On the iPhone 14 models, Action mode has been designed by Apple to help capture smooth-looking video that adjusts to significant shakes, motion, and vibrations, even when video is being captured in the middle of the action.

The feature is built into the iPhone's stock Camera app, and when enabled, should allow you to capture video that looks almost as if you were using a gimbal to do so. Action mode can record in up to 2.8K at 60 fps, and it supports Dolby Vision HDR, ensuring very good video quality.

Action mode can also be optimized for when you're shooting in lower-light conditions, albeit with a small decrease in stabilization. You can do so by following the steps below.

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap through to Camera.
  3. Tap Record Video.
  4. Toggle on the switch next to Action Mode Lower Light.


That's all there is to it. Action mode will now decrease the stabilization to optimize for less bright scenes.
