iPhones are considered  to  have some of the best cameras to make videos. Even the latest apple iphone 13 range boasts of features like overhauled cameras and a cinematic video recording mode. While the video quality can be super impressive from an iPhone, the saved movies also take up a lot of storage space. These large video files cannot be attached  to  emails because they come with a size limit pertaining to attachments. Apple has not yet introduced a default method  to  compress videos on iPhones.

The best practice is  to  report videos that need  to  be compressed in poor than in other available settings like 4K or 1080 pixels. But if you’ve already documented videos and need  to  make them smaller, it’s pretty easy with the right  tools. Here’s everything you need  to  know.

How to compress video clips on your iPhone

There is no arrears way  to  compress video clips on the iPhone. Users will certainly need  to  rely on third party apps  to  compress big videos. We have mentioned one particular reliable app that we examined, and shown the process listed below, but there are several video data compresion apps that can be found on the App Store.

Alternatively, you can simply record at lower quality  to  save space —  to  do so, simply change record quality, head  to  Settings > Camera > Record video . But  to  change the size of an existing video, the actual simple steps below  to  compress video on an iPhone using the Video Compress app.  

  1. Once installed, tap on the giant ‘+’ sign on the homepage.

  2. The application will ask for relevant permissions, like to access photos application. Press OK. Video Compress will then show you a list of all of the videos available in your Camera Roll.

  3. Click on the video you wish to compress by tapping onto it. Users can select several videos to compress at once.

  4. The app will now present the user options on the degree of compression they want for the video clip. Presets that are available in the Movie Compress app include full-HD quality which compresses in order to 28. 6MB per minute as well as the lowest is 360p which usually compresses to 3. 6MB per minute. Select the option that you simply prefer.

  5. Video Compress will likely then ask the user to select a Destination Album. If the offered choices do not work, users can select ‘Add New Album’ at the bottom.

  6. Once the destination can be selected, the video compression process begins. This process takes about 30 seconds or so.

  7. At the end, the app asks users to choose if they want to keep the original video or remove it. The new compressed video will show up in the Destination Album and in the Digital camera Roll as well.
