YouTube channel Everything Apple Pro and Max Weinbach are back again with some tantalizing details about the iPhone 12 Pro. According to their latest information, the iPhone 12 Pro could ship with two new 4K camera modes that may change how you record slow-mo video.
The two new video modes would add support for shooting 4K video at 120fps and 240fps. Current iPhone 11 Pro models also have 4K video recording but are limited to 24 fps, 30 fps, or 60 fps. These new modes would be available only on the higher-end iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Weinbach’s sources claim Apple is testing these new modes ahead of the phone’s expected release date this fall.
Apple is likely adding these modes now because of the A14 processor. The A14 is expected to be as fast as the powerhouse A13x in the current iPad Pro.
Leaked Geekbench benchmarks allegedly show the chip was clocked at 3.1Ghz with six cores. A variation of this chip may also serve as the backbone for the company’s upcoming ARM-based Mac lineup, slated to debut sometime at the end of the year.
These new camera modes are only some of the camera upgrades that may land in the iPhone 12 this fall. Rumors suggest the iPhone 12 Pro models may include a triple-lens design and a 3D camera similar to the LiDAR scanner that Apple added to the 2020 iPad Pro models.
Some models may even rock a recycled design with a flat-edged metal frame reminiscent of the iPhone 4. The company may be planning to release up to four different versions, including an entry-level 5.4-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and a whopping 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
