Probably the Camera App of iOS got only one bigger change, and that is Mirror Front Camera. Did you notice that while taking a Selfie on iPhone, the viewfinder displays the mirrored image, that’s exactly how we see in the mirror, and the saved photo is totally different than how it looked in the viewfinder? In simple words the Selfies we capture are un-mirrored, but with iOS 14 Mirror Front Camera, you can change this behavior. Honestly, the Mirror Front Camera Selfies are gawky, however, some folks wanted this feature, and thankfully, Apple has added it in the native Camera app, if you’re the one with this demand, no need to download any third-party app, to Mirror Front Camera.
