Do you know you can take a selfie without touching an iPhone?

Yes, iPhone does allow you to capture selfies without touching the screen of your device. We have enlisted this and some other cool ways below so continue reading. But let’s talk about the mirror selfie first.

If you have an iPhone then you might know the great features it has to offer users. Since the release of iOS 14, users can now take mirror selfies. A mirror selfie means the selfies you take will appear like the image you see in the mirror, which means it is flipped horizontally.

The mirror front camera picture mode was first available in iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. Apple named the setting “Mirror Front Photos” from 6s to iPhone X but it only captures photos. However, all the iPhones that have iOS 14 or higher have this feature

Why do you want mirrored images?

The question which can be on people’s minds is why do you even want a mirrored selfie. This is because of the fact that you always look good in a mirror. Some people might say that they look good in the mirror and they look ugly in pictures. This is because we are used to seeing ourselves in mirrors. The image you see in the mirror is a flipped reflection of yourself and it is made from rays of light. 

Even though the reflection you see in mirror is flipped horizontally and we don’t look like that in real life. But the fact that we are used to seeing ourselves in mirror and we are familiar with that image, makes mirrored image more appealing to our eyes and mind. But the selfies we take are not always mirrored and that’s why it can look a bit different then in mirrors. This is the reason people want mirrored selfies in their phones.
