Unable to download 4K video into my iPhone 6S plus

I can't transfer video files from my GoPro hero 5 black to my iPhone 6S using Capture, I've tried with 4K 30fps, 2.7k 60fps and 30fps and 1080p 120fps, 60fps. But it isn't possible to transfer these files.

 

my old 3+ black I hadn't this problem, anyone can tell me why this isn't possible??

Re: Unable to download 4K video into my iPhone 6S plus

@michelroelfsema - I understand that some of those higher resolutions and fps rates are not playable on iPhones. That could be the issue here.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

The higher frame rates have never been avalible for download from app to phone. Only 30fps and lower can be downloaded straight to the phone.

Re: Unable to download 4K video into my iPhone 6S plus

I could download a file onto my iPhone with my GoPro Hero 3+ Black, ii filmed in 2.7K 30fps, 1080p 60fps and 720p 120fps. I could generatie a video with Capture so i could download it onto my iPhone and make a movie with Quick.

 

With the Hero 5 this isn't possible anymore, only on lower frame rates and no higher than 1080p.

Re: Unable to download 4K video into my iPhone 6S plus

The iPhone 6/6S allows users to shoot a whole 4K video (and prior to it, Samsung Note 3, Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 all have supported 4K video recording). But few smartphones can support 4K resolution video playing. In fact, iPhone can't support 4K video playback, for me, i like to compress 4k to HD video for iPhone.

iPhone 5s cannot transfer video 4k from Gopro hero 4 silver?
