It is important to note that you should only install the developer beta if you are ready to take up some risks and if you are fine with reduced stability. If you have a spare iPhone compatible with the beta then you can easily check out the new iOS 14 Beta software that comes with several new features such as the home screen widgets, picture-in-picture mode, and the new Translate application.

There is also a small camera feature that makes a huge difference while taking selfies, this new setting called mirror front camera selfie was available on multiple Android devices for several years now and has finally made its way to the iPhone.

Yet another new feature in the iPhone Camera department is the “slofie” option which allows users to take a slow-motion selfie using the front camera. While the Mirror Front Camera option is very subtle compared to all the other features showcased at the WWDC event, this option makes a lot of difference while taking images and is certainly a very useful feature.

When you turn on this feature, it will change the front-facing camera so that it is no longer flipped. The mirror image feature is a little confusing for a few people as the image being shown in the viewfinder is not the same as the end result as the mirror image effect happens after the image is actually captured.

While this might not change the selfie too much, most people may prefer the more familiar version of their face as they are used to seeing themselves in the mirror. The iOS 14 software is only available in the early preview for the developers and you can test it out right now if you have an Apple Developer account.
