How to Enable 4K video recording at 60 FPS on Apple iPhone X

The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X offers native 4K video recording at 60 fps. Here is a brief tutorial to help you out with the settings.

If you are into videography, then Apple iPhone X is one of the best smartphones that offers cinematic quality video footages. This time around, for the first time ever in a smartphone, Apple iPhones can record 4K video footages with up to a whopping 60 frames per second. Not only Apple iPhone X, the Apple iPhone 8, and the Apple iPhone 8 Plus does support this feature and one has to thank the desktop class 4th generation 64 bit Apple A11 Bionic processor.

If we look at the rivalry Android ecosystem, none of the flagship smartphone does offer this capability, so, Apple is light years ahead compared to Android flagship smartphones. So, if you are into this, then only the 10th anniversary Apple iPhones can help you out.

However, out of the box, this feature will not be enabled. One has to manually enable this feature under the settings and here are the guidelines to do the same. Take note that, Apple iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus does offer 4K video recording capability, but the frame rate is limited to 30 FPS.

Go to setting > camera > record video > select 4K at 60 fps. Hola, you are good to go now.

As the base model for the newer generation starts with 64 GB, you would be able to record a decent length of videos even in the base model (on all three variants). Do consider the fact that, the 1 minute long 4K 60 fps video footages requires 400 MB of space, so, if you are capturing a 10-minute video the footage will weight around 4G and 30 minutes of recording needs at least 12 GB of free space on your iPhone.

Do note that, not all devices have the capacity to playback the 4K video at 60 FPS.
