The iPhone 6's A8 chip can play 4K video

While testing the app developers found it is possible to playback 4K videos on the iPhone 6.

Apple has never disappointed its fans and with every new release, the fruit company hasn’t failed to surprise us and the iPhone 6 is no exception at all. The device, already have become popular prior to its release, is a completely magical device and each of its features has been a treat for our eyes. Apple has offered some amazing treats in the form of the iPhone 6 including its ability to shoot a 4k video as long as you are working with the right kind of app. You must be thinking that isn’t as useful considering that you cant really watch 4k videos on the iPhone 6 and that’s not entirely true.

Thanks to the A8 chip, he iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus both can play the 4k video format and that too right out if the box. We owe our thanks for this discovery to the developers of WALTR, which is a great Mac app that allows users to quickly upload video files to their iPhone which aren't supported by iTunes, such as FLAC and MKV files. During the developers were busy testing the app, they accidentally stumbled across the possibility to playback 4K videos on the iPhone 6 and Apple hasn’t so far made any announcement regarding it but we are sure that both the versions of the iPhone 6 are ready to play 4k videos.

Apple has plans to move further ahead on its high definition future and its recent launch of the Retina 5K iMac is enough proof of that. We are still waiting to see if Apple is going to unlock the ability to view 4K footage on the device for users in the future.
