I usually write posts about development, merely to keep a record for myself, but I wanted to share this information because I’ve never met an iPhone owner who knew this trick. Don’t hesitate to tell all the iPhone owners you meet.

So, you want to take a photo with your iPhone ...

Let’s take a case where you put your iPhone in landscape orientation, like this:

So that’s it. I hope that it will help you! Don't hesitate to share this trick!


More tricks to come (that you may or may not know) ...

  • Remove the number of missed calls on the phone icon
  • Kill an application from memory
  • Preview the photo you just took
  • Go to top of mail or SMS threads
  • Quick access to the music player
