How to use Burst Mode on your iPhone X (take, view, and save Burst Photos)

Not many #iPhoneX users realize just how powerful and fun their device’s camera is. In this short tutorial, we tell you one fun way to capture photos using Burst Mode.

Before we proceed let us remind you that you can contact us by using the link provided at the bottom of this page. When describing your issue, please be as detailed as possible so we can easily pinpoint a relevant solution. If you can, kindly include the exact error messages you are getting to give us an idea where to start. If you have already tried some troubleshooting steps before emailing us, make sure to mention them so we can skip them in our answers.

What is Burst Mode?

Burst Mode allows you to capture more photos in a very short time. In iOS devices, Burst Mode usually captures a sequence of photos at a rate of ten frames per second. This is a useful feature when you’re trying to capture the action that’s happening way too fast for your normal reaction. For example, capturing sports like skateboarding actions is best taken using burst mode instead of normal mode in order to take continuous shots. You can then simply pick the best frame later on and discard the rest of the Burst photos.

How to take and view Burst Photos

  1. Launch the Camera app.
  2. Prepare the scene you want to capture just like how you normally take a photo.
  3. Press and hold the Shutter button to take burst photos. You should notice that a counter will be displayed as you keep holding the shutter button. The number indicates how many photos you’ve taken so far. Afterwards, iOS will decide the which one of the photos is the best. If you don’t like it, you can pick the best one for you.
  4. Tap on the burst mode stack you want to view.
  5. Tap on Select… at the bottom.
  6. Press on the blue checkmark on each photo that you would like to keep. While checking the thumbnails, you should see a grey dot beneath the photos that has the best focus and composition.
  7. After deciding on what photos to keep, tap on Done at the upper right hand side. If you want to keep all burst photos, select Keep Everything. Or, if you only want to keep a select few, tap Keep Only [number] Favorites so your phone will delete the photos you don’t want.
  8. Now that you’ve selected which photos to keep, they should now be ungrouped and should be kept as normal photos in your Photos app.
