How To Keep iPhone Camera Settings

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.

  1. Open settings on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Camera.
  3. Tap on Preserve Settings
  4. Enable Creative Controls
  5. Close Settings
  6. Open the Camera
  7. Press the arrow on the left side of the screen
  8. tap on the button on the right side that says 4:3
  9. Change it to 16:9
  10. Tap on the arrow again.
  11. 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.
