    I'm new so I'm sorry if this has been posted before (I did look through previous threads).

    Since I updated to iOS7 the photo quality on my iPhone 5 has suffered dramatically, especially when using the flash or in low light conditions. Photos are dark or soft/blurry. It used to be that when I used the flash on close-up photos the highlights would be blown out. Now its like the flash is barely working. My son has an iPhone 5 and has the exact same issues.:confused:

    I've spent more time going through other forums and there are other iPhone 5 users with the same problem and I've read of fixes such as resetting the phone or dropping it from 5-7 inches.

    Are you sure you don't have one of the filters running on the camera app?

    Have you tried 3rd party camera apps?

    I double checked and I'm not using a filter. Does anyone have a suggestion on a good 3rd party camera app?

    I was hoping that iOS7.1 might have a fix but not so.

    I use camera+ and love it but it does seem weird that the quality has suffered. Is the quality poor with flash on/off and auto?

    All flash use whether it's auto or on is very different since the upgrade. Using the my iphone for indoor photos is almost pointless.

    Honestly, I would back it up, reset all settings, and restore. Blow the cobwebs out. It's more likely to be software than hardware.

    I don't advise dropping it from 7 inches, however. Whoever suggested that on another forum... lol - I'll bet some people do it.
