The iPhone 11 and 12 bring some fantastic improvements to the camera, including an ultra-wide lens, impressive night mode, and more. However, the operation of some previous features has changed. Follow how to use burst mode with iPhone 11 and 12 cameras.
You’ve probably built up muscle memory for the burst camera function on your iPhone. If you have just received a iPhone 11 or 12, (or you just haven’t taken a burst photo in a while), you’ve probably noticed that holding down no longer activates burst mode.
Pressing and holding the shutter button on the iPhone 11 and 12 series now activates QuickTake, a way to quickly shoot videos without switching to photo mode. Here is the new gesture to use burst mode …
How to use burst mode with iPhone 11 and 12 cameras
- Press and immediately slide the shutter button to the left for portrait photos
- Immediately press and slide the shutter button up for landscape shots
- Let go when you’re done turning
- That’s all! 😄
Here’s what the process looks like:
When you’re ready to shoot in burst mode, make a smooth squeeze and slide movement of the shutter release button up in landscape mode or left when shooting in portrait orientation.
You will see the burst mode counter appear in the middle of where the shutter button is normally located.
If you don’t slide your finger up quickly enough after pressing the shutter button, this is what you’ll see when QuickTake is activated.
