What are HDR, Auto HDR & Smart HDR shooting modes and how do they boost my iPhone photography game?

Your iPhone has supported HDR imaging for almost a decade now. The new Smart HDR feature, afforded by the iPhone XS/Max/Xr series, is an always-on HDR mode shooting mode that takes advantage of the A12 Bionic chip and the improved camera sensors to take multiple images at different exposure levels and blend them together. The result is a single photograph with great contrast and a lot better detail in the bright and midtone areas.
