Are you looking to merge two videos on your iPhone? Whether you want to create a seamless compilation of your vacation footage or combine multiple clips for a social media post, merging videos can be a useful skill to have. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of merging two videos on your iPhone, step by step.

Step 1: Install a Video Editing App

To merge videos on your iPhone, you will need a video editing app. There are several great options available on the App Store, but for the purpose of this tutorial, we will be using the “iMovie” app. If you don’t already have it installed on your device, head over to the App Store and download it.

Step 2: Launch iMovie

Once you have installed iMovie, locate and tap on its icon to launch the app. You will be greeted with the Projects screen.

Step 3: Create a New Project

To start merging your videos, tap on the “Create Project” button. From the options presented, select “Movie”.

Step 4: Import Videos

In the next screen, tap on the “+” button to import videos from your Camera Roll or iCloud Drive. Select the first video that you want to merge and tap “Import Selected”. Repeat this process for each additional video that you want to include in your merged video.

Step 5: Arrange Videos

Once all your videos are imported, they will appear as separate clips in the timeline at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold on a clip to drag and rearrange their order according to how you want them to appear in your merged video.

Step 6: Trim and Split Clips (Optional)

If you want to trim or split any of the clips, tap on the clip to select it, then tap on the scissors icon. You can use the yellow handles to adjust the start and end points of a clip or split it into multiple sections.

Step 7: Add Transitions (Optional)

To make your merged video flow smoothly, you can add transitions between clips. Tap on the transition icon located between two clips in the timeline. Select a transition style from the options provided.

Step 8: Apply Effects and Filters (Optional)

If you want to enhance your merged video further, iMovie offers various effects and filters. Tap on a clip to select it, then tap on the “Effects” button.

Choose from options like “Dramatic”, “Vintage”, or “Black & White”. Experiment with different effects until you find one that suits your taste.

Step 9: Add Titles (Optional)

If you want to add titles or captions to your merged video, tap on the clip where you want to add a title, then tap on the “T” icon. Enter your desired text and customize its font, color, size, and position using the options provided.

Step 10: Preview and Export

Once you are satisfied with your merged video, tap on the play icon in the preview window to preview it. If everything looks good, tap on the share/export button located at the top-right corner of the screen.


  • If prompted, give iMovie permission to access your videos and photos.
  • Choose an export quality that best suits your needs. Higher quality options will result in larger file sizes.

Finally, tap on “Save Video” to export your merged video. You can choose to save it to your Camera Roll, iCloud Drive, or share it directly on social media platforms or messaging apps.

Congratulations! You have successfully merged two videos on your iPhone using iMovie. Now you can unleash your creativity and share your amazing creations with the world!
