are many things for which I need a big camera, like telephoto shots at 85mm or longer without digital zoom, field sports, birds and aircraft in flight, wildlife, formal portraits, school plays, anything I’d do on a tripod, formal landscapes, product photos, formal interiors, anything I’m going to exhibit at extreme magnifications, anything that needs daytime fill-flash or studio strobes (which means all my studio work and and serious macro shots), anything in dimmer light where I want to shoot at the lowest possible ISO, anything that needs exposures longer than 30 seconds and anything about which I’m investing a lot of planning and attention. iPhone excels at grab shots, capturing life as it’s lit, video and seeing things from different points of view.
While the 14 Pro Max really does have 48 MP for its 1× camera (more than anything from Canon or Nikon), it still only has 12 MP at its 0.5×, 2× and 3× settings.
Large cameras have technical advantages when looking at their images at extreme magnifications, like on my desktop 4K 55″ monitor two feet (80 cm) away or printed 8 feet tall. iPhone images may not look as great as images from larger cameras at very large magnifications, but at the normal sizes almost everyone uses for most pictures, this doesn’t matter.
The iPhone has much cleaner images than you’d expect for having a smaller sensor than full-frame cameras. It does this by using very low optimum ISOs in good light, ranging from ISO 25 to ISO 50 depending on which camera is in use. Sadly most big cameras never go below ISO 100 by default in good light, while by starting at ISO 25 to ISO 50 with its fast lenses iPhone gives wonderfully clean and detailed images in good light. Also amazing is how great iPhone looks at higher ISOs as you saw in my Sample Images. Apple works a lot of magic.
While I love my Canons, Nikons, LEICAs and HASSELBLADs, I always carry my iPhone because it does some things better than any of them. An iPhone should be in every photographer’s iPhone doesn’t replace a big camera for serious shooters, but it certainly adds a lot to any assignment, especially for candid, casual and record shots of just about anything. Even if I didn’t love my iPhone shots on their own, nothing else works as well for documenting a shoot with time, location and what’s going on, or what was my setup and lighting.

New since iPhone 13 Pro Max intro top
1× camera now has 48 Megapixel resolution, up from 12 MP. This is higher than anything ever from Canon or Nikon except for the discontinued Canon 5DS/R! HA!
Much larger 1× main camera sensor, a mythical “one inch sensor” is now only 20% longer in each dimension.
Even better low light performance, which I see in my time exposures of the Milky Way, panoramic shots made indoors at night and hand-held snaps under moonlight. Apple claims the 1×, 2× and 3× cameras are twice as sensitive and the 0.5× camera is three times as sensitive as the 13 Pro Max, which seem about right.
The 1× camera now has a much longer lens to retain a similar 24mm equivalent field of view.
The 1× camera’s longer 6.89mm f/1.78 lens (up from 5.7mm f/1.5) now has definite optical background defocus effects at closer distances. This is separate from the PORTRAIT mode with its electronically softened backgrounds. For comparison, the iPhone XS Max (2018-2019) had only a 6mm lens as its telephoto 2× lens!
The 0.5× camera now uses a 2.2mm f/2.2 lens, up from 1.57mm f/1.8, and a larger sensor.
The new, bigger camera lenses poke out slightly more from the front of the iPhone and are slightly larger in diameter than they were in the 13 Pro Max, and thus the protruding lens guard of Apple‘s leather case now pokes out slightly more. The only way I noticed that the case’s squarish cutout is now slightly larger and thus extends slightly farther down is that it interferes with my phone sitting flat against the wireless charging stand I’ve used since 2018. It charges just fine, just that the phone sits on it a bit funny.
No more delays before we can post or forward just-shot photos. The 12 Pro Max and 13 Pro Max were often plagued with long grayed-out wait times as just-shot images were perfected before they were ready to see or send. Thank goodness the 14 Pro Max never asks me to wait before my images are developed and ready. Bravo!
Previous iPhone video has been so well stabilized it hasn’t required any gimbals for superb hand-held results even while walking. Now a new “Action Video Mode” allows full stabilization even while running or dealing with extreme camera motion. It works by allowing extreme electronic stabilization by using the entire sensor and returning a cropped result. This has been a standard technique (extreme stabilization using smaller cropped areas) in professional video for decades.
Face ID unlocks in any orientation. No longer does it only work held vertically. Bravo!
