Can’t figure out how to enable 4K 60FPS and 1080P 240FPS on your iPhone 8? Here’s the fix!

Want to use your iPhone 8's new video formats but can't figure out how to switch them over? Here's how!

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have some excellent new camera features including (for the first time) being able to shoot 60 frames per second (FPS) in 4K and a whopping 240FPS in 1080P for ultra-slow-motion video. But these two formats can take up a lot of space on your iPhone — 400MB for 4K at 60FPS (versus 170MB for 30FPS), and 480MB for a 240FPS shot (vs 170MB for 120FPS). As such, they're not enabled by default.

Before you can shoot at these frame rates and sizes, you'll need to change your video format from the older (and bigger) H.264 format to the newer (and more efficient) HEVC codec.

How to switch your video format to shoot in 4K/60FPS and 1080P/240FPS

Note: The HEVC codec is not currently supported by all devices or in all apps, and requires High Sierra to convert properly on a Mac. You can AirDrop a movie to convert it from HEVC to H.264, but just be aware.

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Select the Camera section.
  3. Go to Formats.

  4. Choose High Efficiency.
  5. Change your Record Video option to 4K at 60 fps.
  6. Change your Record Slo-mo option to 1080P at 240 fps.

Instant Note A New Feature In iOS 11 For The iPad Pro

The Instant Note app is just what it says, a feature which allows the user to instantly make notes without opening the Lock screen to jot down notes on the iPad.

The new feature Instant Note in iOS 11 is designed to let the user open a new document in Notes by tapping the iPad Pro display with the Apple Pencil, all this is done even when the iPad is locked. This feature allows the user to instantly open a new note from the Lock screen while everything else is still locked down until the user enters the passcode or uses Touch ID.

Instant Notes is only compatible with the iPad Pro and can only be accessed with an Apple Pencil, there are two more new enhancements that can be used with the Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro: 1. Users can do inline drawing, which allows the user the ability to start anywhere in the middle of a text if desired. 2. Instant Markup which should be noted is not really “instant” but it is a system-wide way to turn the screen into a PDF (which isn’t a full-featured PDF clipper) in which the user can apply any type of markup notes desired on the screen.

To enable Instant Note on the iPad Pro using iOS 11, launch the Settings app on your iPad Pro > tap Notes > tap Access Notes from Lock Screen and select the way you would like to open Instant Notes – A. Always create new Note, B. Resume last Note created on the Lock screen. C. Resume last Note viewed in Notes App.
