iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max: How to take full 48MP photos

Earlier this month, Apple introduced the iPhone 14 Pro. Aside from the new A16 Bionic chipset, the most notable improvement is the rear camera, with Apple upgrading the 12MP sensor to 48MP. However, by default, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max only take 12MP “combined” images to capture more light for your image, effectively combining the lighting of four pixels in one for better images.

This is a technique that has been used for some time by a number of higher megapixel smartphone cameras from brands such as Samsung, Xiaomi and others.

But what if you want to take full 48MP images that capture more detail and allow you to zoom in more instead of the default composite images? Here’s a quick tutorial on how to click 48 MP photos. Please note that taking 48MP images is not always recommended as they can often be over 75MB per image.

How to take 48 MP photos on iPhone 14 Pro

To take 48MP photos on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro, you must first enable Apple ProRAW. To do this, users need to open the “Settings” app and go to the Camera section.

Once done, tap on the “Formats” option and you will find a switch to enable “Apple ProRAW”. Now that Apple ProRAW is turned on, you’ll be able to see 48MP as the default option.

Now go back to the Camera app and make sure the “RAW” switch is selected. Now you can take 48MP pictures from your phone. To check if the photo you took is captured at 48 MP, open the image details and check if the resolution is 8064 x 6048.

If you want to switch back to the default 12MP images, simply turn off ProRAW mode and you’re good to go.
