How much Storage Space does a 4k Video recorded on iPhone 6S take?



Question: The new iPhones from Apple come with the 4K Video recording & I plan to buy one of these. Because of a limited budget, iPhone 6S with the 16 GB Storage would be my preferred choice but I’m confused about the total space required while recording videos. Can you elaborate on the same. ~Keevil

Answer: Both the recently launched Apple Smartphone’s ie the iPhone 6S & iPhone 6S Plus feature 4K Video recording which you can configure through the phone options. We have been testing these new phones & have found that the 4K videos are recorded under 30 fps while the 1080 P videos are now available to be recorded at 60 fps which generally require more storage space.

First you need to decide the Video Quality under the Settings to know which option would be good for your current requirement & then proceed to recording the video. Under our Apple iPhone 6S Tips, we had mentioned that the 16 GB variant of the iPhone 6S comes with 10.5 GB of user available space which you could use to store all your data. This is pretty less but that’s what you get on the device.

Officially Apple has clearly mentioned the actual storage space needed on your iPhone while recording videos in different modes. You can have a quick look on that below.

1 Minute of Video will be approximately:

  • 60MB with 720p HD at 30 fps (space saver)
  • 130MB with 1080p Full HD at 30 fps (default)
  • 200MB with 1080p Full HD at 60 fps (Smoother)
  • 375MB with 4K (Highest Resolution)

As you had clearly mentioned that you are looking for the 4K video feature on the phone, you shouldn’t opt for the 16GB variant because it comes with just 10.5 GB of available user storage space. This is very less considering that with just 28 minutes of video recording the phone storage would get full. Its recommended to upgrade the storage option to a minimum of 64GB where you get 52.3GB of user available space which is good enough for people who record many videos.

Alternatively you can make use of the Apple iCloud feature to backup all the media files to the cloud which can be enabled through settings. If you have switched from Android then you can certainly take a look at the Google Photos application which offers you with unlimited storage if you select the optimized quality option.

Let us know if you have any other queries about the storage needed to record a video from these premium Smartphones from Apple.
