Introduced with the 2019 ‌iPhone‌ lineup, QuickTake is a feature that lets you record video by holding down the shutter button in photo mode so you can capture a video-worthy moment right away without needing to swap camera modes.

At launch, QuickTake was only included in Apple's new ‌iPhone‌ lineup, but with iOS 14, the older ‌iPhone‌ XR, XS, and XS Max can use the option. QuickTake was also added to the new 2020 iPhone SE.

Apple is also introducing a new feature that lets you capture QuickTake video on compatible devices by holding the Volume Down button, which is an even faster way to record video.

Holding the Volume Up button allows users to capture burst photos, which is another new feature.

The iPhone X is neglected as quickly as the iPad 3 was.

That’s why I like Apple
Bringing a new feature to old devices? Supporting their devices for 5 years? Improving privacy with various new options? Etc etc

Cool.
