For photography, the slate packs a 12MP TrueDepth camera as well as an ultrawide-angle lens with 122º field of view up front. The wide FOV enables a feature which Apple calls Center Stage. Ho this works is that the tablet can zoom in and pan to keep the subject in the centre of the frame when in a video call. Also, if there are two subjects, it will zoom out to keep both subjects at the centre of the frame. The rear aspect features a dual camera setup which is a 12MP main sensor and a 10MP ultrawide sensor. There is also a LiDAR scanner that helps with autofocus in low-light.
