How To Take A Photo In Night Mode On iPhone 11

The Night Mode on iPhone 11 series will be automatically activated whenever it detects the low-light situation. You will notice it from the color of the moon icon on the upper-right of the camera app screen. If the icon appears yellow, it means the Night Mode is On. Sometime you will find the moon icon is still in white color though you think the light is low. You can turn it on by tapping the Night Mode icon. For the complete guide, follow the steps below.

Step 1 – Open The Camera App

You can access the Camera app from the home screen after unlocking your iPhone 11, first. You can also open the iPhone’s camera by tapping the camera icon in the lower-right corner of the unlock screen or from the Control Center.

Step 2 – Adjust The Exposure Time

If your iPhone camera is already in a Night Mode, you will see the moon icon is yellow-colored. The number you see on the icon shows the exposure time. The duration of how long it takes to complete the capture. The exposure time will be set automatically, but you can change it as you want by dragging the slider above the shutter button below.

step 3 – Take A photo

After everything is set, you are ready to take a photo. Hold the camera nicely and tap the shutter button. Keep holding your iPhone 11 until the exposure time slider stops counting.

Additional Info

  1. Night Mode can only be used when you are taking a picture using the 1x Wide lens or 2x Telephoto lens (on iPhone 11 Pro).
  2. The Night Mode won’t work in a completely dark situation. You need at least some little light, like a candle or night light to illuminate the object.
  3. The longer the Exposure Time you choose, the more the light will be captured by the camera and you will get a brighter photo. However, the possibility to get a blurry picture is also bigger because you have to hold the iPhone longer. Therefore, if you decide to adjust to exposure time to its maximum or more than 3s, you may need to use a tripod.
