Apple iPhones have fantastic cameras, the only problem is the default settings aren’t the best settings. As default the photo ratio is set to 4:3 which is great in some situations but 16:9 is much better especially with the wide angle lens on the more recent iPhones. What’s worse is as standard it will always revert back to 4:3 which can be really annoying.
The good news is there is a single setting on the iPhone that if you enable it will keep your previous iPhone camera settings. Here is how to enable it.
- Open settings on your iPhone.
- Scroll down and tap on Camera.
- Tap on Preserve Settings
- Enable Creative Controls
- Close Settings
- Open the Camera
- Press the arrow on the left side of the screen
- tap on the button on the right side that says 4:3
- Change it to 16:9
- Tap on the arrow again.
- The camera will now keep the aspect ratio as 16:9 instead of 4:3
You will notice there are many other settings which the camera will now remember such as exposure and flash settings.
Hope this helps.
