The cameras on Apple’s iPhones have always been good. They might not necessarily be deemed to be the best, but they have always been good enough where many users have no problems capturing great quality photos with them. However it seems that the improvements Apple made with the iPhone Xs might have led to some conspiracy theories.

In a post on Bustle (via Cult of Mac), Emma Lord compares the quality of the selfie camera of the iPhone Xs against that of the iPhone 6s and found the differences to be huge, but in a good way. Like we said, this has since led to some believing that Apple might have secretly included a beautifying technique into its camera app without users knowing.

While beauty filters that smoothens and lightens the skin have been used by other handset manufacturers and developers of apps, Apple has typically shied away from such gimmicks. In fact as far as in-app filters are concerned, what Apple offers with the native camera app is very barebones, and Portrait mode and Portrait Lighting are as gimmicky as Apple gets.

There have been many who have felt that Apple’s cameras are making their selfies look too good, with Lewis Hilsenteger from Unbox Therapy commenting on it in his iPhone Xs and Xs Max unboxing video. Apple has yet to respond to this conspiracy, but what do you guys make of it? Did Apple secretly include a beautifying filter that they neglected to tell anyone about?
