How to shoot 4K video with 60fps on the iPhone 8/Plus and iPhone X


Apple has significantly upgraded the cameras of the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, compared to last year's iPhone 7 series. New, larger sensor takes in 83% more light than the kit on the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus. A dedicated ISP, and Apple's new A11 Bionic processor with custom-made GPU, make possible real-time image and light processing, but the biggest upgrade seems to be in video capture. 

The iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X are able to record 4K videos with smooth 60fps, and 1080p slow-mo footage with 240fps, which should turn out some incredible results, making the new iPhones an indispensable video cam you will always have on you. How can you take advantage of the new 4K 60fps mode on your shiny iPhone 8

Well, as usual, you go to Settings>Camera, and pick what video mode you would like to shoot with. Have in mind, however, that 4K 60fps video will take the hefty 400 MB of your storage per minute recorded, even in the new high-efficiency video standard that Apple introduced to its iPhone portfolio.
