You Can Record and Take Pictures At The Same Time On Your iPhone. Here’s How.

I love TikTok more and more.

People are just so dang clever!

So, last night I was browsing TikTok before bed and BAM up pops a video teaching me that You Can Record and Take Pictures At The Same Time On Your iPhone!

Did you know this?! Because I did not.

I cannot tell you how many times my husband and I would be recording our kids and wish we could take pics too. And we’ve been able to this entire time without knowing it!

Here’s How You Can Record and Take Pictures At The Same Time On Your iPhone

First, open your camera and click “Video”.

Then hold the red record button and swipe right.

The screen will look like this:

Now, it will already be recording and that white round button to the right, is what you will click to take a phone while you are recording.

Photo taken on iPhone while also recording.

Genius, right?

So, give this a try! I cannot believe I just learned this iphone trick!
