The only very simple but overlooked way to enhance your iPhone photos

It is very strange. People are obsessed with getting the best possible photos out of their iPhone, researching all kinds of tips and tricks, and trying out the myriad of different photography apps available.

But there is one thing that can be easily overlooked.

Something I do all the time as a photographer who uses a mirrorless camera.

This cleans my lens.

Yes, it is that simple.

I noticed the other day that my iPhone photos looked blurry and had a strange, ugly streak of light running through the photos.

I started wondering if this was a bug in the iOS update.

Or maybe something you did on the settings.

Then it amazed me what I would have done if the mirrorless Sony had started doing this – I was cleaning the lens!

Yes, I will clean the lens.

It should be noted that my Sony lenses live with the lens caps until they are used, and I clean them regularly, never putting my fingers on them or storing them for days on end in my pocket.

So, I turned on my iPhone and wah…

Smudges, fingerprints, dirt, hair and other random schmoo.

iPhone lenses are really dirty

Ugh!

How to clean iPhone lenses

Now, it’s easy to take a shirt on the lenses and use it to clean them, but I wouldn’t dream of doing that with other camera lenses.

So I did the right thing and used a lens fitting wipe. My favorite lens cleaners are Zeiss lens wipes. They are high quality wipes that I can buy in bulk and get good results.

It made a huge difference. The images were brighter and a terrible streak of light went through the image.

Everything is clean!

Smartphone camera lenses are designed to withstand a lot of abuse and still deliver great photos. But they cannot change the laws of physics, and dirt and dirt on the lens will have a negative effect on the quality of the output.
