Owning an iPhone 6s means having a full-service multimedia studio at your fingertips. Yet, technology advances so fast that your iPhone 6s might not have the editing features you need.

While the built-in editing tools work, they aren’t going to help you make your video stand out. That’s why Kapwing built a full suite of cutting edge tools you can access on the web, free! That means no app downloads and no pay walls. Just everything you need to create something special. Here’s how it works:

  1. Upload your video
  2. Edit the footage
  3. Make it stand out
  4. Publish and download


1. Upload your video

First, open the Kapwing Studio and tap ‘Click to upload’ or copy/paste the video URL in the bottom box.

If you recorded the video on your iPhone 6s, open the ‘Photo Library’ and select it from your feed. If you want to edit an existing video (i.e. Twitch, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter videos), paste the video URL for a quicker workflow.

2. Edit the footage

Now, tap ‘Edit video’ right above your video.

Kapwing provides every tool for basic editing tasks like trim, adjust, crop, rotate and layer. Below, I’ll showcase the simplicity of the trim, adjust and crop tool. Watch one at a time.

In short, you can edit your video by adjusting or sliding the handles when you enter the screen for each tool. Pretty easy, right?

3. Make it stand out

Now, it’s time to grab your audience’s attention. Look at the toolbar at the top of the studio and slide right to explore extra features like text, images, audio, subtitles, timeline, scenes and shapes.

For this tutorial, I’ll show you how to add text and images. To start, tap ‘Text’ at the top, tap on the box and type your message. Then, tap ‘Edit text’ right above your video to change the font, color, outline, background, line height or animation. Last, tap the box to move it around or adjust the corners to resize.

To add an image, tap ‘Images’ at the top and select whether you want to upload an image, search for one, pull one from an existing Kapwing project or add an emoji. Once you decide, add the image, tap to move it around or adjust the corners to resize to your preference. Sound familiar?

4. Publish and download

When you’re done, tap ‘Publish’ at the top of your screen and wait for Kapwing’s kittens to process the final product!

Next, you’ll land on the download page. If you haven’t made a free Kapwing account, tap ‘Sign in to remove the watermark’ to fix that problem (wink, wink).

Finally, tap ‘Download’, tap ‘Download’ on the iOS prompt and tap the arrow in the top right of your screen. Now, select your video, tap the icon in the bottom left, scroll and choose the ‘Save Video’ option.

Finally, check your Photos app and there should be a newly edited video waiting for you!
