Apple’s new ‘cinematic mode’ is one of the big new features on the iPhone 13 range, but it has an annoying drawback that could limit its usefulness.
As highlighted in a tweet by YouTuber Erfon Elijah, the iPhone 13’s cinematic mode only works in 1080p resolution, and at 30fps to boot. There’s no option for 4K, or the 24fps frame rate, both of which the iPhone 13’s camera can handle in other modes.
The official iPhone 13 tech specs and iPhone 13 Pro tech specs pages call this out as well, so it’s not as if Apple is hiding this info. But this limitation is still a bummer.
