How to crop video on iPhone and iPad using Photos
1… Open “Photo“.
2… In the tab “Albums“Go to the folder”Video“Or find the video in another way convenient for you.
3… Open the video and in the upper right corner click the “Edit“.
4… At the bottom of the display, click on the camera icon, a storyboard will appear, and in the left and right corners there are arrows that you can drag to shorten or increase the length of the footage. When you start working with them, the ribbon will turn yellow. If necessary, you can reproduce the resulting section.
five… Click the “Done»And select an action “Save video as new” or “Save video“. Be careful with the second point, because incorrectly cropping the video can lose valuable frames. It is much better to save “as new” and delete the original separately. This will keep it in the basket for 30 days.
