With the launch of Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, users now have the ability to shoot 12-megapixel photos and 4K videos at 30 fps. That’s four times the video resolution found on the iPhone 6, but how does it work? We have set up a new video test to find out exactly what it looks like …
In the video below, you’ll find 4K / UHD footage straight from the iPhone 6s. The footage was trimmed using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015, but no color correction was applied. This is exactly what you can get from the iPhone 6s using 4K video. Most of this video was shot on a tripod and slider, but handheld video is also great as the iPhone 6s uses digital stabilization and the 6s Plus uses optical image stabilization.

So what do you think of the iPhone 6s camera? Obviously, the 12-megapixel photos are a nice step up from the 8-megapixel iPhone 6. If you’re curious to see how the photo quality of the 6s compares to its predecessor, we’ve put together a detail comparison with sample photos. On top of that, if you missed the initial coverage, you can check out our double unboxing and impressions of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
At the moment, support for 4K is not widespread, but places like YouTube, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Instant Video all have 4K streaming capabilities. Unfortunately, the latest generation of Apple TV doesn’t include the ability to stream 4K video, so users may find themselves without the means to watch this high-resolution content natively. Prices for 4K / UHD TVs are steadily dropping, but at the moment a very small percentage of people use one.
If you want to enable 4K video recording on your iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, you can do so in the Settings app under Photos & Camera. What do you think of the 4K video quality on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus? Is this a feature you’ll actually be using, or just a gimmick?
