Apple’s just-released iOS 15.1 developer beta 3 features native support for ProRes video capture in the default Camera app. The feature comes a couple of days after Filmic Pro launched ProRes capture support in its popular third-party video app…
Apple ProRes is only available for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. To enable ProRes go to Settings → Camera → Formats and enabled the Apple ProRes switch.
The ProRes feature is a professional video codec that is used in many professional camera systems for filmmaking. This means, regular users might not actually be intrigue with this feature. But for professional filmmakers, it’s a big deal.

So, if you wish to use your iPhone to make professional videos, then you’ll definitely like this new upgrade. But, you’ll have to get either the iPhone 13 Pro or Pro max.
This feature does come with its own downside though. Recording in Prores mode takes up lots of storage space. And this is why Apple only allows the 128GB storage model of the iPhone 13 Pro to record at 1080p max.
For now, the ProRes video recording feature is available in the iOS 15.1 beta update. We still don’t know if Apple will roll it out for public use anytime soon. But, during the Apple Launch event, the company showcased this feature as a selling point for the iPhone 13 Pro.

For that reason, we’re expecting the ProRes video recording feature to make past the beta phase and become available for public use.
We’re not expecting this feature to be available for all Apple iPhones when the iOS 15.1 becomes public. This is because older iPhones does not have the space and tech to use this feature. We’ll see how it goes as more updates comes in.
