How to add videos to your iPhone

IPhones are considered to have some of the best cameras for making videos. Even the latest iPhone 13 boasts features such as improved cameras and cinema video recording mode. While the video quality is better than the iPhone, saved videos also take up a lot of storage space. These large video files come with attachment limits and cannot be associated with emails. Apple has not yet introduced a default method for compressing videos on iPhones.

The best practice is to record videos that need to be compressed at a lower resolution than other modes such as 4K or 1080p. But if you pre-record videos and want to make them smaller, it’s much easier with the right tools. Everything you need to know is here.

How to compress videos on your iPhone

There is no default way to compress videos on iPhone. Users must rely on third-party apps to compress large videos. We’ve mentioned one such safe app that we’ve tried and shown below, but there are several video compression apps available in the App Store.

Alternatively, to save space you can easily register in low quality – to do this simply change the record quality, go to Settings> Camera> Video Recording. But to change the size of an existing video, follow the simple steps below to compress a video on your iPhone using the video compression app.

  1. Once installed, tap on the huge ‘+’ sign on the homepage.

  2. The application requires the appropriate permissions to access the Photos app. Click OK. Video Compressor then shows you a list of all the videos in your camera package.

  3. Tap it and click on the video you want to upload. Users can select multiple videos to compress at once.

  4. The app now displays user options at the compression level you want for the video. The presets in the video compression app add up to 28.6 MB per minute and the minimum 360p, which includes full-HD resolution up to 3.6 MB per minute. Choose the option you want.

  5. Video compressor then asks the user to select the destination album. If the options provided do not work, users can select “Add New Album” below.

  6. Once the destination is selected, the video compression process will begin. This process takes about 30 seconds.

  7. Finally, the app asks users to choose if they want to save or delete the original video. The new compressed video will also appear in the destination album and camera package.
