Both, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus come with iOS 9 pre-installed. iOS 9 helps these devices to offer a better user experience.

They have included Proactive Assistant, Improved Maps, 3D Touch Feature, Improved Performance, Improved Battery Life, Completely new 12-MP Camera Sensor with the 4K Video Recording Feature etc.

As I mentioned before, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus come with a new camera sensor, which despite shooting photos at maximal quality and speed, you can also record 4K Video on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

But, 4K Video Recording on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus has its own disadvantage. The video is recorded in super 4K Quality, but it also consumes a lot of memory, making it difficult to manage your free storage on a 16GB iPhone 6S or 16GB iPhone 6S Plus.

So, in this post, I am going to show you How to Enable or Disable 4K Video Recording on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

How to Enable or Disable 4K Video Recording on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus

When you first buy the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, the 4K Video Recording is disabled by default. Apple has set this feature as disabled by default because it consumes a lot of storage and you will run out of memory fast if you record every video in 4K quality. That is the reason why I am going to show you How to Enable or Disable 4K Video Recording on iPhone.

How to Enable or Disable 4K Video Recording on iPhone

To enable or disable 4K video recording, follow these steps:

Step 1: Unlock your device and open the Settings App. Scroll Down and find the Photos & Camera Option.

Step 2: After you open Photos & Camera Menu, look for the Camera Setting and find the Record Video Option.How to Enable or Disable 4K Video Recording on iPhone 6S & iPhone 6S Plus

Step 3: On Record Video Option, 4 different options will appear. You can choose any of these 4 options. These options include: 720p at 30fps, 1080p at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps and 4K at 30fps.

To enable the 4K Video Recording on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, select the 4K at 30fps Option.

The same steps can be followed to Disable 4K Video Recording on iPhone 6S & iPhone 6S Plus. Go to the 4 options and deselect the 4K at 30fps option and select another quality option.

Selecting the 4K Video Recording Option isn’t a good idea because these videos will consume a huge storage size for a short clip. Down below, you can find the size of each recording option for a 1 minute recorded footage.

  • 720p at 30fps: 60MB
  • 1080p at 30fps: 130MB
  • 1080p at 60fps: 200MB
  • 4K at 30fps: 375MB

As you see from the info below, 4K Video Recording on iPhone 6S & 6S Plus consumes a lot of space for 1 minute footage. So, it is recommended to use 4K Video Recording on iPhone when you really need that much quality.
