This means that you can now adjust the blur and change the area of focus with any Portrait Mode photo you've shot with the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max. From now on if you have an iPhone and the newest iteration of Google Photos, pull up a portrait mode picture, tap the editing icon, and then tap it one more time to edit depth and focus through sliders. Depth editing is actually a fairly recent feature for iPhones, and is only available on iPhone X and above. Depth Control allows you to change the background blur of a photo while you're snapping a pic or after. Another major addition coming with the update is the ability to keep the subject saturated in color while the background can be changed to black and white. The new Google Photos update also brings the "Colour Pop" feature that Google demonstrated at its I/O 2018 back in May. Though it remains unclear, it seems like Google is handling all the depth-of-field processing behind the scenes given that images altered with Google Photos often look far different than they do when edited with Apple's Photos app. What are your thoughts on the new Google Photos update for iOS? Now, as we have mentioned earlier, the feature has made its way to the Google Photos app for iOS. Share your views in the comments.
