One of iPhone 14’s best features WON’T work unless you spend £100 extra

APPLE fans buying the new iPhone this week might want to think again as one big feature isn’t all it seems.

The iPhone 14 Pro is supposed to pack all the bells and whistles.

But the cheapest of the product line – costing £1099 – is actually missing a key option.

It turns out that the 128GB version of the iPhone 14 Pro won’t be able to record the very best videos like the other Pro and Pro Max models.

That’s because this particular iPhone 14 Pro doesn’t support 4K ProRes video recording.

According to Apple, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max support ProRes video recording in the Camera app at 1080p 30 fps with the 128GB storage option, and up to 4K 30 fps with 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options.

This means anyone wanting to shoot the highest possible quality video on the iPhone 14 Pro 128GB won’t be able to.

So if superior video is a must for you, you might want to consider the 256GB version instead.

For most people it shouldn’t be too much of an issue though.

4K ProRes is Apple’s own special tech standard – known as a video codec –  mostly used in professional video productions.

It’s not clear why Apple doesn’t allow the 128GB iPhone 14 Pro to shoot 4K ProRes.

But as Mac Rumors notes, it’s probably due to the massive amount of space that such videos take up.

A one-minute 10-bit ProRes video takes up about 1.7GB in 1080p, while in 4K it swallows up 6GB.

With all your apps and other stuff, 128GB doesn’t leave much room for huge 4K videos.

iPhone 14 specs and features

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro come with 6.1-inch displays but the Plus and Pro Max models are upped to 6.7-inches.

There are five colours to choose from, including Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Purple, and Red.

Apple has kept last year’s A15 chip to power the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, while the Pro range is upgraded to a mightier new A16 chip.

Apple has also upgraded its cameras, claiming that the iPhone 14 can achieve better results in challenging lighting environments, offering 49 per cent better low-light image capture.

There’s a larger sensor and faster focus, with an f/1.5 aperture.

According to Apple, it’s now possible to capture night-mode photographs much quicker.

And the selfie camera is also improved with a faster aperture, offering a 39 per cent boost to low-light selfies.

There are some new safety features too, like car crash detection that can automatically notify the emergency services if you’re in danger.

Apple has also added a new emergency feature to get help even when you’re off the grid in a remote location.
