For iPhone 11, Apple has seriously redesigned the camera application, allowing, for example, to quickly record video directly from photo mode.
QuickTake Clip Video with Camera Shutter Icon or Volume Button
On supported models, you can record QuickTake videos in the Photo mode. When recording a QuickTake video, you can move the record button and lock it where the lock icon is displayed, so that you can easily take ordinary photos and change settings during recording:
- To start recording QuickTake video, in the “Photo” mode, tap and hold the camera shutter icon;
- Drag the shutter button to the right and release it when it is located on top of the lock icon to record without holding the button;
- Both buttons (record button and shutter button) will appear under the frame;
- Tap the shutter button to take a regular photo while recording a QuickTake video;
- Tap the record button to stop recording.
Note: Video will be recorded as long as you hold the button down.
But, as it turned out, this is only half the trick: if you don’t want to keep your finger on the shutter icon, you can simply press and hold any of the volume buttons – yes, this will also allow you to record video, even when in photography mode.
Obviously, this method is not suitable for long videos, but quickly capturing an interesting moment with its help can be quite convenient.
