Step 1: Choose the Right App

There are several video editing apps available on the App Store. Some popular choices include iMovie, Adobe Premiere Rush, and Splice. These apps offer a wide range of features and user-friendly interfaces, making them ideal for beginners.

  2. Tap on the “Audio” or “Music” option in your app’s toolbar.
  3. Browse through your iPhone’s music library or choose from preloaded sound effects.

Step 6: Export and Share Your Video

Once you are satisfied with your edits, it’s time to export and share your video with the world! Most video editing apps offer various options for exporting your final project.

To export and share your video:
