A quick change in the settings will enable full 60-frames-per-second video recording on Apple’s latest iPhones.
Prior to the release of the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus, the iPhone captured video in a suitable 30 frames per second (FPS). With the launch of Apple’s latest smartphones, the company opted to enable full 60 fps recording capabilities.
By default, both new models are set to record in the traditional 30 FPS arrangement. With a few taps, however, you can enable the new frame rate.
- Launch the Settings app.
- Scroll down and tap on Photos & Camera.
- At the bottom of the options listed, you’ll find a switch to turn on 60 FPS.
Once enabled, simply use the app to record video as you normally would.
During playback you should be able to see a difference in video quality, with the 60 FPS clips being smoother overall. Of course, with your iPhone capturing more information due to the new feature, the size of saved video files is also going to increase. Should you decide the new frame rate isn’t worth the added file size, you can always hop back into settings and turn 60 FPS capturing off.
