How to switch to Video mode in the iOS 7 Camera app
If you've updated to iOS 7, you have probably noticed that a lot of the native apps and the way in which they function have changed. The Camera app is no exception and the way you toggle between modes, particularly video and photo, has also changed which has left some users confused.
Don't worry, video recording hasn't disappeared, you just access it a little differently in iOS 7, here's how:
- Launch the Camera app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
- The default mode is Photo as you can see underneath the capture area.
- Just to the left of that, you can see the word Video.
- To switch to Video mode, just swipe across the bottom menu to the right.
That's all there is to it, underneath the capture area you should now see video and the controls should have changed to video. Swiping to the left will return you to standard photo mode. You can also swipe even further to the left to access other modes such as square photos and panoramas.
