1. Ensure Your iPhone Is Running iOS 13 Or Later

The Photos app is one of the best photo and video editing apps for iPhone.

And it’s built right into your phone – so you don’t need to download a third-party editing app.

But the video editing tools are only available if your iPhone is running iOS 13 or later. (iOS is the iPhone operating system).

If you have iPhone 11 or iPhone 12, you’ll already have the new video editing tools in the Photos app.

If you have an older iPhone (iPhone 6s or newer) running iOS 12 or earlier, you can update to the latest iOS for free.

If you have the iPhone 6 or earlier, unfortunately, you won’t be able to access the video editing tools (because you can’t update to iOS 13 or later).

To update your iPhone to the latest iOS, open the Settings app from the Home screen. Then go to General > Software Update.

If your software is up to date with iOS 13 or later, you don’t need to do anything else. You’ll already have access to the iPhone video editing tools.

If your software isn’t up to date, follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the latest iOS. Before doing this, make sure the data on your iPhone is backed up – just in case something goes wrong!

2. Duplicate Your Video To Preserve The Original

When you edit a video, the original video is overwritten with the edited version.

However, edits that you make in the Photos app are non-destructive. So you can revert back to the original video at any time.

But what if you want to keep the original video in your photo library, along with a separate edited version?

In such cases, you can duplicate the video before editing. That way, you’ll have two copies of the video on your iPhone – one of which can be edited.

To duplicate a video, open it in the Photos app, then tap the Share icon (square with arrow) at the bottom left.

The duplicate video will be at the bottom of your photo library.

You can now edit this duplicate video, safe in the knowledge that the original version won’t be altered.

Note that the video editing tools support all video formats captured on iPhone. So you can edit videos, time-lapse videos, and slo-mo videos.

3. Open The Video Editor In The Photos App

So, how do you access the video editing tools in the Photos app?

Simply open the video you want to edit, then tap Edit at the top right.

When you apply an adjustment to a video, all frames in the video will be affected. In other words, the effect is applied to the entire video.

Read on to learn how each of the adjustment tools will affect your video footage.

6.1 Auto Adjust

The Auto tool automatically adjusts the colors and brightness of your video.

When you tap the Auto button, the icon turns pale grey to indicate that it’s switched on.

You can use the slider at the bottom of the screen to adjust the strength of the automatic edit.

If you wish, you can fine-tune the Auto adjustment using individual adjustment tools. Just tap an adjustment tool and use the slider to adjust its strength.

To remove the Auto adjustment from your video, tap the Auto icon so it turns dark grey.

6.3 Highlights

The Highlights tool adjusts the brightness of the bright areas in your video.

6.5 Contrast

The Contrast tool adjusts the contrast between the bright and dark tones in your video.

Increasing contrast makes the shadows darker and the highlights brighter. Reducing contrast makes the shadows brighter and the highlights darker.

In general, lowering the contrast doesn’t look good. Increasing the contrast a little bit can make the video look sharper.

6.6 Brightness

The Brightness tool brightens or darkens the video (but in a slightly different way from the Exposure tool).

The Brightness tool has a slightly heavier bias towards the shadows and midtones. So the dark and medium tones are affected more than the bright tones.

6.7 Black Point

The Black Point tool affects the brightness of only the darkest tones in your video.

If your video lacks deep blacks, drag the slider to the right to make the darkest areas appear black. Dragging to the left can make the colors in your video look faded.

6.8 Saturation

The Saturation tool makes the colors in your video more or less vibrant.

Be careful not to over-saturate the colors as they’ll look unnatural if they’re too vibrant.

6.9 Vibrance

The Vibrance tool boosts muted colors to make them richer without affecting skin tones and saturated colors.

The Vibrance tool often results in more natural-looking colors than the Saturation tool. This is because it doesn’t over-saturate skin tones or colors that are already vibrant.

Even at the maximum Vibrance settings of 100 and -100, the skin tones still look natural.

6.10 Warmth

The Warmth tool makes the colors warmer (more orange) or cooler (more blue).

6.14 Noise Reduction

The Noise Reduction tool reduces or eliminates “noise” – such as grain caused by shooting in low light.

Drag the slider to the right to reduce noise in your video. But be careful not to apply too much noise reduction as it can soften the detail too much.

6.15 Vignette

The Vignette tool brightens or darkens the edges of your video. This can help draw attention to the center of the frame.

7. Crop, Straighten & Adjust Perspective

Tap the Crop tool at the bottom of the video editor screen.

This gives you access to a range of options for cropping, straightening, and adjusting perspective.

7.1 Crop

Do you want to crop away the edges of your video?

Simply drag the crop handles at the corners of the frame.

If you crop in too far, pinch inwards with two fingers to bring back the cropped areas. You can also drag the video preview to adjust which area appears within the crop frame.

When cropping, keep in mind that the entire video will be cropped – not just the frame that you see in the preview.

After cropping, drag the timeline bar at the bottom of the video to check that the entire video looks good when cropped.

The entire video will be rotated when you use the Straighten tool. So always check that the whole video looks good when straightened.

7.3 Perspective

Sometimes you might want to correct the vertical or horizontal perspective in your video.

For example, if you shot the video from a low angle, tall subjects (such as buildings) may appear to converge towards the top. But you could correct or reduce this with the Vertical Perspective tool.

8. Set The Slow-Motion Section Of A Slo-Mo Video

Have you shot a Slo-Mo video in the iPhone Camera app? If so, the start and end of the video will play at normal speed, while the main section in the middle appears in slow-motion.

But did you know you can adjust when the slow-motion part starts and ends?

In the Photos app video editor, ensure the Video icon is selected at the bottom of the screen.

Beneath the frame viewer, you’ll see a row of white vertical bars.

Where the bars are close together, the video plays at normal speed. Where the bars are further apart, the video plays in slow-motion.

To set which section plays in slow motion, drag the two tall white bars to the left or right.
