iPhone 12 Pro Max Still Can’t Use 2.5x Optical Zoom in Dark

Apple made Night Mode available for selfies and ultra-wide cameras this year on the new iPhone 12 series. Until now, it was only available for the main camera.

But Apple also announced a new 2.5x telephoto lens on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which many expected would also be able to take pictures in Night mode, despite Apple’s silence on the matter. The expectations did not come true. Just like the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro series, the iPhone 12 Pro Max prefers to use the 2.5x digital zoom on the main camera instead of using the full 2.5x optical zoom.

Similar camera behavior was seen on the iPhone 12 Pro. The 12-megapixel TV camera sometimes works at night, depending on the available lighting. If the brightness drops below some fixed point, the phone uses its main camera and does digital zoom instead. And this is due to the difference between the main camera and the zoom camera, in all cases the main camera sensor is larger than the TV camera sensor, which is why many phones use a larger sensor in low light. This situation was typical for the iPhone 7 Plus, and now for the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
