iOS 15 enables five predefined photo shooting setups for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro:

  • 1. Standard Style (Tone: 0 | Warmth: 0)

    This is the default true to life look that’s naturally produced by the iPhone camera. It’s balanced meaning that both Tone and Warmth have 0 adjustments.

  • 2. Rich Contrast Style (Tone: -50 | Warmth: 0)

    This setup promotes darker shadows, richer colors and stronger contrast. It’s recommended if you want to achieve a dramatic look.

  • 3. Vibrant Style (Tone: +50 | Warmth: 0)

    A preset that promotes wonderfully bright and vivid colors. You should use it if you want to create a brilliant but yet natural look.

  • 4. Warm Style (Tone: 0 | Warmth: +50)

    This iPhone 13 Photographic Style adds a warm look to your photo with the help of golden undertones.

  • 5. Cool Style (Tone: 0 | Warmth: -50)

    If you want to obtain cooled down photos from your iPhone 13 camera you should pick this preset that uses blue undertones.
