I don't blame you, but the problem is not the hardware, it's the software.

They're doing so much post processing now and they haven't quite got it figured out since they added AI to the mix. I'm not happy with the 13 Pro a lot of the time either. So, I mostly use the ProCam app now, which takes much better pictures in most cases than Apple's camera app because it's not doing all that AI bullshit.

MKB has a good video on the subject of image processing in phones and how google went through a similar phase to what Apple is in right now:

I always shoot at 48MP ProRaw, the post-processing is minimal and the results are out of this world. Then, I use a shortcut to convert the file to HEIC and delete the original RAW.

Nice! Which app are you shooting with? Can you share your shortcut?

I'll try to find it and share here! Oh, and I'm shooting with the stock app.

If the issue lies in software will the camera functionality improve on the 14 line with updates over the years?

Hopefully Apple brings hardware improvements to the next model, in which case they can include software improvements for older models. If the only improvements in the next model are in software, I doubt they'll make those backward compatible.
