    Just review the series of pictures and choose which one is the best. You have a better chance to get a better shot....

    There is no way to turn it off when using the timer...from what I've read, this wasn't always present when using the timer, and came after the first update of iOS 8. Not sure what that means (whether it is a bug, or if it is a "feature").

    Other camera apps on the iPhone don't employ this step, so you might try that instead of using the native camera app if it really bothers you that badly...otherwise, send in a complaint to Apple and maybe enough people will do so as well, and they'll give you the ability to toggle such things off or on (if it is, indeed, a feature).

    This is not a very optimal "fix" as it also uses the flash for every photo...which tends to screw lighting up pretty badly for photos that don't need flash enabled.

    Just use the side Volume button (instead of timer) when u click selfies, thats a solution.

    I just got the iPhone 7 last week (Nov 2016) and am so disappointed that still--every time I use the timer, it takes 10 crappy photos instead of one good one. So dumb!! Who do I complain to about this useless feature?????

    I agree. I rarely use the flash. I want to take a photo without flash, using the TIMER and not get 10 burst LOW QUALITY photos!!

    When you take a burst, they are all low quality, knotsure. That is the problem!

    If you have an iphone 7 plus and set the HDR to ON, you can turn off the flash and still use the timer without getting the auto burst. Got to keep the HDR on though.

    I just want to get rid of this Burst thing all together. Apple is starting to act like Microsoft; assuming they know what tools we will like. Is there a way to disable Burst?
