Record HD or 4K video with your iPhone or iPad

Learn how to set the Camera app to take high-quality videos.

You can use your iPhone or iPad to record video in high-quality formats — from 720p HD at 30 fps, all the way up to 4K at 60 fps, depending on the model of your device.

Use the Settings app to select a video format and frame rate:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap Camera, then tap Record Video.
  3. Select from the list of video formats and frame rates that your iPhone or iPad supports. 

When you open the Camera app and select Video, the format that you've chosen (for example, "4K • 60") appears at the top of the screen.
