Why iPhone Takes Your Picture Every 5 Seconds


Recently, iPhone users have become afraid that the front facing camera might be taking photos of them every five seconds. As seen in these types of videos.

But is iPhone actually taking your photo? And if so, why?

Well, it’s true that the infrared camera activates about every five seconds and shoots out 30,000 invisible dots. This isn’t the phone taking a photo per say, but it is checking to see what’s in front of it.
