APPLE fans who are picking up the new iPhone this week might want to reconsider, as a great feature isn’t all it seems.
The iPhone 14 Pro should pack all the bells and whistles.
But the cheapest of the line – which costs £1099 – is actually missing a key option.
It turns out that the 128GB version of the iPhone 14 Pro can’t shoot the very best videos like the other Pro and Pro Max models.
That’s because this particular iPhone 14 Pro doesn’t support 4K ProRes video recording.
According to Apple, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max support ProRes video recording in the camera app at 1080p 30fps with the 128GB storage option and up to 4K 30fps with 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options.
This means that anyone who wants to record the highest possible quality videos on the iPhone 14 Pro 128GB cannot.
So if superior video quality is a must for you, consider the 256GB version instead.
For most people, however, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
4K ProRes is Apple’s own special technology standard – known as a video codec – used primarily in professional video productions.

It’s not clear why Apple doesn’t allow the 128GB iPhone 14 Pro to record 4K ProRes.
but Mac rumours Notes, it is probably due to the massive amount of storage space such videos take up.
A one-minute 10-bit ProRes video takes up about 1.7 GB in 1080p, while it eats up 6 GB in 4K.
With all your apps and stuff, 128GB doesn’t leave much room for huge 4K videos.
