The City – A New Apple Ad Promoting The iPhone 7 Plus Portrait Mode
We spotted the new ad on Apple’s official YouTube channel and find it very convincing. It’s called “The City” and features a young Asian couple meeting in a crowded city and highlighting each other with the help of this iPhone 7 Plus Camera option. Apple describes the Portrait Mode, as a feature that allows you to “focus on what you love and leave everything else behind.”
The musical background of “The City” movie is provided by Walter Martin, featuring Karen O. with the record “Sing to Me”. Apple has invested a lot of effort in promoting the Portrait Mode, to its potential customers, especially because this new feature was available with delay. The Bokeh effect became available only since iOS 10.1, a month after the release of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and the release of the 10th iOS generation.

Tip: To capture great images with the depth effect make sure that you are outdoor and have a lot of light. Our test have shown that Portrait Mode delivers low quality shots indoors, in low light environment. We do expect that Apple will stabilize the zoom lens and increase the aperture to make this feature even greater, with the upcoming iPhone iteration.
Fact: Did you know that Apple plans to bring a vertical dual-lens orientation for its upcoming anniversary device, anticipated as iPhone 8?
