In practice, the iPads I tested with were incapable of handling video encoding of anything larger than 1080p. I have not tested with the iPad Air 2 and I don't know if/when I will be able to. I currently have no plans of acquiring one. If you have an iPad Air 2 and are willing to test potentially several iterations of TimeLapse test versions, perhaps we can work together to see if it works.

However, I don't have control over how iOS performs the encoding or the various resource limits (especially graphics resources) that are in force on a particular device. My experience has been that iPads generally could not reliably handle the encoding because of graphics resource limits. If you want a test version of TimeLapse with 4K enabled on iPads, I can provide you a test build.
