Apple Clips latest update brings new interface, landscape videos and more
Apple Clips has received its biggest update yet with an improved iPad experience, HDR support for the new iPhone 12 series.
Apple has rolled out a new update for its video creation app, Clips. Apple Clips has a redesigned interface, and it also supports HDR recording on iPhone 12. The new Apple Clips 3.0 update is available on the App Store for iPhones and iPads.
Apple says this is the biggest update for Clips so far, and it has added some highly requested features. Clips on iPhone has a streamlined interface now with support for full-screen browsers. The record screen now floats on top of the viewer when shooting vertically or horizontally. Editing tools are more accessible now with swipe gestures for stickers and text labels. Apple has also added eight new stickers, six arrows and shapes, and 25 new soundtracks.
The new update also brings support for landscape orientation for Apple Clips on iPad. It has also received support for scribble with Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard or smart keyboard, and Bluetooth mouse or trackpad. Apple Clips on iPad also opens up to the 4:3 landscape mode for full-screen videos. On iPhone, it opens up to the 16:9 vertical mode.
Apple Clips users can now make videos in multiple aspect ratios in both horizontal and vertical formats optimised for content on Instagram Stories, Snapchat and YouTube. Apple has also updated the filters, posters, Live Titles and Selfie Scenes to adjust to the new sizes on Clips.
Apple Clips on iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro now supports HDR video captures shot with the rear cameras. The latest update lets Clips users shoot HDR footage directly from the app, and also add HDR content from the library. The final video can also be shared as a Dolby Vision HDR file.
