How to Play 4K Resolution Videos on iPhone (6S)/iPad (Air 2)?

4K resolution, also known as 4K, is one of the new trendy tags coming into people's sight in recent years. It's a newly-emerging resolution standard for Ultra HD, which provides with the ultimate visual experience. With no doubt, it is a stunning experience to enjoy the visual feast of 4K video with Retina HD display of iPad/iPhone! But is it possible?

Since 4K resolution means 3840×2160 (16:9) or 4096x2160 (17:9) and 4K video takes way much space in addition to the high requirement on resolution. It would take much time to download a 4K video from YouTube or other video websites and not be able to be played smoothly on iPhone (6S)/iPad (Air 2) and we have image stabilization to concern. Furthermore, with those microscopic pixels you wouldn't be able to tell 4K apart from 1080p screen due to the pixel density. Therefore, in most cases, we need to downscale most of the 4K stuff to 1080p for watching on iPad/iPhone. (read 4K vs 1080p)
