When you take a selfie with your iPhone using the stock Camera app, it automatically flips – or mirrors – the image so that it's an inverted version of the mirror image you see in the preview before you take the shot.
This can look odd, since it makes a big difference to how selfies look. It can also be annoying, since most third-party social media apps automatically take mirrored selfies, which means you're more likely to be used to the mirroring functionality than the flipped selfies that you iPhone takes.
Fortunately, in iOS 14 and later, Apple has enabled users to change this default behavior of the Camera app, meaning that you can get the mirrored selfie you're probably more accustomed to seeing. Here's how.
- Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Scroll down and select Camera.
- Toggle the switch next to Mirror Front Camera to the green ON position.
That's all there is to it. From now on when you use the Camera app to shoot a selfie, you'l capture the same shot that you saw in the app's preview mode.
