Apple is looking for the best Night mode photos shot on iPhone
January 9, 2020

The company will buy the rights for the best five.

Starting January 8th until January 29th, Apple will start the search for the photos shot in Night mode on the iPhone 11. The search is open to iPhone users around the world, a panel of select judges will be revealing the top five photos on March 4, where Apple will buy the rights and be included in a gallery on the Apple Newsroom, their website (, and on Apple’s Instagram page (@apple).

The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro have already won praise from experts and users thanks to its improved camera system, making the world’s most popular camera. All iPhone 11 models feature a new Wide sensor that has 100 Focus Pixels that help with Night mode. This function can deliver the best low-light images that weren’t possible on the iPhone before.

If you own an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max, Night mode turns on automatically when taking images in low light. A yellow icon on the top left corner inside the Camera app will tell you if Night mode has been turned on. Night mode also determines how long the shutter will take the image, which is also customizable. Much like a real camera, putting the iPhone on a tripod will greatly improve your Night shots.

To submit your entries, you can upload images shot on the iPhone 11 on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #ShotoniPhone and #NightmodeChallenge. For Weibo users, you can use #ShotoniPhone# and #NightmodeChallenge#. Also you need to add which iPhone model you used to capture.

You can also send in the images in high-resolution via email to and use the format ‘firstname_lastname_nightmode_iPhonemodel’. The photos can be straight from the camera or edited through the Photos or any third-party software.
