If you’re an iPhone user and want to turn a video into slow motion, you’re in luck! With the built-in features of iOS, you can easily achieve this effect without the need for any third-party apps. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps to transform your videos into slow motion using your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Camera app

To start, unlock your iPhone and locate the Camera app on your home screen. Tap on it to open the camera.

Step 2: Switch to Slo-Mo mode

Once you have opened the Camera app, swipe left or right on the screen until you reach Slo-Mo mode. This mode is specifically designed to capture videos in slow motion.

Step 3: Set up your shot

Before recording, make sure you have framed your shot properly. Take into consideration factors such as lighting, composition, and subject movement for the best results.

Step 4: Record your video

When everything is set up, simply tap on the red record button at the bottom center of the screen to start recording. Ensure that you maintain a steady hand while recording to avoid any shakiness in your slow-motion video.

Step 5: Adjust slo-mo settings (optional)

If you want more control over how slow or fast your video is played back, you can adjust the slo-mo settings. After recording a slow-motion video, tap on “Edit” at the bottom right corner of the screen when previewing it.

  • Bold Text: Tap on “Edit” at the bottom right corner of the screen when previewing it.
  • Bold Text: In the editing interface, you’ll see a timeline at the bottom of the screen with two yellow brackets.

    These brackets represent the section of your video that will be played back in slow motion.

  • Bold Text: To adjust the speed, drag either of the yellow brackets towards the center or edges of the timeline. Moving them closer to each other will slow down that section, while moving them apart will speed it up.

Step 6: Save and share your slow-motion video

Once you are satisfied with your slow-motion video, tap on “Done” at the bottom right corner of the screen. It will save your edited video in your Photos app.

If you want to share it directly from there, tap on the “Share” button and choose your desired platform such as Messages, Mail, or social media apps like Instagram or Facebook.


With just a few simple steps, you can easily turn any video into a captivating slow-motion masterpiece using your iPhone. Whether you want to emphasize certain moments or add a dramatic effect to your footage, the Slo-Mo mode on iPhone offers a convenient solution without requiring any additional software. So go ahead and experiment with this feature to unleash your creativity!
