Apple Clips is launching a new update that will bring support for vertical video, can be easily shared with social media platforms, and has a refreshed interface and other changes. Recording videos in multiple aspect ratios will make it easier to create content for Instagram Stories, Snapchat and other social media platforms that use vertical videos. Clips 3.0 also supports recording HDR video from the rear cameras of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
The tech giant says this is the biggest update to Clips to date. Apple said that it includes demanding features in the update, which will make it easy for anyone to use iPhone or iPad to make multi-segment videos without too much editing experience. Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of applied product marketing, said in a statement that the new Clips update will help users create more personalized and beautiful edited videos.
Users can record and create videos on Clips 3.0 in 9:16 vertical, 16:9 horizontal, 3:4 vertical and 4:3 horizontal sizes. They can easily add content to the video using the redesigned effects and media browser, and Apple Pencil can be used to scribble freely on the text of labels and posters. In the latest update, Apple has added eight new tags that can be added to social media videos, six arrows and shapes, and 25 new audio tracks, which will automatically adjust to match the length of the video.
Apple Clips will support vertical and horizontal video, and automatically open to a new 16:9 vertical project-this will make it easier to record videos for social media platforms. Filters, posters, real-time titles and selfie scenes have also been updated on the app to record in new sizes. There is an updated sharing table that allows users to view video previews before sending. The video can be shared in any supported size through the new export option.
After recording with HDR, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro users can add more HDR photos and videos from their photo library. The final video will be shared by Clips as a Dolby Vision HDR file.
The redesigned iPad interface of Clips 3.0 is designed to make it easier for young creators, students and teachers to make great videos. Users can use the iPad display screen by recording and editing horizontally. Apple’s video creation application also supports the new Scribble feature in iPadOS 14. iPad can be paired with Magic Keyboard or Bluetooth mouse or trackpad to optimize the editing experience.
Clips 3.0 is released as an update on the App Store and is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 or later.
