Apple is always trying to improve the camera on the iPhone by upgrading its hardware or through the system. However, some argue that the camera is not operating at full capacity or using all of its features. This is due to the lack of familiarity with everything about the camera application, how it works, and all the features that you need to enable or disable to give you the ideal image quality. There are many features and settings that you can play with to improve the captured images. It may be possible to enable a certain feature to badly affect the image, and vice versa, a certain feature may be disabled and the image becomes perfect. The default mode may also be unfavorable to the shooting process. If you want to take your iPhone camera to a higher level, you need to understand what you're dealing with. Follow the article for five tips and tricks you need to try on the iPhone camera to make perfect photos.

Five simple tricks to improve the image quality of the iPhone camera

Fast photography comes at the cost of quality

One of the best things about the iPhone camera is how easy and fast it is to take pictures. You can click the capture button and it will take a photo instantly, or even use the Burst feature to quickly capture an infinite number of shots by using the volume up button.

However, the image might not be as good due to that speed. With so many photos taken this way, you may need to compare them to get a high-quality one. This is somewhat confusing, besides the time consumed in each process, not to mention the boredom that results from behind that process.

You can change this so that the iPhone prioritizes quality rather than fast photography by:



◉ Scroll down and disable Prioritize Faster Shooting.

If you disable giving priority to fast photography, the iPhone will capture images at higher quality, but will not capture images at the previous speed. You'll need to test it and determine if you prefer quality over quantity, but quick photography has other advantages the article can't help but mention.

Master photography with Night Mode

Night Mode is a fairly new feature that Apple launched in 2019. This feature helps you take better photos in low-light environments, and you have no doubt already used it.

Night mode is an automatic feature that the iPhone activates when it detects low light. However, there are still some things you can do to help Night Mode take better photos.

First-Try to install the camera. The less you move it, the better the shot.

Second-You can set the timing of the night mode to bring in more or less light.

Night mode automatically adjusts the time it will take to take a photo, depending on how dark the environment is. However, you can change it manually to take a better photo. Do the following:

◉ Open the Camera.

◉ Before taking a photo in low light, tap on the Night Mode icon located in the upper corner of your screen. It should be yellow.

◉ You will see a slider above the capture button. Slide it left or right to increase, decrease, or stop the timer completely.

Before trying that, keep in mind that Night Mode is only available on iPhone 11 and iPhone 12.

Make the front camera mirror

The front camera on the iPhone might be a bit strange when taking selfies. When you take a selfie, you will see yourself as if you were looking in the mirror. But when you check the image in the Photos app, you will see it backwards.

For example, if you take a selfie with your right hand up, the Camera app will show you a mirror version of yourself. But once you see the image in the Photos app, you will see it as if you were raising your left hand.

You can actually change this so that your selfies show a mirror version of yourself. Here's how you can do it:

◉ Open Settings.

◉ Scroll down and go to Camera.

◉ Under Composition, enable the Mirror Front Camera.

Note that you can only use this feature on iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max and later.

Apple's test ProRAW

Apple ProRAW is one of the exclusive features of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. We've talked about this feature before, but it's basically a completely RAW image file type, with a few tweaks from the camera software.

This means you can edit your photos just as you want. Of course, this takes more time and effort but if you are into photography then you should give this feature a try.

Here's how to enable Apple ProRaw on your iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max:

◉ Open Settings.

◉ Scroll down and select Camera.

◉ Click on Formats.

◉ Activate Apple ProRAW.

◉ After enabling it, you can launch ProRAW and launch the camera app by clicking on the RAW button in the upper corner of your screen.

Bear in mind that Apple ProRAW files take up much more space on an iPhone, and they won't be edited like your normal photo, so this feature isn't ideal if you just want to take regular photos. However, it is worth a try if you already have an iPhone 12 Pro model.

Learn to use automatic FPS

FPS, or Frames Per Second, is the number of frames or frequencies used to make an image animated. If you love shooting videos at night, you might have noticed that your video files are not as clear as they should be. Some of the shots may look a bit blurry, it is possible that the iPhone is trying to help you using Auto FPS.

Auto FPS is a feature that can reduce the frame rate of your video to improve low-light. Although it may be useful on some occasions, it is best to know how to turn it off when needed.

◉ Open Settings.

◉ Go to the camera.

◉ Tap on Record Video.

◉ Scroll down and select Auto FPS and turn it off.

You can play around with this feature to see when and when you should not use Auto FPS.
