As was the case with iPhone 13 Pro models released last year, 4K ProRes video recording on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max still requires a model with at least 256GB of storage, according to Apple’s tech specs for the devices.
ProRes video recording is limited to 1080p at 30 frames per second on iPhone 14 Pro models with a 128GB storage capacity. To record ProRes video in 4K at 30 frames per second, a model with a 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB storage capacity is required.
A footnote on Apple’s press release announcing the iPhone 14 Pro models:
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max support ProRes video recording in the Camera app at 1080p 30 fps with the 128GB storage option, and up to 4K 30 fps with 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options.
The lack of 4K ProRes video recording support on 128GB models is likely due to the 4K videos having very large file sizes. Apple says a one-minute 10-bit ProRes video is approximately 1.7GB in 1080p and approximately 6GB in 4K.
Introduced on iPhone 13 Pro models, ProRes refers to a family of codecs from Apple that can compress videos into smaller file sizes with “impressive image quality preservation.” Apple says ProRes is designed as a final delivery format for high-quality videos like commercials, feature films, and broadcasts.
ProRes video recording is still not supported at all on the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

Apple Pay Later may not arrive until next year due to 'technical and engineering' setbacks – Yahoo Movies Canada
Apple Pay Later may not arrive until next spring, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. As you may recall, Apple announced the buy now, pay later feature at WWDC 2022 and said, at the time, that it would arrive alongside iOS 16. Well, the latest version of the company’s mobile operating is here and Apple Pay Later is nowhere to be found.
A footnote on Apple’s website states the feature will arrive “in a future update.” As Gurman notes, other previously announced iOS 16 features that aren’t available yet are listed as coming “later this year.” Gurman believes the discrepancy is due to the fact Apple doesn’t know when Pay Later will be ready, and the feature may not arrive until iOS 16.4 ships in 2023. “I’m hearing there have been fairly significant technical and engineering challenges in rolling out the service, leading to delays,” he notes.
It’s interesting to learn Apple is encountering technical challenges implementing a Pay Later service. Based on Gurman’s previous reporting, the company has been working on such a feature for more than a year. It even went out of its way to create a subsidiary called Apple Financing to conduct credit checks and customer approvals. All those moves suggest the company sees financial services as a significant part of its future.
YouTuber Tests Apple Watch Ultra Durability With a Hammer: Table Breaks Before the Watch – MacRumors
A YouTuber has put Apple’s claims for the durability of the Apple Watch Ultra to the test by putting it up against a drop test, a jar of nails, and repeated hits with a hammer to test the sapphire crystal protecting the display.
TechRax, a channel popular for testing the durability of products, first tested the Apple Watch Ultra by dropping it from around four feet high. The Apple Watch Ultra was left mostly unscuffed, aside from some minor dents along the titanium casing. Next, the Apple Watch Ultra was mixed around in a jar of nails and was once again left with no visible marks.
TechRax also tested the durability of the Apple Watch Ultra’s sapphire crystal display cover by repeatedly hitting it with a hammer. In the test, the watch withstood repeated hits with the hammer until it finally cracked, and only after the table took some damage first.
While the Apple Watch Ultra’s display did not initially take damage, the watch did fail to turn on after repeated hits. The failure to power on could indicate that while the sapphire may not have broken at first, some internal components may have suffered damage. Of course, the test is unrealistic in portraying a typical use case of the Apple Watch Ultra, but it may provide some customers reassurance about the strength of the sapphire crystal display cover.
Apple claims the Apple Watch Ultra is its most rugged, durable, and extreme Apple Watch yet, appearing to be aimed to compete directly with Garmin. In response to the Apple Watch Ultra, Garmin said it measures battery life in “months” and not “hours.” The Apple Watch Ultra is priced at $799 and began arriving to customers on Friday.
The new Apple Watch Ultra ships with a braided Apple Watch to USB-C charger, according to Apple’s product page, the “What’s in the box” section, and Apple Store retail documentation seen by MacRumors. The Apple Watch Ultra is the first Apple Watch to ship with the uniquely braided cable.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled the new Apple Watch Ultra, a larger, more advanced smartwatch aimed at athletes, explorers, and swimmers. The Apple Watch Ultra shares the same features as the new Apple Watch Series 8, but there is a whole lot more to the watch than meets the eye. Here are just some of the more notable differences that are worth highlighting.
Operating Temperatures Are Extreme
Apple has listed two new apps on the App Store that are made exclusively for the Apple Watch Ultra: “Siren” and “Depth.” Siren is designed for emergency situations if users become lost or injured to draw attention to their location. When the Action button on Apple Watch Ultra is long-pressed, Siren emits a unique 86-decibel sound pattern which can be heard up to 600 feet (180 meters) away.
Apple Watch Ultra repairs cost $499 without an AppleCare+ plan in the United States, according to Apple’s website. This fee applies to an Apple Watch Ultra with damage to the titanium case, display, buttons, sensors, or other components.
Apple can also replace the battery in an Apple Watch Ultra for a $99 fee, regardless of whether the customer has AppleCare+ coverage.
Apple today released watchOS 9.0.1, a minor update to the watchOS 9 operating system that debuted in September. watchOS 9.0.1 is available for the Apple Watch Ultra, and it will be a day one update for those who are receiving an Apple Watch Ultra tomorrow.
Apple Watch Ultra owners can download the update by opening up the Apple Watch app on the iPhone and going to General > Software Update….

Apple plans to release new MacBook Pro models in the fourth quarter of 2022, according to supply chain publication DigiTimes.

There has been uncertainty surrounding the timing of new 14-inch and…
Apple may decide to release its remaining products for 2022, which include updated iPad Pro, Mac mini, and 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, through press releases on its website rather than a digital event, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. In his latest Power On newsletter, Gurman said that Apple is currently “likely to release its remaining 2022 products via press releases,…

There's a hidden folder in Google Photos you likely don't know about – MobileSyrup
If you use Google Photos to back up and store your pictures, you’ll be pleased — or maybe annoyed — to know there’s a hidden page full of AI photo edits.
I was looking for confirmation regarding how Google Photos stacks bracketed images into HDR files and stumbled on this link that takes you to the ‘Google Photos – Unsaved Creations page.’
This page lists all the Google Photos custom AI-generated edits the app has created over the years. You can delete the images permanently from this area if there’s anything you don’t want, but it’s strange Google hides it from the standard Google Photos interface.
Google has been using AI to make animations and collages out of photos since the app launched, and then in 2018, it added more powerful AI-auto-editing features like HDR bracketing, Colour Pop and more. Some people love these features, and others don’t use them, but it’s interesting to go through the full list of Google-generated images and videos and see how good, or bad the edits to your photos are. And yea, even the embarrassing ones are entertaining.
It’s quite interesting to go through the list since there are a lot of fun collages that I never really paid attention to and amusing comparison shots of my face over the years. Beyond that, there are also a few cool edits I’ve pulled out as well, so I think it’s worth it for everyone to browse their unsaved photos at least once.
