Slofies are currently only available for the iPhone 11 lineup owners and this is most likely a marketing scheme used by Apple to promote the sales of the new devices. I would expect selfies to be unlocked on the XS and the X terminals after a couple of months. But until then, let’s check out how you can snap a slofie with an iPhone 11, 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max.
What’s a Slofie?
To sum up all that’s been said above, a slofie is a video version of a selfie shot at 120 frames per second which allows for the video to be slow motioned at a high quality!
Why Slofies Only On iPhone 11?
Apple’s official explanation for the exclusivity of the Slofie feature is based on the new 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera hardware that is mounted on the iPhone 11 lineup!
How To Slofie With iPhone 11
1. Open the Camera app.
2. Flip for the front-facing camera, by pressing the Camera perspective switcher in the bottom-right corner of the app.
3. Swipe-right on the Camera mode list until you reach Slo-Mo.
4. Press the shutter button and record your Slofie.
5. Press the shutter again to finish.
Fact: The Slofie is saved in the Photos app.
Fact: If you try to follow the same steps on the iPhone XS or older iPhone model that’s running iOS 13, the Camera perspective is automatically switched back to the rear-facing camera when you select the Slo-Mo mode at step 3!
