How to Speed up a Video on iPhone

There are actually a lot of video editing apps that can speed up or slow down your videos.

In this article, I will show you the best apps to do so.

1. iMovie

iMovie is my all-time favorite video editing app on my iOS devices. The app is provided by Apple, no ads, no watermark, and full of powerful features for editing videos on the go.

2x speed-up is available on iPhone 5s, iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display, and later devices. [If you want to speed up more than 2x, then check out the second app].

You can download iMovie for free here.

The following steps show you how to change a video speed on your iPhone or iPad using this great app.

1- Open the iMovie app.

2- Tap “Creat Project”. Then select “Movie”.

3- Now find and select the video you want to speed up. Once you’ve selected your video, tap “Create Movie” in the bottom.

4- Tap the timeline of the video, then select the speed adjustment tool at the bottom of the screen.

5- Now you can adjust the speed up to 2x or slow down to 1/8x by dragging the speed handle to the right or left. Tap “Reset” if you want to go back to the original speed.

6- You can tap on the play button to preview the edited video with the new speed. Once you’re satisfied with the result, tap “Done” in the top-left corner to save the project.

7- To save the new video, simply select the Share button. Then click “Save Video”. The app will prompt you to choose an export size. After that, your video will be exported to the Photos app.

The iMovie app is very easy to use. It only takes you like a few clicks to speed up a video. No app watermark is included, which you can rarely find in any free video editing app out there.

However, you can only change the video play speed up to 2x using this app. What if you want to speed up even more? Let’s move on to the next app.

2. VideoShop

Videoshop is another free video editing app for iOS. You can download it here.

1- When you open this app for the first time, you will be prompted to either record a new video or edit your existing ones. Just click “Import clip”.

2- Select the video you wish to change the play speed, then tap Done in the top right corner of the screen to import it.

3- Below the video, you will find various editing tools, slide to the right to find the Speed tool, then select it.

5- Once you’re content with the speed, tap on the green tick button to save the change.

6. Tap the Save button in the top right corner of the screen, then select “Save to Camera Roll”.

As you can see, changing video speed on iPhone is very simple. You don’t need a bloated software on your computer to do it. Which app do you like the most? Let me know in the comments below.
