After all, the iPhone 14 Pro is equipped with a mighty fine 48MP main camera, 12MP ultrawide camera, and 12MP telephoto camera. There’s even a 12MP front-facing selfie camera, with the capability to capture wide shots — which comes in handy with big group selfies.
Additionally, mobile photography is enjoyable for reasons other than just Apple's potent hardware. The camera app in iOS 16 is jam-packed with capabilities, including Portrait mode, Cinematic Video, Panoramas, ProRAW, and many more. But have you ever desired to take a picture of yourself with someone else but been unable to get their assistance? If no one is available to take your picture for you, you might simply wish to snap a picture of yourself that isn't a selfie.
How to turn on the camera timer on your iPhone
Apple offers a camera timer feature, but it's a little obscured, so you might not have been aware of it. On your current iPhone, however, there is a way to access it that works for both the front-facing and back-facing cameras.
Step 1: Start your iPhone's camera app.
Step 2: Ensure that the camera of choice is selected. The front-facing selfie camera, along with the main, telephoto, and ultrawide cameras on the back, are all compatible with the timer.
Step 3: To open a hidden options menu, either pick the arrow button at the top of the camera screen or swipe up on the viewfinder.
Step 4: Choose the timer option. The symbol appears as a circle with a needle pointing at 11 o'clock.
Step 5: Choose 3s or 10s, or if you change your mind, leave it on Timer Off. Three or ten seconds can be chosen as the duration of the timer.
Step 6: Align your photo in the desired position.
Press the shutter button in step seven. A countdown will now appear on the screen, and the LED on the back will flash in time with the countdown to alert everyone in the frame to the impending photo-taking.
The camera app will snap a burst of 10 images when you utilise the camera timer in case there is any movement during the shot. The thumbnail in the lower-left corner can be tapped, selected, and then you can browse the photographs to choose your favourite. To eliminate duplications and clutter, you can select to save the favorite(s) and either keep everything or just the favourites.
