What You’ll Need

  • iPhone
  • Camera Stand or Something to Lean Your Phone On
  • Your Madonna Vogue Pose

Start by going into your phone’s Settings. Then scroll until you find Accessibility and click on it. Then scroll to where it says Voice Control. If you don’t have this feature turned on, install it and turn it on. Next, click Customize Commands and then Create New Command.

Where it says “Enter a special phrase” type Say Cheese. Beneath that, click where it says Action (Not Set) and then click Run Custom Gesture.  Press your thumb about where the button exists to take a photo. Save that and return to the command center. Now click where it says Application. Scroll to Camera and click that and save.

Now, open the camera, and point it where you want to take your photo. Once you have the shot framed say the phrase Say Cheese. This will now signal to your phone to take a photo whenever you have your camera open. You can use this same premise to create a variety of voice commands, but this one should stay your favorite since it was your first. And firsts are always memorable.
