These award-winning iPhone photos show what you can do with your older model

It might be understandable that you’re looking for an iPhone 14, but the 2022 iPhone Photography Awards have just landed to prove that you don’t really need that rumored 48MP camera to take incredible pictures.

The annual competition, which is run independently of Apple but is now in its 15th year, has just announced its impressive list of winners. And it’s no exception to the latest iPhones, with winners stretching all the way back to the iPhone 6S Plus from 2015.

We’ve done some tallying and 44% of the winners were actually built on models from the iPhone 11 series or earlier. That said, the most represented phone by far is the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which was behind 23% of the competition’s prize-winning shots.

The IPPA 2022 awards rules state that photographs “should not be altered in any desktop image processing program such as Photoshop”, so how come there is such a diverse range of styles across the categories, from “abstract” to “travel”?
