How To Turn Off Mirroring On iPhone Camera‍

You can try out the new camera features on your iPhone and iPad as soon as they’re released through software updates. However, not everyone likes every new feature. And it’s quite understandable to not like some of them. Some users may find this camera features annoying or distracting. For example, you may not want to use the new Depth Effect or Anamorphic Lens in Videos mode because it’s not what you are looking for when using the camera app. Or maybe you prefer a more simplified camera UI without any additional digital effects like Mono and Green Screen. So how do you turn off mirroring on the iPhone camera so that none of these features will show up again? Here’s how.
