Apple has finally added the option to change the resolution and frame rate of video capture in the camera app in the newly released iOS 13.2, resolving one of the biggest annoyances about creating video on an iPhone. There is only one problem: the new feature is only available on the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
It's not the biggest camera update in iOS 13.2 – that crown still goes to the new Deep Fusion "sweater mode" – but it's a highly anticipated one. Now – instead of leaving the camera app, go to the settings app, navigate to the camera menu, select the "record video" menu, and then select your video mode and frame rate – tap in the top right corner. If you tap the icon on the left, you can switch between 4K and HD (1080p), while the icon on the right allows you to switch between frame rate (30 or 60 fps for HD video or 30, 60 and 24 fps for 4K).
The only real question here is why, for God's sake, Apple limits this incredibly useful feature to the iPhone 11 setup – but if you're a frustrated iPhone videographer, consider another reason to upgrade.
