iOS 17.2 beta 2 has introduced a new feature called Spatial Video recording for Apple Vision Pro. This feature utilizes Apple’s first three-dimensional camera, allowing users to capture spatial photographs and videos that can be viewed through a headset. While Apple had previously announced that this feature would be available on the iPhone 15 Pro, it is now being tested in the iOS 17.2 beta 2.
Videos recorded using Spatial Video recording are shot in 1080p resolution and take up approximately 130 megabytes per minute of video. This is about 40% more storage space compared to non-3D 1080p videos. The files are stored in “Apple HEVC Stereo Video” format with the “hvc1” codec. Each video sample contains both left-eye and right-eye views, giving viewers the option to choose which eye is their primary focus.
When comparing Apple Vision Pro to the camera on an iPhone 15 Pro, there are some noticeable differences. The separation between lenses on the Apple Vision Pro closely resembles the gap between human eyes, while an iPhone 15 Pro’s lens center is about half an inch apart.
The team at AppleInsider will be conducting tests on this feature in the coming days to provide further insights. However, an official judgment on its performance will have to wait until the Apple Vision Pro is released in 2024.
