iPhone 14: How to Enable 4K Cinematic Mode

Apple increased the available resolutions for iPhone 14 models while filming in Cinematic Mode. What Cinematic Mode is and how to activate the new higher 4K resolution settings are covered in this post.

When you're recording video, Cinematic Mode uses Dolby Vision HDR and a method known as "rack focus" to smoothly change the focus from one subject to another. To produce depth of field, it locks the attention on the scene's main topic while blurring the surrounding. Cinematic mode automatically adjusts the focal point to this new topic and blurs the backdrop if you move the camera to center on a new subject later on or if a new subject joins the scene.

For instance, if a second person enters the frame while you are recording video of someone else, your iPhone will automatically alter the background blur to lock focus on the new subject. If the person's face is turned away from the camera, it will even instantly return to the original topic, creating an advanced professional filmmaking effect.

Video in Cinematic Mode on iPhone 13 series models may be captured in 1080p at 30 frames per second. Apple enhanced Cinematic mode for the iPhone 14 series, which now supports recording in 4K at both 30 and 24 frames per second.

Cinematic mode movies can now be captured in 4K on all four iPhone 14 models, offering a better quality capture, at either 24 frames per second (film style) or 30 frames per second. You can adapt to the resolution by using the procedures below.

  1. Launch the Settings app on your ‌iPhone 14‌.
  2. Scroll down and tap through to Camera.
  3. Tap Record Cinematic.
  4. Select either 4K at 24 fps or 4K at 30 fps.

A minute of Cinematic video will require 135MB of storage when 4K at 24 frames per second (film style) is chosen, and 170MB of storage when 4K at 30 frames per second is chosen (higher resolution).
