How to Adjust the Camera on My iPhone


The iPhone contains two cameras that are controlled through a single application within the phone. These cameras contain several configurable options that you can set. For instance, the iPhone contains an HDR setting with which you can take higher resolution pictures with enhanced contrast and color range. The phone also contains a zoom slider with which you can choose a precise zoom setting. You can learn to configure your iPhone's camera settings in a few simple steps.

  • Press the home button located directly below the screen to go to the main menu.

  • Tap the camera icon.

  • Toggle the High Definition Range imaging mode by tapping the "HDR" button located in the upper half of the screen twice.

  • Access your flash options by tapping the icon that is shaped like a lightning bolt. Tap "Auto," "On" or "Off" to set your flash preferences.

  • Access the camera's zoom capabilities by rapidly tapping the center of the screen one time. Manipulate the slider that appears by pressing it and dragging it to either the right or left.

  • Toggle the front-facing and rear-facing camera by tapping the camera icon located in the upper right-hand side of the screen.

Tips & Warnings

  • HDR images will use much more memory than normal photographs.
  • The buttons can be difficult to see if viewed in direct sunlight.
  • Zoom in by moving the slider to the left; zoom out by sliding it to the right.
