The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Are Capable of Playing Back 4K Video

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are reportedly capable of playing back 4K video thanks to the new A8 chip, reports TUAW.

The discovery was made by the developers of WALTR, a Mac app that lets users upload unsupported video file types to the iPhone.

While testing the app developers found it is possible to playback 4K videos on the iPhone 6. Even if Apple hasn't announced it, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are ready to play 4K videos.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have resolutions of 1334x750 and 1920x1080 so they obviously can't play the video at 3840x2160; however, it's nice to have the ability to playback 4K if need be.

The company has posted a video to YouTube with proof which you can view below.

Now does the iPhone 6 Plus play the 100mbps video better than the 6, and can these phones output to a 4K TV at that resolution or will it downgrade it to 1080p?

Now does speed still matter after getting a groundbreaking increase compared to the 5s? Is it even necessary to output when you can AirPlay to any TV?
