Hey there, tech aficionado! Get ready to step into the third dimension with your trusty iPhone 15 Pro—because the future called, and it wants its cool back. With iOS 17.2, your latest pocket companion is about to turn the video world upside down, or should we say, inside out?
Just when you thought your video skills were maxed out, Apple swoops in with spatial video recording. Think of it as your gateway to creating mini 3D masterpieces, all set for playback on the much-anticipated, and wallet-wincing, Vision Pro headset.
To kick things off, you’ll find a new toggle in the Camera settings—flick it on, and a shiny new button pops up in the Camera app. But here’s the kicker: these spatial videos are in 1080p at a smooth 30 fps. The catch? Your iPhone needs to be as stable as your love for coffee on a Monday morning, and yes, landscape is the way to go.
Now, don’t go looking for extra depth on your iPhone’s screen—it’s serving 2D realness until Vision Pro comes to town. But in the hands of the press, who got a sneak peek sans photos (because Apple loves a good mystery), these spatial videos are all the rage, with depth that’ll have you reaching out to touch the air.
Imagine this: you’re filming a chef’s sushi-rolling wizardry, and as they hold up the finished roll, your iPhone plays focus tug-of-war like a pro. Move in, and the sushi pops like it’s ready to leap off the screen. It’s a bit of culinary magic, iPhone style.
Critics are chiming in, too, with thumbs up for the 3D realism and ease of recording. But let’s face it, with a Vision Pro price tag that has us coughing up our morning latte, we’re all just window-shopping this futuristic fun.
Still, Apple’s not stopping at just recording—Final Cut Pro will soon join the spatial party, making sure your 3D sushi rolls are cut to cinematic perfection. It’s an impressive peek at what’s to come, even if, for now, most of us are sticking to the 2D sidelines.
