While I'm a novice and don't have clear definition of IQ, I assume it means "image quality" and vaguely associate it with what make an image "good": brightness, sharpness, constrast, color, noise, DR, ...

But in a recent post by someone with over 1,500 posts, the definition of IQ seems to be different from my understanding ("intelligent quotient" of camera? how smart a camera is?)

Have I been learning it wrong?

Dexter's point is that such assets as Smart HDR, Deep Fusion, and Night Mode together elevate the IQ of smartphone photos.

His assertion is well-reasoned and amply supported. It ought to be self-evident.

That's like saying Photoshop elevates a dSLR's IQ. Silly.

You mean, it doesn't??

Of course it doesn't. It can improve the IQ of a photo, which isn't the same thing.
