Occasional posts will contain how-tos and/or hints for VERY new users of iPads, iPhones or Kindles. All new users welcome! Non-tech speak, not terribly detailed, just basic device-enhancing goodness. All part of this Very Beginner Series. Please share with any beginners (Mom? Dad? Grandma?) in your life.
Recently one of the readers of this blog asked me about this, and I realized that there are probably other new users who also are unaware of how to switch the perspective for your camera. After all, when you FIRST get a new device, everything is new to you, even the most basic. And THAT is the purpose of this VERY Beginner series….. 🙂
How to switch the perspective of your camera, so that you can take a picture of yourself (a selfie) :
Open your Camera app
Look to the TOP of the screen. You will see an icon that looks like the outline of a camera with two whirly arrows in it.
Tap that icon, and the camera will switch it’s direction, and take a picture of you. Just tap the same icon to switch it back.
