Mirror the front camera of your iPhone for better selfies in iOS 14. Here’s how to do the flip

The latest version of Apple’s iPhone ($ 900 at Boost Mobile) operating system, iOS 14.5, will be launched next week. Whatever OS version you are using, you will find many updated camera tools and features, including night mode improvements and burst photos. But a smaller camera function can make the biggest difference to your selfie needs: There is now a setting called Mirror Front Camera.

Mirror Front Camera joins the iPhone 11‘s “slofie” slow-motion selfie feature to provide us with a more subtle – and, dare I say, more useful – selfie tool. (It should be noted that it is one of many iOS 14 functions that is already available on Android devices for some time.)

Read on for everything you need to know about the Mirror Front Camera feature and how to use it to enhance your selfie game.

What does Mirror Front Camera mean?

You may have already come across this setting in your camera preferences and wondered what it was. When you turn it on and switch to your front camera, it takes a photo that’s your mirror image, instead of flipping it like the camera usually does. Some people find this shocking because the photo you take does not match the image you see in the viewfinder.

Ultimately, it might not change your selfie much, but some people may prefer the more familiar inverted version of your face, like looking in a mirror.

How to use the Mirror Front Camera function

When iOS 14 is installed, the Mirror Front Camera setting is disabled by default. To enable it, do the following:

Go to Settings > Camera. below Composition, switch Mirror front camera On. Go back to your camera app and turn the camera to face yourself. The image will appear as you see yourself in the mirror, rather than flipped as usual.

Here you can see the side-by-side comparison of a regular selfie and one taken with Mirror Front Camera enabled.
