I was taking pictures with my iPhone 5s one evening when I noticed something funny. After tapping on the native camera icon, the camera app appeared upside down! The shutter button and even the live viewfinder was upside down. Even stranger was that if I flipped my phone upside down, the camera app would rotate upside down as well, thinking it needed to correct its orientation.

It was a neat effect, but the novelty wore off quite quickly as this made things a bit difficult since I couldn’t press the shutter button with my thumb anymore. I closed the app and restarted it to find the camera back right side up again.

It left me wondering if I found an easter egg or something, but it hasn’t happened again so it just must have been my lucky evening.
