The new iPhone will include pet portrait mode so you can take stunning pics of your doggos
Imagine the Grams.
A few years back, Apple launched the iPhone's portrait mode.
It was a way of taking photos that focused on the person at the centre of the snap, blurring out the background, lighting up the subject, and basically making whoever was in the image look 10x better than they do in real life.
It's a decent enough feature, one that has revolutionised the way we take photos of our mates for the 87th time as they stand in their house porch waiting on their FreeNow to bring them to the club.
And now, we're going to be able to use portrait mode on our pets too.
Well, if you fancy shelling out for a new iPhone, that is.
V IMPORTANT: PET PORTRAIT MODE NOW OFFICIALLY A THING

Apple announced their eagerly anticipated iPhone 11 yesterday.
Along with the device came an abundance of additions that made it a pretty decent phone (new powerful charger, come at me), but the main feature that has got everybody hyped up is the new and improved portrait mode - that now recognises pets' faces.
Adorable? You bet. Absolutely necessary? You know it.
Regular old portrait mode did work on non-humans in some cases, however now the feature has been optimised to ensure that users can get the best possible shots of their doggo.
After all, animals have faces too.
And those faces deserve to be detected.
