If you zoom in they are grainy pictures.
Tim Cook shared them on Twitter. Social media sites always compress photos to save disk space on their servers, some more than others. They were probably re-compressed by the site that reported on the Tweets (MacRumors), and who knows, probably everythingiCafe tried to do some compression on top of that as well when I posted them here.

The original photos on the owner’s phone are of better quality, though I’m not saying that there isn’t some degree of graininess even on the originals.

I have this problem all the time with video from my GoPro...

Never and I mean never use YouTube.. They compress the living crud out of video. I pay for a Vimeo account and it's a little better but they still compress it as well..

I've seen some pretty nice 1080p and 4K videos on YouTube.

It sounds like one of these things is happening when you upload/play your videos:
1. You're not using the correct upload settings when uploading the video file.
2. You're not selecting the HD version of the video to play on YouTube.
3. The video file wasn't properly encoded prior to upload.

1. Is a-ok. It's not my uploads that are the problem
2. Always select HD if it does not auto choose it
3. Nope not the problem for me at least. I edit and encode video all the time

I have not used YouTube in a few years so maybe they've gotten better. Video takes up a LOT of space and YouTube is free so there has to be a balance. I've paid for Vimeo for the past 3 or 4 years and while it's better than YouTube, they still compress video as well..

But you are correct, video look okay on YouTube but it could be better f they didn't compress it so heavily..

This is a beautiful video shot with the iPhone 7 Plus camera by Austin Mann of the eastern gorillas in the rain forest in southwest Rwanda

Mindi and I watched that earlier tonight. I thought I posted the link here, but I guess I didn't. Really good stuff, though.

Be sure to look at the photo comparisons and time-lapse videos farther on down the page, too.
