At the annual Apple Event at the new Steve Jobs Theater on Sept. 12, the company unveiled its latest products — including the highly anticipated iPhone X. The costly smartphone features a redesigned display, wireless charging, and Face ID. Though Apple is giving us a lot to process — namely, the inevitable robot takeover — people online were pretty excited about the future of their selfies.

Apple's new camera technology brings Portrait Mode to the front-facing camera. And just in case that wasn't enough, there's also a new Portrait Lighting feature that allows users to edit the lighting in real time. You can choose between different modes including natural, studio, contour, and more. Though the iPhone 8 shares a lot of these new features, the iPhone X is the only one to have them available on the front-facing camera. So that's something to consider if you're a selfie aficionado.

Ahead, check out the new camera capabilities straight from Apple's event and see how the internet is reacting.
