I've just recorded my first video on my 13 Pro Max at 4k 30fps using ProRes and it seems to be taking ages to import from my phone. At first, it didn't work at all even when it comes to single photos. It has now imported the photos but the video import process looks like it is hanging for some reason. Is there anything special you need to do to import videos files?
Manage ProRes filesProRes files are up to 30 times larger than HEVC files. If you store the files on your device, you might run out of space more quickly than you expect. And if you use iCloud Photos to store your photos, you might need to upgrade your iCloud storage plan to make more space available for these larger files. iCloud also has limits on file size.
iOS helps you optimize your storage when recording in ProRes. To extend ProRes recording time when data storage is low, you can free resources while using the Camera app. The Camera app will also free resources automatically when ProRes is enabled and less than five minutes of recording time is available.
Freeing resources will clear temporary system or app data that might be stored on your iPhone. It doesn't permanently delete unrecoverable data, but might require some apps to refresh data when they're used again. To record in ProRes, you need at least 10 percent of the storage in your iPhone to be free.
Thank you. I didn't realise that. I rerecorded the video in 1080p 30fps without ProRes so that should be a much more manageable file size to work with.Where are you importing them to? Keep in mind ProRes is a big file format. I would only use it if you are planning to make use of the extra data in post processing.

This is all a massive experiment on my part as it'll be my first ever YouTube video once I've edited it and done a thumbnail and things. It'll take a while to learn how to do everything that is required.
I held off as best I could on the 13PM but eventually caved in March when I got a refurb for £824. I was determined to hold out until the 14PM however my itchy trigger finger combined with larger screen & ProMotion (which were the only 2 things I really cared about) won out in the end. Plus the closer the 14PM gets the less of an upgrade it seems to be over the 13PM.I am itching to get a refurb 128G 13 Pro for about £650...keep that for 18 months and trade it in for the 15 when everything is USB-C. Signs are iPhone 14 isn't going to be that big a leap from the 13 and my XR feels a little stuttery of late.
Where have you seen one for that price?

They have but I’m not holding my breath this time around given the rate that prices for everything else are increasing. At best it’ll be a price freeze. I just think with the 14 Max in the mix this time they will use that to justify a higher price for the Pro Max.They're always difficult to get at release unless you're there as pre-orders start on day one.
Haven't prices actually dropped the last couple of years?
I’m not denying they weren’t however all I’m saying is there’s potential for it this time round with the current global supply chain fiasco. Just look at the lead times for their MacBook Pro’s and iPad Airs - 2 months and 1 month respectively. Admittedly that’s direct from Apple but if I was paying full retail I’d be purchasing direct from them.They really have not been that hard to get hold of for the last few launches. The lead time was only a couple of weeks from Apple at the most and usually available to walk in and buy from 3rd party sellers/networks.
