Last year in September, Apple launched iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR that take advantage of hardware as well as software for computational photography.
The technology combines multiple photos at different exposure rates to create one image, and the camera on iPhone XS series and iPhone XR are significant improvements over iPhone X and iPhone 8 series.
