“The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have resolutions of 1335×750 and 1920×1080 respectively, but both Apple devices are still capable of 4K video playback,” Amit Chowdhry reports for Forbes.
“The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will not be able to display the same level of detail expected from 4K videos (3840×2160 resolution) since the native displays on the devices are lower, but the ability to playback 4K is still impressive,” Chowdhry reports. “The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are able to playback 4K video because of the powerful Apple A8 64-bit system on a chip (SoC) built into the devices. The A8 has 25% more CPU performance and 50% more graphics performance than its predecessor, known as the A7.”
“Softorino, a company that developed Mac software for uploading music and video files to iOS devices called WALTR, told TUAW that they discovered the 4K video playback capabilities in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus while testing their app,” Chowdhry reports. “The WALTR Mac app lets users upload files to iOS devices that are not supported by iTunes like MKV, AVI, WMA and FLAC files.”
