Are you terrible at taking pictures? This little-known iPhone setting that is always on by default could be the reason
Apple has sprinkled features into its iPhone to help everyone take great photos.
But a little-known setting could be the reason why your photos don’t live up to the hype.
Tucked away in the Camera app is a setting called Prioritize Faster Shooting, which is great for bursts of photos, but reduces the quality of other images.
The feature is enabled by default, but can be disabled by going to Settings, Camera, then scrolling through the list of options.

On iPhone X, iPhone XR, and later, the Prioritize Faster Shooting setting changes the way images are processed so you can take more photos when you quickly tap the Shutter button.
The option is also only available on devices running iOS 13.
Prioritize Shooting faster sacrifices photo quality for speed – and usually results in more blurry photos.
Apple is just weeks away from launching its new iPhone 15, which is rumored to have better camera tech.
A 2022 report found that 90 percent of people who have taken photos have only done so with a smartphone.
This means that camera quality is at the top of the list, and Apple knows that very well.

DailyMail.com spoke to industry expert Dan Ives with Wedbush Securities about the upcoming smartphone.
“We’ve heard there’s a 20 to 30 percent improvement over the iPhone 14,” Ives said.
“This probably includes megapixels and other capabilities around photos that aren’t even conceivable with the iPhone 14.”
The iPhone 15 is expected to have the same dual-sensor camera setup, but could also have the 48MP main sensor included in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone Pro Max.
These predictions were made by analyst Jeff Pu, who is also a leading Apple expert, and reviewed by MacRumors in a research note.
And the iPhone 15 Pro could have the long-rumoured periscope instead.
This periscope camera made progress in 2020 after MacRumors saw another research note from renowned Apple product forecaster and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Periscope lenses use mirrors to provide a much greater optical zoom.
