Hi, i'm no expert with camera's but upon doing some research recently about purchasing a new camera, i discovered a few hints/tips. The resulting picture quality is made up of a number/combination of factors, mega-pixels, processor's, sensors, settings, lens quality etc. I purchased the FujiFilm F500EXR, which is classed as an advanced compact camera. I believe it is one step down from a DSLR. It does the job for me in general. It has many settings, that covers everything that i would need it for. The iphone camera would not have the hardware needed to produce the quality of even a fairly basic digital camera.. Of course the DSLR's would be a better camera but they tend to be more expensive. It really depends on your budget. As i said, i'm no expert in photography and i'm sure someone with more experience will be able to help you out better. I hope this gives you some more knowledge and doesn't confuse you more!!!!
