At today’s Apple launch event,  senior vice president Phil Schiller explained two gee-whiz features of Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus—a zoom that doesn’t sacrifice picture quality up to a factor of two, and an ability to create a depth of field effect in which foreground images are clear while the background is blurred. Both of these features are basic requirements for serious photographers. The secret to incorporating them into a small mobile device is stitching together the images captured by multiple camera modules with different focal lengths.
