4K quality AR

Create 4K quality AR content on iOS

In the past, 1920 * 1080 was the best camera image quality that could be captured by ARKit.
However, there are cases where you want to capture with higher image quality.

4K image quality can now be used

From iOS 16 in 2022, 4K image quality can be used with ARKit.

How to use

Make sure that recommendedVideoFormatFor4KResolution is supported (it do not return nil) and specify it in videoFormat.
It can be used on iPhone 11 or later and M1 iPad.

I don’t know if it makes a difference, but I’ll post a screenshot.

1920 * 1080

3840 * 2160

In 4K mode, the frame rate will be 30fps. (60fps for HD)
This is convenient when you want to capture an image using the ARKit sensor.
