Auto HDR is Turned on By Default on iPhone X & iPhone 8 – Here’s How to Turn Things Around.

There’s no doubt in the fact that the iPhone X, along with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are packed with phenomenal cameras. In fact, these cameras are so good that Apple believes that HDR (High Dynamic Range) should be enabled at all times so that you are treated with a perfectly balanced photo every single time you press that shutter button. Of course, every photographer might not agree with that as HDR tends to add a little bit of ‘artificialness’ into the mix under certain lighting conditions. If you are one of those who believe that automatic HDR should be turned off, then we will show you how you can disable the feature. And no, you can not do it straight from the Camera app if you want to. Pick up your iPhone and follow suit.
