Apple has developed the camera this year, 3 cameras, a 12MP main camera, 12MP 2.5X Zoom, and 12MP U-Wide.
It delivers really very good quality from the main camera with caring of details and colors.
Ultra-wide Camera 12Mp keeps the details, it’s more yellowish.
For the zooming camera, it did a good job.
In light mode, it was a very satisfying image, with a lot of details and you will get a clear image.

The best performance you gonna get from chipset on a smartphone for sure. iPhone 12 Pro Max proves a high-quality performance such as what you are seeking.
IOS 14 with a lot of shortcuts, widgets, and unified apps page. These things were not available before, so this is very interesting from Apple. Adding these likely features is really cool from Apple.