Brightest screen ever in a phone or camera, and it looks fantastic. It will dim after a while due to heat if used at full brightness for too long outdoors in Light mode (try Dark mode in sunlight), but for short checks it’s amazing how bright it gets when you need it.
“Always On” screen.
Satellite Emergency Rescue 911 text mode communicates directly by satellite if you need help and have no cell coverage.
iOS 16 adds one-touch ability to select, extract, copy and paste subjects or remove backgrounds.
Rear “flash” LED can now FOCUS to optimize its angle as you zoom.
My 14 Pro Max seems to have even better GPS reception than my 13 Pro Max. The special heat-reflective metallic layers embedded in my car’s window glass also attenuate GPS signals. Earlier iPhones often had location errors of a few hundred feet inside my car, while my 14 Pro Max finally seems fine!
The hole in the front glass for the earpiece speaker has become so small that it’s invisible without a magnifier or very good eyes. It moved up to become a microscopic slot in the center at the very top edge (held vertically) where the glass meets the stainless steel bezel. Its so tiny that we don’t lose any screen space for it.
Good intro top
Great photos: always sharp, well-exposed, in-FOCUS and with great color balance. Bravo!
Spectacular real-world video. While I have big cameras that can give better still pictures under some conditions, unless you’re a Hollywood DP and spend a day lighting your set just right, the magic inside the iPhone tames real-world lighting for better video than I’ve ever seen from any other video camera. Pro, studio video and digital cinema cameras demand that you light your sets well, while iPhone magically applies HDR to regular video to prevent blown-out foreheads and lost shadows. iPhone does the same for video as it does for stills: tames and makes real-world lighting look wonderful!
No gimbals needed for video; the iPhone’s incredible stabilization makes things shot while walking, running or riding look like they were shot on a dolly on rails. I’m serious: while your screen image while rolling will bounce all over, the video you save locks-down as if it was shot with a fluid head. Even zoomed in to 9× telephoto where my subject is a random distant aircraft for which I can’t hold my phone steady or even keep it in the frame, it plays-back as if I was some sort of genius. Try it; what it records is so much better than what you see on the screen live.
13mm ultra-ultrawide, 24mm, 50mm and 77mm equivalent fixed lenses.
4:3 “Ideal Format” aspect ratio.
Time exposures work miracles with motion. I can shoot out of a car at night and somehow it always pulls off sharp images.
Super fast charging. Mine charges at a maximum measured rate of 26.5W, which will mostly charge a mostly dead battery in half an hour.
Almost eternal battery life. We all use our phone differently, and for me it’s unusual that I ever use even half its charge by the end of the day. Of course this varies with how much you use it and how close you are to a cellular tower or Wi-Fi.
Precise construction quality better than a LEICA. Crafted of solid stainless steel and hardened glass — not plastic.
Easy to use in total darkness. Unlike big cameras, the three side buttons are easily found by feel and every other control is clearly illuminated on-screen — no more holding flashlights in our teeth to set our cameras in the dark!
Displays and playback rotate with the camera.
High-quality technical support at (800) APL-CARE.
Bad intro top
Zoom options of 0.5×, 1×, 2× and 3× cover the image, making it clumsy to try to compose out to that edge when we can’t see what’s going on:
Missing intro top
No long lenses. Its longest lens is only a 77mm equivalent. While it has digital zoom beyond this for grab shots, sharpness falls off fast. You need a regular camera for 85mm and longer shots without digital zoom, at least for serious work.
Can’t really shoot full-resolution macro with its longer settings. Instead, really close macro shots usually crop from the 0.5x camera. For serious macro I still need my big camera, while for casual shots iPhone is awesome.
No built-in flash, just a bright continuous-light LED. It’s not bright enough to use as fill flash outdoors — but Apple‘s magic in taming difficult light makes the iPhone camera work just about as well without fill flash.
Can’t readily be used with external flash or studio strobes. so?
“Always On” display isn’t. Mine turns off after a while on my wireless charger overnight, or if I walk away. It always wakes right up when I get close, but it still needs a clock app to work as a nightstand clock. from Apple about the Always On screen.
No exposures longer than 30 seconds.
No Automatic Leveling mode.

Every iPhone has about as many cameras as a spacecraft.
In addition to an infra-red LASER RADAR (LiDAR) 3D sensor array on the back and an infra-red emitter and camera system on the front (behind the screen) for Face ID, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has four separate visible-light color cameras: one on the front (behind the screen) for selfies, and three on the back:
