How to Enable Native HDR on iOS 6 Devices

HDR iPad

If you have taken advantage of the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, one of the benefits is the ability to enable native HDR mode on those devices. When using HDR, short for “high dynamic range,” the device’s camera will take three photos, and automatically merge them together into one image with the best lighting and exposure conditions possible.

iFans forum member Tkf1 has posted detailed step-by-step instructions on how to enable native HDR on iOS 6 devices, namely the iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPad mini and fourth-generation iPod touch. The tutorial is technical, involving the modification of certain strings within the iOS filesystem, but is rather straightforward and should be easy to understand for most users. Do post any questions in the thread if you encounter any difficulties or want something clarified.
