The iPhone 14 Pro has a great quality camera and is capable of taking amazing photos and videos. You may be wondering how to change the resolution on your iPhone 14 Pro so you can get the best quality videos.
In this article, we will tell you about the different video settings you can use on the iPhone 14 Pro and when you might want to use them; we’ll tell you how to change the settings to suit your needs.
Resolution and fps when recording videos
You can change both the resolution and the frames per second (fps) for videos in the Camera app. If you increase either the resolution or the fps, the file size for your videos will be larger.
Using the controls in the Camera app
You can easily change both the quality of the picture (resolution) and the frame rate from within the iPhone Camera app.
- Open the Camera on your iPhone and make sure you are using Video or Cinematic mode.
- You should see a pair of controls on the Camera screen:
- With your iPhone in portrait orientation: The two controls are located in the upper-right corner of the screen.
- With your iPhone in landscape orientation: The two controls are located in the upper-left corner of the screen.
- The left control button is used to change the resolution. Tap it to toggle through HD and 4k modes.
- The control button to the right is used to change the fps.
- With 4k resolution, you can choose from 24, 30 and 60 fps in Video mode and 24 and 30 fps in Cinematic mode.
- If you are using HD resolution, you can choose 30 or 60 fps in Video mode and 30 fps in Cinematic mode.
Your iPhone 14 Pro can automatically adjust the fps so that the video quality is optimized in low-light situations. This will reduce the frame rate to 24 fps when there is insufficient light.
- Open the Settings app.
- Scroll down and tap on Camera, then select Record Video.
- Tap on Auto FPS. Select Auto 30 fps or Auto 30 & 60 fps.
Change the resolution of shared videos
Your iPhone 14 Pro will automatically share videos in HDR when you send them to other Apple devices running iOS 13.4, iPadOS 13.4, macOS 10.15.4 or later. If you want to change this to SDR:
- Open Settings and tap on Camera.
- Tap on Record Video, then toggle the switch next to HDR Video.
Enhanced Stabilization for iPhone 14 Pro videos
One of the new Camera features on the iPhone 14 Pro is Enhanced Stabilization. This is designed to make your videos less jittery. It works by zooming in a little in a way that keeps the subject or focus of the video from jumping around in the video as the iPhone moves.
This is a useful feature for shots where the person holding the iPhone isn’t able to stand still. The downside to using this feature is that part of the video is cropped. If you don’t want this feature on:
- Go to Settings and tap on Camera.
- Tap on Record Video, then toggle off Enhanced Stabilization.
ProRes on iPhone 14 Pro models
To access the ProRes video settings on your iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max:
- Open Settings and tap on Camera.
- Tap Formats, then toggle the switch next to Apple ProRes.
Now you will see a ProRes button near the top of the Camera screen. It will automatically be disabled (have a slash through it) until you tap it to enable it. When you have ProRes enabled in the Camera app, you will see “Max Time: [#] min” near the top of the screen. If you don’t already know, ProRes videos are huge, so you should keep this in mind before you try to record a lengthy video, especially if you have the 128 GB iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max.
