The updated iPhone camera app in iOS 14 has shuffled some settings and controls. Don’t worry if you like to take square photos; the option is still there. Here’s how to do it.
Open the “Camera”
Tap “4: 3” (which is the default crop of the iPhone camera).
Tap “Square” to switch from 4: 3 mode to Square mode.
That’s it – you are now taking square photos again.
To create wider cinematic 16: 9 pictures, you can select the “16: 9” option from the same menu.
Crop photos afterwards
If you take square photos, your images will be pre-cropped. Your iPhone will still save the entire file, so you can go back to the original 4: 3 picture at any time. Or you can crop an existing image to a square. Here’s how.
Open the picture you want to crop in the Photos app. Tap “Edit” and then the crop icon.
Then tap the aspect ratio icon and select the desired option.
You can pinch to crop in or out and drag the edges of the crop tool to change the framing of your image. When you are satisfied, tap “Done” to save the results.
The Photos app is packed with features for editing photos after you take them. Check out our full guide to editing photos with the iPhone Photos app for more information.
