iOS 14 includes a number of changes and new features with the Photos and Camera apps. One of those minor tweaks but something that many will find useful is the ability to change the default orientation of images captured with the front-facing camera. Read along for how to mirror iPhone selfies.
It’s safe to say social media apps have made us accustomed to the look of mirrored selfies, that is what you see in the image preview is what you get when you capture a pic of yourself.
However, when taking selfies with the front-facing camera on iPhone in the default Camera app, the image that’s saved is the opposite of the mirror image shown in the preview (you can use the Edit option to switch the orientation afterward, but that can become a hassle). With iOS 14, Apple brings a simple way to change the default orientation for selfies if you want a consistent experience across all the apps you take selfies.
