The burst mode on your iPhone 7 allows you to take a number of pictures at once. As long as you keep holding the shutter button on your phone, it will continue taking the pictures until you let go of the button.
While the feature is praised by many as it allows users to pick the greatest looking picture from a set of similar pictures, some users just do not like it as they would only like for a single picture to be taken when they press/hold the shutter button.
Unfortunately, iOS, the iPhone’s operating system, does not allow users to turn off the burst mode on their phones. This means, there is no way you can turn off the burst mode while taking pictures on your iPhone.
However, there are some other solutions that you can use to temporarily disable the functionality of burst mode on iPhone 7/7Plus. Here are those solutions for you:
Method 1: Turn ON the Flash on Your iPhone
One way to disable burst mode on your iPhone while capturing images is to turn on the flash. When the flash is turned on, the Camera app will only take a single picture when you press the shutter button. It will not click dozens of pictures like it did before as simply the flash is unable to flash a lot of times in a short period of time.
So, the next time you want to take a picture without burst mode, simply keep the flash turned on and you should not have any issues.
Method 2: Press the Shutter Button Once
The burst mode is activated when you hold the shutter button a little longer. If you would like to take only a single picture, all you have to do is just press the shutter button once and that’s it.
Often, people have their fingers for a little longer than a press on the shutter button and that is when the burst mode gets activated.
Method 3:Use a Third-Party Camera App
If you do not want to go for the above solutions, then you will just have to ditch the stock Camera app on your iPhone and use a third-party app from the App Store.
There are a number of camera apps on the iOS App Store that have no burst mode enabled in them. You can get any of them on your iPhone and start taking pictures without worrying about burst mode.
So, that was how to disable Burst Mode on iPhone 7/7 Plus. To avoid any precious picture loss, we highly recommend you backup your photos regularly with Tenorshare iCareFone, a professional iOS backup tool that can selectively backup your iPhone photos to computer without using iTunes.
