How to activate Camera Grid in iOS 7 Quick Tip for iPhone Photographers

If you follow the rule of thirds while clicking on images, the “grid” is useful. In previous versions of iOS, the grid could be enabled from the Camera (Options button).

In iOS 7, Apple has placed the switch under Settings. Heres how you can enable the grid in the iOS 7 camera application so you can capture pictures with perfect images.


  • Opens the application for configuration
  • Scroll down and touch Photos and camera
  • Under CAMERA, turn on the grid .
  • .

The grid works for both Photo and Square mode on the camera. Obviously, there is no grid for videos and slow motion (on iPhone 5s).

In iOS 6, the grid was available as a switch from the “Options” button in the Camera application. This made it easy to turn the grid on and off without having to leave the camera screen. I am not sure why Apple had to change this, but it has something to do with the complete renewal of the interface. There is no “Options” button on the camera interface.

The new interface aims to distract less and provide more space for the image. The flash button is hidden in the left corner and the front rear camera is alternated on the right. Of the options, only the HDR switch remains and is placed at the bottom, just above the shutter.

With the renovation, Apple has also brought filters to the camera application. The real-time filters on iPhone are interesting to use.

If you are like me, you would also prefer the grid within the Camera application rather than in Configuration. However, since there is no way to change the function now, I think we will have to settle for what is available.
