How to Remote Shutter iPhone Camera using Apple Watch

Apple Watch has a number of tricks packed in with it. One of my favorite tricks that I have been able to discover on the Watch is that it can let you remote shutter your iPhone Camera. Hence, you can capture a perfect selfie without having to hold your iPhone in your hand.

Though there is a Timer feature in the Camera app on iPhone, it doesn’t always get it right especially if you desire to take a nice shot.

With Timer set, it’s too difficult to find out whether the picture is rightly framed or not. That’s why this little trick of your Watch can be worth trying if you wish to capture nice group photos or selfies.

How to Remote Trigger iPhone Camera Using Apple Watch

Step #1. Click the Digital Crown to go Home screen on your Watch (in case, you are not already there.)

Step #2. Tap on the Camera icon.

Step #3. If the Camera app is closed on your iPhone, you will have to tap on Open Camera on your watch screen.

Step #4. You can see the preview of what your iPhone is about to capture.

Step #5. Once you are OK with the picture your iPhone is to take, tap on the shutter button which is in the middle to take a memorable picture.

If you want to have some time delay before letting iPhone capture the picture, simply tap on 3s which is on the right side of the shutter button. When you tap on time delay, you have a three-second countdown before the picture is taken.

That’s it! You can repeat these same steps to capture more photos using your Apple Watch.
