Angular – Waiting until ngIf is ready to avoid undefined error for elementRef inside it

The input element is undefined after inputVisibleIfThisIsTrue = true because it is inside an ngIf, I could use a delay but what if use transitions and effects I don’t want to worry about how much time the delay is set to.

if (this.something) {
    this.inputVisibleIfThisIsTrue = true;
    this.input.nativeElement.focus(); // this.input is undefined because ngIf takes time

So how can I only use this.input.nativeElement.focus() when the ngIf is ready? Is there an event that an observer could subscribe to?
