Get array of posts from the current archive page loop

Classic WordPress loop (for example in archive.php) looks like this:

if ( have_posts() ) :     while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();         get_template_part( 'template-parts/content', get_post_format() );     endwhile; endif; 

I want to get an array of post objects on archive page without having to do this:

$  my_posts = array(); while ( have_posts() ) {   the_post();   $  my_posts[] = $  post; }  // $  my_posts is array of post objects 

Is there any simpler method to get it?
