Note: This only works on on the iPhone 5 and 5th generation iPod Touch.
When you are recording a video and you want to grab a snap picture of what you are recording but you don’t want to pause or stop recording, don’t fret because T4I has the solution for that.
Sadly, this does work not on my iPhone 4s. And also on iPads, and most probably older generation iPhones, iPods and iPads. So why post a how to about this? Because the iPhone 5 and 5th generation iPod Touch can. So it’s good to know that this function is native to these iOS devices (because there’s probably an App for that already).
Anyway, so here’s how to snap a picture while recording video on your iPhone
1. While recording video, simply tap the small camera icon on the lower left of the screen and it will automatically grab a picture of what you are recording without having to pause or stop your video recording.
And that’s it! It’s that simple. Really.
Why they did not make this feature available for all iOS devices eludes me, but who knows, on the next iOS update, they could make this available for everyone.
