A goal of the latest “Shot on iPhone’ collection seems to be demonstrating how great holiday pictures could look.

“New camera features including Smart HDR bring better highlight and shadow detail across photos. iPhone’s Portrait mode adds a dramatic background blur, and the larger and deeper pixels improve low-light performance in photos,” Apple pointed out in a statement.

These features are on full display in the images Apple chose for its new holiday-themed collection. Some of the entries are:

More about “Shot on iPhone”

The images that Apple shared today, and the previous collections, are ones the photographers have submitted via various social media services. All that’s necessary for consideration is including the #shotoniphone hashtag. Or you can get more specific with ShotOniPhoneXS, #ShotOniPhoneMax or #shotoniphonexr.

This isn’t just for professional photographers. Anyone who thinks they’ve taken an especially good picture with their iPhone should share it with Apple.
