If you want to take a picture of a quick action, burst mode is the way to go. Burst photos take pictures in quick succession, offer a range of photos to choose from and ensure at least one great photo comes out. You may notice that your new second-generation iPhone SE doesn't seem to have Burst mode like your old iPhone. Is it gone? Not at all.
For starters, we need to look back at 2019. One of the major updates to Apple's Camera app last year was "QuickTake", which added the ability to quickly create a video in photo mode by simply holding down the shutter release button. Apple has added QuickTake to the 2020 iPhone SE, the only iOS device with a Home button to use the feature. Of course, Burst mode used the same long-press function, so at first glance it seems gone forever. Instead, Apple has slightly changed the way you activate it.
To use Burst mode on your iPhone SE (2nd generation), as well as the iPhone 1
You have to swipe left quickly because you hold the shutter too long for QuickTake. You get a video instead of your photos (although video is technically just a series of photos too).
Note that the number of snaps taken is now at the location of the shutter button, while Apple previously located it directly above the shutter button. So if you are a righteous one, your thumb can block the number that is visible when you hold your iPhone in a certain way.
