Apart from the “E” toggle button, a dedicated preferences pane in the Settings app will also come up that will allow you to enable/disable the tweak. Along with this, there will be a toggle for High Quality Mode. Of course, you can understand that the High-Quality Mode will get you better photographs, but since it requires more processing power, it is recommended to toggle ON only if you are using iPhone 8 or above.
