We have been waiting for this kind of improvements for a long time and I think that Apple has decided to pay attention to the users and allow to change both the resolution and the quality of the videos we recorded from the iPhone from the device’s own camera application.
This function has appeared in the second beta of iOS 13.2 although, for now and we do not know if forever, it is only available for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
Changing the quality of videos in iOS is now easier
The resolution that we can use in videos recorded by the iPhone depends directly on our device, but we have options ranging from 720p resolution and 30 fps to 4K resolution and 60 fps . So far if we wanted to change the quality of the videos recorded on the iPhone we had to go to Settings> Camera> Record video , with iOS 13.2 and the new iPhone is now easier.
As we can see, now in the camera interface the quality we have selected appears when we are going to record a video. We have on the one hand the quality of the recording and on the other the frames per second to which the video will be recorded. We can play in each of them independently to choose the desired quality and these are all available options:
- 720p at 30 fps.
- 1080 HD at 30 fps.
- 1080 HD at 60 fps.
- 4K at 24 fps.
- 4K at 30 fps.
- 4K at 60 fps.
It is a highly anticipated change that allows us to select the right quality depending on the moment . You may just want to record a video for social networks and with HD quality you have more than enough, but you may want to record another video in which you want the highest quality at 4K and 60 fps.
Until now you had to go to the iPhone settings before recording, but this is something that was not comfortable and practically nobody did . The normal thing so far was to leave a default quality regardless of the type of video you were going to record, now users of the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro can choose it from the camera.
