How to Turn Off HDR on iPhone 14

Here's a guide to disable or turn off HDR on your iPhone 14 by going to Settings and turning off the in-built Smart HDR option.

A High Dynamic Range (HDR) photo is a shot that shows the brightest and darkest areas of a scene at the same time. The HDR function of the iPhone camera also takes many photos of the same subject at the same time, and that’s why you will have to keep the iPhone still while you take a photo with the HDR function activated. But the only problem is that if you take photos or record videos in HDR on iPhones, you should know that it will take up a lot of storage space on the Apple device. Hence, to run out of storage space, you will have to disable this feature. In this guide, we will tell you how to turn off HDR on iPhone 14 below.
