iOS 11 Developer Preview: all the improvements to the camera app so far!

iOS 11 Developer Preview: all the improvements to the camera app so far!

So, yesterday, Apple kicked off WWDC 2017 with an exciting keynote, revealing a bunch of new stuff, iOS 11 included. Now, the operating system is not ready for prime time yet, as it will launch this Fall with the new iPhones, but a Developer Preview build is available for those who have developer accounts. Worry not, if you are itching to give it a spin, a public beta will also come out soon!

Among the many improvements, we’ve got a bunch of upgrades to the Camera and Photos apps, which will pretty much nullify our need of some 3rd party apps as well as improve our shooting experience. Let’s take a deeper look at them!

Guys, did you know that iOS 11 has a dark mode? Go check EverythingApplePro's video for more info. It can be accessed through Settings>accessibility> display accomodations

It's not proper as one would expect, but it's still better than nothing....

The iPhone 7 has a dark mode. But its not very good compared to Ultra Power Saving Mode as a example.

Also its strange there's no way to quickly change video resolution and fps in the camera app

I wonder if Apple will switch to AV1+Opus next year (the open alternative to HEVC backed by Amazon, AMD, ARM, Cisco, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, Netflix, Nvidia, ...)

Or if they'll ignore it like they are doing with Vulkan

Also I hope Apple switching to HEIC will get the rest of the industry to sort out what's replacing JPEG
Google's WebP look's promising, but HEIC does offer more features

I have a question. Why is iOS 11 a major update when every change maybe minus the control center is minor? Why can't they update the camera app as the year goes along? why is this such a big deal? Somebody help me here

The biggest thing that bugs me is the way ios names the photos as 'img_0003'. Just name it using date and time so photos are easier to find and organize when backed up
