How to take Burst Photos on iPhone 11 & iPhone 11 Pro / Pro Max and iOS 13

Since the release of iOS 13 and the new iPhone 11 & 11 Pro range, I have had quite a few people ask me about how to take a Burst photo on the phones.

Burst photos are are a series of photos taken right sequentially after each other, which then allow you to select the best one. This is most handy when you taking photos of high action or fast moving objects.

As an example below I took this photo in a series of burst photos when trying to capture the lightning in a storm. I took over 150 images in the burst, but just this 1 that captured the lightning strike.

Previously, in the previous generation of iPhone models (iPhone 10 and below)  you simply used to hold down the shutter button in the Camera App. That has all changed now, and you have to now Swipe Left (towards your camera roll) to activate Burst Mode. As long as you keep holding the button in to the left it will keep taking photos. If you hold the shutter button in (like you used to) the camera will start recording video
