Best Apple iPhone photos ever taken: Breathtaking images snapped on just a smartphone

Apple’s iPhone has long been known for offering a great camera. These flagship smartphones are capable of some incredible photography, so much so that many modern photographers often ditch their DSLR cameras in favour of the ultra-portable iPhone. 

The results are often spectacular too. To honour the efforts, the iPhone Photography Awards were born in 2007 and have been choosing award-winning photos every year since. Apple also encouraged iPhone photographers to share their best works for the Shot on iPhone Challenge.

As you can imagine, the images submitted to both these competitions are nothing short of fantastic. We’ve combed through them to bring you a collection of our favourite photos taken over the last few years. Incredible images you won’t believe were shot on a smartphone.

If you feel like you’ve got what it takes, you too could submit your photos to the iPhone Photography Awards to see if you can win an award in one of the 16 categories. The registration page of the IPPA 2021 is already open and the deadline is 31 March 2021.
