1. Tap to focus, don't let the camera do that

Instead of using the auto focus option, you should decide where you want the camera to focus and expose for. If you found the picture is too dark or too light, you can try to focus on a different place and maybe you'll get a better result.

3. HDR is Helpful but not always is

HDR images can represent more accurately the range of intensity color, from direct sunlight to faint starlight. Use HDR in high contrast lighting situations so you'll have big chance to get better color for the entire areas of your photo. You should also know that, if the light is already good enough, then HDR will give you a poorer photo. So the rule is only use HDR on particular conditions.

4. Zoom with your feet instead of camera Zoom

The camera zoom on an iPhone actually is Digital zoom, which is not a true form of a zoom function. The image itself doesn't actually come any closer as the optics in the camera stay the same (similar with cropping your photo). If the camera is trying to zoom digitally it will still pick up more shake from your hands and it will create a lower resolution image. Your best bet is to take the picture without zooming and then crop in as close as you want.
