Hi! Thanks for reading. This post looks better in our award-winning app, Tips & Tricks for iPhone.


Apple launched a pretty impressive free video editor a couple of years back called Clips, with the intention of making it easier for the average person to quickly knock up fun videos to share with their friends. Though it’s not taken off quite as much as Apple probably hoped, its a surprisingly powerful app that can create stunning scenes and effects in seconds.

The app is completely free and certainly worth your time if you haven’t given it a whirl before – especially as Apple has just updated Clips with a whole bunch of new stuff.

“The new version of Clips adds six Selfie Scenes, which are 360-degree backgrounds that transport users into different worlds when taking selfie photos and videos. Selfie Scenes use the TrueDepth camera system on iPhone and the new iPad Pro to allow users to record themselves against immersive, animated backdrops including a beautiful rainforest, a mad scientist’s lab and even an action-packed scene from Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2.”

There are also a host of new filters that can transform you into comic books or watercolors, plus a bunch of new title cards, stickers, and soundtrack clips. It all adds up to a compelling download!
