Apple iPhones have some of the best camera sensors on a smartphone, and the picture quality can be further improved with the tons of third party Camera Apps for iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max that are available on the App Store. The custom tweaked lenses offer impressive and realistic pictures in most scenarios. The 4K 60fps video recording is still unbeaten by the competition thanks to its butter-smooth motion and accurate representation of the scene.
The new camera sensors on the latest iPhone 11-series have been receiving rave reviews from across all corners. However, if there’s a slight let-down to the Apple iPhones, it is the default camera app as it lacks most commonly found features like a Pro mode, ability to click RAW photos and more.
For this exact reason, in this article, we will be checking out the “Best Camera Apps for iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max” that you should install if you have purchased the latest iPhones. Let’s get started.

VSCO is one of the most top-rated camera apps for iPhones that has a free version too.

For the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max that come with multiple lenses, the app selects the best lens for the scene by itself and produces ‘Deep Fusion’ pictures. A feature that comes handy even if you’re a pro photographer.
There is also a built-in RAW image editor, which is an added bonus. The Depth capture or the portrait mode is optimised for person subjects to distinguish background and foreground accurately.
Neural Cam is one of the best camera apps for iPhones. It brings the much-hyped night mode to all the iPhones, including the dated iPhone 6. The camera app is powered by artificial intelligence, and with the latest update, it brings support for the ultra-wide lens on the iPhone 11-series.
The NeuralCam is capable of clicking vivid, brighter and clearer images with minimal noise even in low-light conditions. It does so by capturing a varying number of frames and uses image processing algorithms and machine learning to merge frames that in return brighten the colours.
The image processing is claimed to take only a few seconds and is compatible with ultra-wide, wide, front-facing and telephoto sensors as well. However, the app isn’t free but consider it as a one-time investment for your photography interests.
