The iPhone 12 is getting a fantastic update to its video capabilities if a new loss is to be believed.
This feature is the ability to record in 4K at 120 fps or 240 fps. The statement comes from YouTuber EverythingApplePro, based on the results of leaker Max Weinbach within the beta of the recent Apple iOS 14. The confirmation from the Weinbach insider to Apple says that these are actually present to test them before the iPhone 12 is released around September year.
Currently, the iPhone 11 series and iPhone SE (2020) can record 4K at a maximum of 60 fps and 1080p up to 240 fps. This means that the new video features are probably related to the more powerful Aic Bionic processor which is expected to debut on the iPhone 12.
These 4K video features are expected to be exclusive to the higher spec iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max models, rather than the basic iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Max.
This series of four models is the first for Apple, as well as the variation in size. The series will start at 5.4 inches for iPhone 12, will rise to 6.1 inches for iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro and will come out at 6.7 inches for iPhone 12 Pro Max. The design is thought to feature a notch similar to the iPhone 11 series, although smaller, and with flat sides instead of curved ones, which refer to the iPhone 5S and previous straight-faced iPhones.
Standard iPhones will likely come with a combination of main lens and ultrawide cameras, just like the iPhone 11. The iPhone 12 Pro will get those two cameras plus a telephoto lens and a LiDAR depth sensor. The LiDAR camera, which first appeared on the iPad Pro (2020), is the first for the iPhone, and will hopefully make Apple’s already excellent special photo effects and AR applications work even better.
Before then, we are slowly learning more about Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 14, thanks to the recently launched beta. The beta contains Apple’s latest and greatest software features such as customizable widgets, a new type of input called Back Tap, and other refinements that could make iPhone 12 an even bigger update when it launches in the fall.
