Why the Apple Vision Pro's spatial video is a game changer

Apple has announced that spatial video capture is now available for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max as part of the iOS 17.2 update. This feature allows users to record 3D videos in full HD resolution and 30 frames per second. The videos are recorded using both the main and ultrawide camera simultaneously and saved as a single file. However, to fully experience the spatial videos, users will need to use the Apple Vision Pro headset.

Users can view their spatial videos on the iPhone, but they will be in a flat format. To see them in an immersive view, they can use the Vision Pro headset. The spatial videos can be played back in a window or expanded to transport users back to each moment, such as a celebration or special gathering. The Vision Pro is capable of capturing spatial videos on its own, but using an iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max is recommended to avoid looking awkward while recording.

The introduction of spatial video capture on the iPhone and the compatibility with the Vision Pro headset opens up new possibilities for capturing and reliving important moments in a more immersive way. It is expected that the Vision Pro, along with its spatial video capabilities, will be a game changer in terms of user experience.
