One of my favorite discoveries with the iPhone 12 Pro is the ability to change the depth of field while editing in Photos for iOS for my Portrait captures. It's truly amazing and very easy.
The steps are easy. First, capture your picture in Portrait mode with the iPhone. View the image in Photos for iOS on the iPhone or iPad. Go to Edit mode and tap on the "f" in the upper left corner. When it highlights, a Depth Scale should appear on the right side of the interface. Choose the depth you want for the picture. The background will change before your very eyes.
Now you have complete control over the softness of the background.
