IPhone 13 smartphones are already on sale, but one of the new features is not initially available. We are talking about video recording in ProRes format for older models. And while Apple has not yet activated this feature in the camera app, it has already done so in its Filmic Pro app.

Filmic Pro 6.17 released yesterday includes full ProRes support. There are four video recording setup options available: ProRes Proxy (170 Mbps), ProRes LT (360 Mbps), ProRes 422 (540 Mbps), and ProRes 422 HQ (735 Mbps), with all versions being 10- bit and use 4: 2: 2 chroma downsampling and internal coding.

When ProRes is not compatible with Cinematographer Kit and Film Looks features, and is limited to 30fps in 4K and 60fps in Full HD.

Of course, the first reviews of the new function have already appeared on the web. You can see one of them below.

The reviewer says that around 45-60 minutes of video in ProRes HQ ended up taking over 600GB of storage on his iPhone. Recall that Apple limited support for the new format not only to Pro models, but also to versions with 256 GB of flash memory or more. It is now clear why.

When it comes to comparing video in ProRes and normal video with h.265 HEVC format, there is a huge difference, and for ordinary users, the latter option may seem much preferable due to post-processing. Still, ProRes is a professional format that requires post-processing. At the same time, in ProRes, the detail is definitely higher, albeit with a fair approximation.

As mentioned several times, the main difference between this device and the Series 6 is the enlarged display. Disassembling iFixit revealed that the watch uses an OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen (on-cell touch), this technology debuted in the iPhone 13.

According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.

IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.

When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”

The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
