Did you notice that while taking a Selfie on an 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. Simply put, the Selfies we capture are un-mirrored, but with iOS 14 & later allowing 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 to the native Camera app. If you’re the one with this demand, no need to download any third-party app to Mirror Front Camera.
Once the Mirror Front Camera is turned on, the iPhone will save all the Selfies just like the mirror image, without flipping. Few people found the flipped images bizarre as they destroyed the background of the photos. Learn how to turn on the Mirror Front Camera on your iPhone.
