    When I record long time lapse videos on my 6s (4 +hours), they are usually around 25 seconds.

    Is there any way to ensure the phone increases the frame rate from 1 frame every 8 seconds, to 1 frame every 4 seconds or so? i.e. drop the speed from x240 to x120? That should make the video twice as long?

    I got the frame rate details from here.

    You could try a different app, like say time lapse put out by Instagram I believe...speed adjustments can be made. Otherwise I guess you could take your existing footage and edit through iMovie?

    No matter how long you record a time lapse in the camera app, the resulting video will always be around thirty seconds long. You'll need to use a third party app.

    I use app Osnap for time lapse. You can setting the time and the time for every shot. And the app making the video too.

    Yeah, they always seem to be ~30s long. I've imported a 5 hour time-lapse into iMovie and then slowed it down slightly, but you can notice that frames are missing. It doesn't look as smooth as when it was normal speed.

    I'm downloading OSnap now, it looks quite a lot better than the time-lapse built in feature within the camera app. Thanks.

    You can making the video directly
    and change the framerate too. It's very simple to use. I usedit with my 3GS and now with my 5S.

    It seems it can only record in 720p? It would be good if it would give you an approximate size (per 10 mins of recording) based on your current settings, because you can adjust the settings so much, it'd hard to determine the size of the resulting video!

    Yes, I'm aware that you can do time-lapses on older iPhones, but simply posting your own video doesn't add anything to the thread…
