How to Speed Up iPhone Video

Are you tired of watching slow-motion videos on your iPhone? Do you wish you could speed them up to save time and make them more enjoyable?

Well, you’re in luck! In this tutorial, we will show you how to speed up your iPhone videos with just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

First, locate and open the Photos app on your iPhone. It usually comes pre-installed and has a white icon with a colorful flower on it.

Step 2: Select the Video

In the Photos app, navigate to the “Albums” tab at the bottom of the screen. Then, choose the album that contains the video you want to speed up. Once inside the album, find and tap on the video to select it.

Step 3: Tap Edit

With the video selected, tap on the “Edit” button in the top-right corner of your screen. This will open up a new set of editing options for your video.

Step 4: Adjust Speed

In the editing options, locate and tap on the “Speed” button. It is represented by a small stopwatch icon. This will allow you to change the playback speed of your video.

Note: The default speed is usually set at 1x or normal speed.

A) Increase Speed

  • To increase the speed of your video, drag the slider towards “Fast”. You can choose from various speeds such as 2x or even higher depending on your preference.
  • TIP: If you are unsure which speed to select, you can experiment with different speeds and play the video to see the effect. This way, you can find the perfect speed for your video.
  • Once you are satisfied with the new speed, tap on “Done” in the bottom-right corner of your screen to save the changes.

B) Decrease Speed

  • If you want to slow down your video, drag the slider towards “Slow”. Similar to increasing the speed, you have various options for slowing down your video.
  • PRO TIP: Slowing down videos can be useful for analyzing specific movements or capturing moments in detail.
  • After adjusting the speed to your liking, tap on “Done” to save the changes and apply them to your video.

Step 5: Save Your Video

Finally, after making all the necessary adjustments to your video’s speed, tap on “Done” in the bottom-right corner of your screen. The Photos app will save a new version of your video with the updated speed. You can find this new version in your album alongside the original video.

Note: The original video will remain unchanged, so don’t worry about losing any data or quality during this process.

Congratulations! You have successfully sped up or slowed down a video on your iPhone. Now you can enjoy watching videos at a pace that suits your needs and preferences.


In this tutorial, we learned how to speed up or slow down iPhone videos using the built-in editing features of the Photos app. By following these simple steps, you can easily adjust the playback speed of any video on your iPhone.
