How to Trim Videos on an iPhone

Many modern iPhone models have the ability to edit videos as well as record high-quality footage. After you have recorded the video using the camera, you will see a box in the lower-left corner of your screen. When you select this box, you will be taken to the photos application.

The photos application will allow you to edit videos. Here’s how:

  1. From the photos app, you can tap a video to edit it.
  1. After you tap the video and open it, click the edit button, and you will see a timeline bar at the bottom of the screen that will show every frame of the video you have taken.
  1. You can go along frames of the video with the white bar and drag it to the area where you would like to make changes.
  1. In order to properly trim your video, tap and hold the start or the end of the timeline bar and pull the end of the timeline bar to the section of the video that you would like to cut to. This will eliminate the start or end of the video so that you can very quickly start to edit/ trim to the part of the clip you want.
  1. As soon as you start to drag the end bar, it will turn yellow and it will begin to cut out parts of the video. The section of the video that is then shown in yellow at the bottom of the bar will be the items that are cut out when you trim your clip. When you are happy with your changes, you can go ahead and hit done. If you don't want to delete all of the yellow sections that you have highlighted, you can click cancel.
  1. After selecting done and then save a new clip, you will have a newly edited version of your iPhone video.

That’s how to edit videos on the iPhone. Do you ever edit videos like this on your iPhone?
