Editing video length on iPhone is a great way to make sure your videos look professional and have the perfect length for sharing. With the right tools, it’s easy to trim a video to the exact length you need.

The easiest way to edit video length on iPhone is with the native Photos app. To start, open the Photos app and select your video. Tap the Edit button in the top-right corner of the screen, then drag either end of the frame viewer below your video to change its start and stop times. When you’re done adjusting, tap Done at the bottom of your screen.

To save only the trimmed version of your video, tap Save Video. You can also tap Save Video as New Clip if you want to save both versions of your video.

If you want more control over how you trim your videos, consider using an app like iMovie or Splice by GoPro. These apps have more advanced editing options like stabilizing shaky footage, adding music and sound effects, and exporting still images from your videos.

In iMovie, open a project containing the footage you want to edit and select it in the timeline view at the bottom of your screen. Next, drag either end of the blue bar that appears above your footage until it contains only what you want in your final clip. To save it as a new clip in Photos or send it directly to social media platforms like YouTube or Vimeo, tap Share at the top-right corner of your screen and select an option from there.

For Splice users, just select one or more clips in its timeline viewer then press Trim at the bottom-left corner of your screen to set their start and end times precisely. When you’re done editing each clip individually, press Done at the top-left corner before saving or sharing them online.

Editing video length on iPhone is a simple process that can help make sure all your videos look their best before sharing them with friends or family online!
