New Hero 7 - wifi connection okay - but trying different video capture modes live view didn't show

I just purchased the Hero 7 and got the wifi connection okay - but while trying different capture modes in video the live preview would not work. Is this common? Is this a function of the phone or huge file sizes not being able to display?? I have an iphone 6 plus and two modes did show the live preview but in 4K 60p it did not.

Hello @jeffreyh000. Not all modes are supported in terms of live preview while the camera is recording. More information about this is discussed through the article Live Preview While Recording In The GoPro App
