Joseph Keller, writing at iMore:
Something to keep in mind about quick video: it doesn’t record
in 4K. No matter what resolution you’ve set for taking video on
your iPhone, whether above or below 4K, quick videos on the
iPhone 11 series of phones will always record at a resolution of
1920 × 1440.
“HD” video is usually 1920 × 1080, but Quick Video shoots 1920 × 1440 because it always records with a 4:3 aspect ratio. That’s not what I expected, but you don’t lose anything — the 1920 × 1080 image recorded by default in the “Video” mode is a 16:9 center crop of the 4:3 sensor. If you want a 16:9 aspect ratio from a clip shot using Quick Video, you can just crop it in post, right in the Camera or Photos app using the new video editing tools in iOS 13. (And not only can you crop to 16:9 in post, you can decide to raise or lower the centerline on the video when you do so.)
