In order for this function became possible, Apple has accelerated the maximum shutter speed of the camera. As a result, decreased the amount of light entering the sensor. That photography did not become darker — the company increased the ISO of the camera, but it led to a greater noise. With them Apple has done with the help of software noise reduction, and because of this photos on iPhone XS look a little more blurry than the iPhone X.

Glad that the main issue for new cameras for as Apple may soon release a patch which will remove noise and clear pictures.
