Apple iPhone 15 Pro, Pro Max can now record spatial videos

Just a few hours ago, Apple began rolling out the iOS 17.2 update to all eligible iPhones. Beside the Journal app, and security fixes, the new update brings a very special camera feature exclusive to the latest iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max models.

“iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max feature the most powerful camera systems we’ve ever developed, including the best video quality in any smartphone. And now, we’re setting a new bar for what’s possible, enabling users to record special moments just as they happened. Spatial videos are magical, and we can’t wait for users to experience them on Apple Vision Pro early next year,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

Here’s how to record spatial video on iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max:

With the Camera app open in Video mode, rotate the iPhone to landscape orientation, tap the spatial video on-screen button (Vision Pro device-shaped icon), and then tap record.

iPhone starts recording video from both the advanced Main and Ultra Wide cameras and scales the field of view from the Ultra Wide camera to match that of the Main camera, which is then saved into a single video file.

Spatial videos are captured in full HD (1080p) at 30 frames per second in standard dynamic range. With advanced computational videography techniques and HEVC compression, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will be able to store multimedia content in a compact file size.

And, when the user gets hold of the Apple Vision Pro early next year, he/she can view the same videos in 3D on the spatial computer device.

It should be noted that the spatial video recorded on iPhone 15 Pro models can be shared with other iPhones and devices and can be viewed in normal 2D video format.

Also, all the spatial video recordings on the iPhone 15 Pro models will be automatically stored separately in a dedicated album aptly called ‘Spatial’.
