Choosing a plan to watch high-resolution video? Of course, the question immediately arises: what should be the connection speed for watching 4K video? The answer is an Apple tech support document.
The text says, among other things:
“Apple recommends minimum speed for 4K streaming [Интернет-соединения] at 25 Mbps. “
And one more thing:
“When you buy or rent a movie or TV show from the iTunes Store, your device may display a warning that it cannot play 1080p (HD) or 4K video content. In this case, your device will automatically start playing the most suitable version of this video for it. “
Of course, this is not the best news – many users not only have access to a truly high-speed and stable Internet, not only in Russia but also in the world. In this regard, the option of downloading 4K content would be very useful. But here, it seems, nothing can be done about it.
By the way, the HD version of the video, as well as the HDR and Dolby Vision options, can still be downloaded to iPhone, iPad, Mac or Windows-PC.
