You can use your iPhone for some pretty good photos. If you know how.
Exposure is one of them.
At the same time, you will focus where you clicked.
And finally, you can adjust exposure in addition, by dragging up or down after you tap.
The moral of the story: even for an iPhone you need to know things. “Automatic ” is never the best option.
