Clips for iOS updated with more content for video creation

Clips, Apple’s free app for iOS that lets you create and share videos using an he iPhone or iPad, gets a new update that includes more content for video creation.

The new version of Clips adds six Selfie Scenes, which are 360-degree backgrounds that transport users into different worlds when taking selfie photos and videos. Selfie Scenes use the TrueDepth camera system on the iPhone and the new iPad Pro to allow users to record themselves against immersive, animated backdrops including a rainforest, a mad scientist’s lab, and even an action-packed scene from Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2.

Clips also gets three new filters including a black-and-white comic book, monochrome watercolor painting and aged film. New posters let users create title cards for their videos with themes like science, sports and silent movie, as well as animated posters from Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 and Coco. New stickers and text labels let users add emphasis and fun annotations to videos. And 17 new royalty-free soundtracks feature music to complement new Selfie Scenes, plus vintage-inspired tracks that automatically adjust to match the length of any video.

Clips 2.0.5 is available today as a free update on the App Store and is compatible with the iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini 2 and later models running iOS 11.1 and later. Style transfer effects require an iPhone 7 or 2017 iPad Pro and later. Selfie Scenes require iPhone or iPad Pro with TrueDepth camera.
