Camera Timer

You can access the timer by selecting the timer icon on the top of your Camera app. You have the option of turning it off, like it’s off right now (screenshot), or doing a three second, or ten second timer. If I select a three second timer when I go to take a picture, I can see the three seconds is now yellow (screenshot). If I take a photo and select the shutter button, I’m going to get a countdown of 3,2,1, and then it’s going to snap my picture.

It's easy to put yourself in the picture using the self-timer on your iPhone's camera. The process is simple thanks to the timer icon located prominently at the top of your screen in the Camera app. When you tap on the icon you’ll be able to choose between a 3-second timer or a 10-second one. Once you select the countdown time you prefer, tap the shutter release and wait for the countdown to finish (your iPhone camera's flash will blink as the timer counts down) before the photo is taken. This should allow you time to get yourself in the picture or stabilize your phone in order to avoid shaky images.
