[Note: This tip was originally published in my newsletter]
Your Apple Watch can be a remote shutter and viewfinder for your iPhone’s camera. Simply open the default camera app on your iPhone, then open the Camera app on your Watch (it has a similar, gray icon). After a second, a live feed of your iPhone’s camera will appear on your Watch, and you can tap to take the shot. This pairs great if you put your iPhone on a stand like the Benro Handheld Tripod and Selfie Stick or Gorillapod Magnetic (I own and like both).
Bonus Tip: If you tap your Watch’s camera app first, it’ll tell your iPhone to launch its Camera app and start the process. This way, you can just set your phone up on a stand, get your subjects in place, then start the process from your Watch.
Bonus Tip 2: Tap the (3) button in the lower right on your Watch to take a shot with a three-second timer.
Bonus Tip 3: 3D Touch on your Watch’s camera to adjust settings like HDR, flash, and whether Live Photos is active.
Thanks to The Mac Mommy for reminding me about this one
