How to Flip FaceTime Camera on iPhone or iPad in iOS 12?

Apple updated its mobile operating system which is iOS 12, and this update caused the placement of the flip camera button of FaceTime on iPad and iPhone to be hidden from its users.

Initially, the button was placed right on the front, but now you need to tap on the menu icon, then tap on the flip button, which takes two taps to achieve but you know some users are already complaining about it. Such a change has never been so excruciating, as many iPhone and iPad users have had to explain the steps of the new hidden settings to their less tech-savvy family member.

Not only is the new place a poor choice in iOS 12 but exiting the menu in FaceTime is nearly impossible too. You will need to tap and drag down a precise spot above the red end call icon to close it. During some FaceTime calls, it was so stressful closing the menu, both parties hung up and started a new call. We have all been wondering why Apple would do such a thing to its users.

Anyways, if you are still finding it hard to locate the flip camera button, then this guide is for you. Here’s how you can flip the FaceTime camera in iOS 12 on your iPhone and iPad.

  • During the FaceTime session, tap the menu button in the lower right corner.
  • Tap the upper right icon “Flip”, then tap on the above the red ‘X’ button and drag it down to close the menu.

These six menu functions should be made visible at the front and centre during a FaceTime call. There is no need to hide them in the menu, as that is just a waste of someone’s time.

Some people on Reddit have speculated that he revised menu was a result of the introduction of Group FaceTime being delayed. Still, there is no excuse from Apple for making its users go through this stress to flip the FaceTime camera.

This mind-boggling user interface (UI) decision has resulted in me explaining to nearly all my friends on how to flip the FaceTime camera. The worst part is when you flip it sometimes you can’t even tell because the menu takes up the whole screen.

I know Apple must have gotten feedbacks from its angry customers over this unfortunate decision. Let’s hope it gets fixed soon.
