Apple’s Clips app just received some exciting upgrades, to try and convince more users to use the free app. Clips helps you create, edit, and share quick videos on your iPhone, but the features were getting old and users paid little attention to the app.
Clips 3.0 now has a refreshed interface, with a redesigned record screen that floats on top of the viewer when shooting vertically or horizontally. That’s right, the app also lets you record full-screen vertically and horizontally, instead of just the outdated square recording, which remains optionally available.
The new update also comes with a collection of new stickers, arrows and shapes, and new soundtracks that automatically adjust to match the length of videos.
The newly updated app comes pre-installed on the iPhone 12, allowing users to record in HDR with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. Clips will then export the final video automatically as a Dolby Vision HDR file.
Clips for iPad is also getting a new interface featuring large Effects browsers and an easy-to-reach record button. The new Scribble feature in iPadOS 14 is also supported by the app, converting handwritten text with Apple Pencil into typed text in labels and posters.
The latest update for Clips is available now on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 or later.
