I recently switched from my Samsung Galaxy S20 to an iPhone 14 Pro and was confused as to why I had to manually select 16:9 for the aspect ratio every time I started the Camera app.
Here’s how to make it default to the camera settings used previously:
- Go to ‘Settings’
- Go to ‘Camera’
- Tap ‘Preserve Settings’
- Toggle ‘Creative Controls’ on (so it is green0
This will make the application remember the last used filter, aspect ratio and light/depth settings each time, instead of automatically resetting.
Whilst on the Preserve Settings page, you may wish to consider enabling any of the other options that would make your life easier, such as remembering the previously used camera mode.
