Long exposure photography involves capturing a photo over a longer period of time than normal, this is done by using a slower shutter speed. Since there is no way to adjust the shutter speed in the native Camera app, your iPhone camera is not the most optimal device you can use for long exposure photos. However, you can still achieve similar results from Live Photos to create long exposure shots.
