Are you looking to learn how to cut videos on your iPhone? You’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of cutting videos directly on your iPhone. Whether you want to trim a video clip or remove unwanted sections, we’ve got you covered.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To get started, open the Photos app on your iPhone. This app allows you to access all the videos stored in your camera roll.

Step 2: Select the Video

Once you have opened the Photos app, browse through your camera roll and select the video that you want to edit. Tap on it to open it in full screen.

Step 3: Tap Edit

At the bottom of the screen, you will see various options. Tap on “Edit” to enter the editing mode for the selected video.

Step 4: Trim the Video

In editing mode, you will see a timeline at the bottom of the screen with handles on both ends. To trim your video, move these handles inward or outward to define the desired start and end points of your trimmed clip.

Note: You can use pinch gestures to zoom in or out of the timeline for more precise trimming.

Trimming Tips:

  • Snap-to-grid: When moving handles, they may snap to specific points on the timeline, making it easier to trim precisely.
  • Frame-by-frame precision: For fine adjustments, use two fingers and swipe left or right on either handle. This allows you to move frame by frame for precise trimming.

Step 5: Preview and Save

After you have trimmed the video to your satisfaction, tap on the “Play” button to preview your edited clip. If you are happy with the result, tap on “Done” to save your changes.

Voila! You have successfully cut a video on your iPhone using the built-in Photos app. Now you can share your edited video with friends or upload it to social media platforms.

Remember, practice makes perfect. So don’t hesitate to experiment with different trimming techniques and explore other editing options available in the Photos app.
