The iPhone 7 Plus has the same 28mm-equivalent, 12-megapixel lens as the iPhone 7, but it adds a second 12-megapixel telephoto lens. This allows for up to 2x optical zoom, and up to 10x digital zoom. The front-facing camera on both versions was upgraded to a 7-megapixel sensor. The improved aperture and the new lens, taken together, make the iPhone 7 Plus camera a far more capable tool for both amateur and pro photographers.

The iPhone 7 Plus uses machine learning to recognize people's faces, do a depth-map of their position, and then artfully blur out the background behind the people you're photographing. This feature, called Depth (because it simulates extra shallow depth), will be available as a software update and won't ship immediately with the phone.

However, do you know how to use the second camera on your iPhone 7 Plus? To select the camera with the 56mm f2.8 "telephoto" lens, open Camera and tap the circle icon above the on-screen shutter button that says 1x. It will then say change to show 2x, which lets you know you're shooting at 56mm.

On top of that, Apple are also adding a new camera mode, portrait, which provides a shallow depth-of-field effect — the background gets artfully blurred, while your subject stays in clear and in focus. However, don't be surprised if you can't find this mode yet — it isn't shipping on the iPhone, and instead will be added in a software update later this year.
