You can capture video on your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro Max while simultaneously playing music or podcast on it. Here are the details on it.

If there is one iPhone annoyance that has been around forever and we didn’t expect to ever change, it’s the fact that audio stops playing when you record a video. But that doesn’t appear to be the case with the new iPhones.

Previously whether you were listening to music, an audiobook, or a podcast, the audio would be paused whenever you started to record a video.

That might be expected behavior for some but it can be frustrating if you’re listening with earphones. But as 9to5Mac notes, things seem to be different when you use QuickTake.

QuickTake is a new feature that allows users of iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max to quickly take a video even when they’re in photo mode. Just pressing and holding the shutter button is enough to begin a video capture and swiping to the side locks the recording function in place. And when you use QuickTake it seems audio continues to play.

So you can imagine my glee this morning when I was playing music from my iPhone 11 and taking a few shots of my kids before school, only to discover that music in QuickTake mode continues to play during video capture! This even works if you use the right-slide gesture to lock the QuickTake camera into video recording.

Whether that’s how things are supposed to work or this is a bug remains to be seen. If things change in a future iOS update we’ll have our answer.
