How to shoot Night mode portrait photos with the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max

Must read

With the launch of Apple iPhone 7 Plus, Apple was the first smartphone brand to bring portrait photography with a substantial depth-of-field to smartphones. The company used a secondary telephoto lens and software processing to differentiate between the background and foreground. As always, Android smartphone makers were quick to follow and almost every smartphone maker started adding the feature in even their cheapest smartphones.

Similarly, the Night mode photography feature was popularised by Google with its Pixel smartphones and other Android smartphone makers followed suit. Apple was a little late to the party and added the feature with the iPhone 11 series.

Now, with iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone Pro Max, the company has taken both Portrait mode photography and Night mode photography to a new level. The new LIDAR sensor along with a larger sensor dedicated for Portrait photography further allows the smartphone’s camera to see better in dark situations and capture good portrait photos even in poorly-lit conditions.

But how to capture Night mode portrait photos using iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max? To answer that, here’s our step-by-step guide:

First and the most important thing, Apple does not offer any manual Night mode like Android smartphones. The Night mode on Apple iPhone triggers automatically when the smartphone detects low light in the surrounding. Same is the case with Night mode portrait photos. Users simply need to select Portrait mode in the camera app and the phone will automatically decide whether the situation requires Night mode or not. Here’s how to do it.


Open Camera app on your iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max smartphone


Swipe right and choose Portrait mode and follow the on-screen instructions on how to set up the subject


Tap on the Shutter button and keep your hands steady to take Night mode portraits.
