Taking Burst Shots on iPhone 11 and 11 Pro

The main feature of the new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro is its new camera, probably the best on the market. But the new devices don’t just come with improved sensors, the camera application has been completely revamped and in addition to seeing shaded areas outside what we’re framing, there are also some new exclusive features.

With iOS 13.2 comes one of the most eagerly awaited functions by all users and we also told you a few days ago about the new QuickTake function, which allows you to record a video quickly in a matter of tenths of a second. However QuickTake changes the way to take several pictures at once, which is known as a burst, and today we are going to tell you how it is done now.

Until now, to take a photo burst on the iPhone so we only had to press and hold the shoot button . However on the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro if we do this we will activate QuickTake to switch and record a video quickly. That’s why now Apple has changed the way to make a photo burst , and these are the steps you have to follow

  • On the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro open the Camera application.
  • Slide the Shoot button quickly to the left, or down if your iPhone is held horizontally, without releasing the screen.
  • You’ll see a new interface that shows the photos you’re taking, and iPhone will give you a subtle vibration back.
  • You have to be very fast to make it work properly.


As we see Apple has started to expand the gestures we can use in the iOS interface , now they are also available in the camera. These gestures are not difficult to understand or reproduce, but you should know them because if nobody tells you about them you might not even notice them. As we can see, you can still make bursts on iPhone 11, although this slider function is exclusive to the new devices.
