Millions of people, including you, take a selfie or wefie and share it on social media daily. You have tried many poses and filter effects for your selfies. Now you’ve run out of ideas for taking a selfie on your iPhone 11? Why don’t you try to take a slofie? What is that? And how to take a slofie on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max?

What Is Slofie?

When Apple introduced the iPhone 11 series at the 2019 September event, they also came up with a new term – slofie. It’s neither a new feature nor an app on the iPhone 11 series or iOS 13. It stands for” slow-motion selfie.”

Apple provides iPhone 11 series with a 12 MP Truedepth Camera, which can support slo-mo video on the front and main cameras. You can create a selfie in slow-mo mode using your iPhone’s front camera.

Tips on How To Take A Perfect Slofie On The iPhone 11 Series

Get Started

  1. Get the Camera app of your iPhone 11 ready.
  2. By default, it will be set to the primary camera. To set it to the front camera, tap the perfective flip button in the lower-right corner of the screen. 
  3. Swipe the camera menu to the right to select Slo-mo.
  4. Choose the background or decide what kind of movement you want to record.
  5. Tap the recording button when you are ready and tap it back to stop recording.

Be More Creative

Taking a slow-motion selfie is a snap. But, to take a perfect slofie on your iPhone 11, you may need to put in some more effort. You need to be more creative, especially if you wish to gain lots of thumbs up on social media. You can start with a simple movement, like shaking your head a bit or placing a hair dryer in front of your face to get a wind effect on your hair.

Playing around with splashing water in the backyard or in the middle of the rain is another creative idea to take a fabulous slofie. The iPhone 11 series comes with an IP68 rating which can stay in the water for up to 30 minutes (maximum depth of 2 meters for iPhone 11 and 4 meters for iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max). Therefore, you don’t have to worry your iPhone will get water damaged while playing with water splash to get slofies.

Add Music

Slofie can also stand for slow-motion wefie. Taking a wefie with friends using Slo-mo can be fun as well. For instance, you can make fun or dance movements at the party and record them using the front camera Slo-mo feature. But you need to know one crucial thing before posting a slofie with a music background. Everything in your slofie will be slowed down, including the music or any sound in the background.

To get the perfect slofie results, turn the sound off before sharing it on social media. After you turn off the original sound on your slofie, you can replace it with another music using iMovie or other video editing apps.
