Clips is a mobile video editing software application created by Apple Inc. It was released onto the iOS App Store on April 6, 2017,[1][2] for free.[3] Initially, it was only available on 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3 or later;[4] as of version 3.1.3, it requires iOS 16.0 or later. Apple describes it as an app for "making and sharing fun videos with text, effects, graphics, and more.".[5]


After launching of the app, the user sees the view of the front-facing camera.[6] The app allows the user to create a new clip by tapping on a red record button,[7] or use photos or videos from the device's photo library.[8] Once a clip is recorded, it can be added to a project timeline shown at the bottom of the screen.[9] The user can share their project on social media platforms.[2][8] The user can also add filters and effects to the project.[7][10] "Live Titles" (available in several styles[11]) can also be created by dictating to the device.[11][12]
