Selfies: Mirror to display fonts correctly
Do you know that? You are standing in front of a building or something similar with writing on it. However, if you now take a selfie, it will be mirrored. This doesn't look particularly good and is difficult to read. With iOS 14 you now have the option to mirror your selfies as you take them. To use the function permanently you have to go into the settings:
- Open the Settings app
- Scroll down to "Camera" and tap on it.
- Under "Composition" you should find "Flip front camera". Activate the function.
The next time you launch the camera, selfies should now be mirrored.
Continuous shooting: With the volume up button at the touch of a button
With iPhone 12 and the latest version of iOS, you can snap photos in rapid succession without having to keep pressing the shutter button. Instead, you can just hold the volume up button and your device will record a burst. In the Photos app, you can then delete individual pictures and keep the best shots.
- Go to the "Settings" app.
- Scroll to "Camera" and select it.
- Now activate the function "Use 'Louder' for series".
Insider tip: The additional "button" on the back
A button is hidden on the back of your iPhone . However, you cannot see them. It's more about a virtual button that you activate with a gesture. If you tap the back twice in quick succession, you press the "button" and perform a function. You can even choose what that is. For example, you can activate your camera, activate Siri or start a shortcut. If that's not enough for you, you can even set a function that you activate with three quick taps. The "button" can even be assigned twice.
- Go to the Settings app.
- Scroll down to "Accessibility" and tap it.
- Here you will find the item "Typing", which you select.
- At the bottom you can see "Tap on Back". tap on it
- Now select "Double tap" and set the desired function.
- If you want, you can repeat this with triple tap.
