Helpful Hints

  • If you tap on the camera icon labelled Flip during a call, you can switch from the font- facing camera to the back- facing camera. 
  • During a FaceTime call, hold the device about 12 inches from your face and at eye level. This will allow the person on the other end to see you better.
