Clear, high definition video is all about a frame rate of 60 frames per second (fps).

Luckily, your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus can shoot in this high-speed format that will smooth out your videos as well as make the results of your slo-motion editing a much more watchable experience.

If you want to set your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus up to shoot 60 fps video, here’s how to do it.

Camera settingsLaunch the Settings app on your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus and swipe down to the Photos & Camera section. Tap there, and then swipe down past the Slideshow section to Camera.

You’ll see toggle switches for the Grid, which helps you with the rule of thirds when shooting still photos or video, and Record Video at 60 FPS. Toggle this latter one to ON, and now you’ll see the “60 FPS” indicator when you shoot video with your iPhone.

Be sure to keep an eye on your onboard storage, as the higher-definition video will take up much more space on your iPhone than the standard 30 fps video your iPhone defaults to.

Enjoy capturing your adventures with the crisp, clear, and smooth visual stylings of 60 fps, right on your iPhone. Here are the results when a professional videographer gets a hold of this technology.
