Video App Features on Your iPhone 6s - dummies

By Nancy C. Muir

Using the Videos app on your iPhone, you can watch downloaded movies or TV shows, as well as media that you’ve synced from iCloud or your Mac or PC.

In addition, iPhone 6s sports both a front and rear video camera that you can use to capture your own videos, and by downloading the iMovie app for iPhone (a more limited version of the longtime mainstay on Mac computers), you add the capability to edit those videos. The 4.7” Retina HD display on iPhone 6s and the 5.5” Retina HD display on iPhone 6s Plus offer even more pixels for better resolution than ever. A 12MP iSight camera can record high-definition video.

With these latest models, you also get 4K video, which produces rich detail with 8 million pixels per frame. These two phones are, quite simply, two of the best phones ever for viewing and capturing images, both still and moving.

A few other features of video in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus include image stabilization to avoid the shakes when recording, more frames shot per second for smoother video, and Cinematic Video Stabilization, which means that your iPhone continually autofocuses as you’re recording.
