New QuickTake feature comes to iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max with iOS 14

Apple is bringing the QuickTake feature to iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max. The update was launched with iOS 14 beta after the WWDC Keynote event. The feature was originally introduced for iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro max in 2019.

QuickTake lets users record a video while holding their phone’s shutter button in photo mode. This helps in recording a video moment right away, without the need to switch between Camera modes.


The feature was exclusive for Apple’s iPhone 11 lineup from 2019. However, with iOS 14, it will be compatible with Apple’s devices from 2018 as well. QuickTake is also a part of Apple’s new second-generation iPhone SE 2020.

iPhone will also be getting some updates to QuickTake and users will be able to capture videos from holding down the volume down button as well. This will be an even faster way to record videos in a hurry. The Volume Up button is also used to take burst photos on their iPhones.
