How to Mirror Selfies on iPhone

Instead of flipping photos after taking selfies, you can capture “mirror selfies” automatically as they appear in the preview on your iPhone. Let’s explore this feature.

The Camera app on the iPhone packs several features, including an option to automatically take mirror selfies. This feature is available on iPhones running at least iOS 14 or later.

First, open the Settings app on your iPhone. Refer to the below image:

Accessing Settings

Next, in Settings, scroll down and tap Camera. See the below image:

Accessing the Camera

Now, scroll down to the Composition section and toggle the switch for Mirror Front Camera to ON. (On some iPhones, this option might be labeled Mirror Front Photos.) See the following image:

Next, open the Camera app on your iPhone. Turn the camera to face yourself and snap a selfie. The saved image will appear as you see yourself in the mirror, instead of flipped as it usually is. Note that your front camera automatically mirrors the front camera viewfinder, so this setting only affects the image that’s saved to your photo library.
