The iPhone camera is perhaps the most used camera in the world. Not only is it present on one of the most popular devices ever created, but it can also take some pretty good pictures. There are a number of different settings, tools and features available to iPhone camera users, including something called a Grid.
This grid is meant to be used as a means to properly setup a picture. This is accomplished by placing the objects of the pictures within the gridlines that overlay the camera. However, you might not be using these gridlines, and find that they cause more problems than they fix. Fortunately this grid is not a permanent fixture of the Camera app and you can remove it if you aren’t using it.
How to Turn Off the Camera Grid in the Camera App on an iPhone 7
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 10.3.3. By completing these steps you will turn off the grid that overlays the viewing window on the iPhone’s camera. These are the lines that separate the camera into 9 separate rectangles. If you find that you actually use the grid more than you realized, you can always come back to this menu and turn it back on in the future.
Step 1: Open the Settings app.
Step 2: Scroll down and choose the Photos & Camera menu option.
Step 3: Scroll to the Camera section of this menu and tap the button to the right of Grid to turn it off.
Note that there are several other settings on this menu that you might want to adjust as well.
