InstaVR FAQ: iOS devices limitations for playing 4K videos

Currently there are very few phones which supports 4K resolution videos. In fact, currently none of the iOS devices can display 4K resolution on screen. Neither the newest iPhone 7 nor iPhone 7 Plus supports 4K videos, iPhone SE, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus & iPad Pro supports only 4K recording which means you can only record 4K videos but cannot play it on device.

The cruel fact that the iPhone 7 Plus also only supports screen resolution up to 1920 x 1080 however 4K video requires to be played on at least 3840×2160 (16:9) or 4096×2160 (17:9) resolution screen.

Hence we would prefer if you lower the resolution of your video to 1920 x 1080 to get it played on iOS devices.
Currently our development team is working on a feature that automatically generate valid resolution video as per iOS device. iOS build will work automatically in the future regardless of the video resolution.
