iPhone video compression

Posted at — Oct 5, 2013

When you send a video clip from your iPhone the iPhone application compress the video before sending. So the question is why doesn’t the phone compress the video in the background or if some more opportune time. Waiting until the video is being transmitted does two things. It takes too long to initiate transmit. And the storage required for the original media. It’s quite possible that Apple is now in the storage business and not the phone business.
