How to Flip FaceTime Camera in iOS 12 on iPhone and iPad

Yeah, I know many of you might be thinking where is the flip FaceTime camera in iOS 12 or why the switch camera option is missing during FaceTime calls. Read on to put this confusion out of the way!

Due to the revamped interface, the option to flip FaceTime camera in iOS 12 is slightly under the wraps. So, some of you might be asking, “Where is the switch camera button in the FaceTime app?”

Take a breath! Though it’s a bit hidden, you can flip camera during FaceTime call on iPhone or iPad running iOS 12. Of course, it was much easier to switch between front-facing and rear-facing camera in iOS 11 or earlier as the flip button would always show up at the top right corner. However, the latest iOS version has tried to make the interface look neat, and that’s why the ever-visible flip button has been kept out of sight. Anyway, let’s track it down!

Update: With iOS 12.1.1, Apple has brought back the flip camera button to the main view. So, you will no longer be confused about its location.

After a long wait, “Group Calling” has arrived in FaceTime. Though Apple’s video calling app has always been top-notch, it now looks more equipped to take on the third-party apps like Skype and Viber. Moreover, the option to use Animoji or Memoji during video-calls has added plenty of fun-element into the play.
