Funny Friday: iPhone Selfie Prank

Do your friends and family have some cringe worthy photos of you on their phones that they hold against you? If yes, we have a little trick you can play on them to get them back. It is so easy to trick your friends, family, colleagues, or anyone else with an iPhone into sending you an unexpected selfie via iMessage, and we thought we would share how to do it with you! Have fun with this one!

(Please note: this only works if the recipient is working on an iPhone with iOS 8 installed and is connected to the internet either through Wi-Fi or 4G)

Step 1.

Pick your recipient.

Text them the following: “See the little camera button to the left of the type box? If you touch it and hold it, a little camera icon will appear and the screen will change to a front facing camera view. If you then swipe up to the camera button, you’ll see loads of filter options”
