If you are one of the selfie-lovers, you must be very excited about the flash for selfies in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus introduced by Apple this September event. This feature can add extra lighting to your screen to improve the quality of selfies. However, not everyone can afford to upgrade to an iPhone 6s right away. Can the existing users of older iPhones like iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s or iPhone 5 enjoy the same perfect selfies feature? Of course they can! In this article we’ll tell you how to achieve flash selfies.


The way you’re going to achieve the same effect as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is by downloading an app called “Take Selfies FREE” on your device. It is a free piece of software which you can download straight away from the iOS App Store. This app will utilize the display of your device to be used as the flash and it will also enhance the overall experience when taking selfies in dark condition. Now let’s take a look at the step-by-step tutorial!

Step 1: Open App Store from your Home screen, then search “Take Selfies FREE” on the App Store search bar.

Step 2: Download and install the application here which is called, Take Selfies FREE – With Front Flash In Low-Light.


Step 3: After downloading the app, open it up. This app copies the same actions as the flash on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus where your screen becomes brighter than usual and acts as flash. You can see a timer in the upper right corner. Because this app is ad-supported so you might see several banners of ads when using this app.


Step 4: The timer is set on 3 seconds. After tapping on it, be ready and take selfie.

Step 5: After three seconds, the front of your screen will flash to help and light up your selfie.

Note that the brightness of the flash depends on the brightness of the screen. If you want the flash to be on max level then set the screen brightness to full for best results.

Below is the image comparison between default camera app and Take Selfie FREE app. The image on the left is from camera app while the other is from Take Selfies FREE app. It’s obvious that latter one is far better than the camera app for selfies.


There you have it! With the help of this app, you are able to take low light selfies without upgrading to an iPhone 6s. Share it if you like it! And please feel free to comment below and let us know your thoughts.
