— How to Edit Video on iPhone & iPad: iMovie Tutorial for iOS —

Editing apps on iPhone and iPad have REALLY come a long way, and you can now get some great results right on your phone or tablet device.

We’ve tested a TON of apps, ranging from the simplest template-based apps that automatically generate videos from your footage, to full-blown editing solutions with timeline and multi-track support… After trying out so many options, we released a video running through the two apps we’d recommend to anyone looking to edit on iOS (check it out here:

One of those recommendations was iMovie for iOS. It’s an awesome app for creating great content right on your iPhone or iPad – and in this video we run you through an iMovie tutorial, showing exactly how to use it!

This is not a full featured review and will not cover how to use every tool or feature in the iMovie app. We’ll be running through a full edit end-to-end, covering everything you need to know to get you editing fast, and with great results, using your iOS device.

NOTE: We’ll be following the Primal Video Method, the most efficient editing process to eliminate any rework or wasted time. We did a video on this a while back (here: If you haven’t seen it yet, you can also download the PDF guide to help you with your videos:

Hi Justin!! How are you? Great video!!! I got a question. I have a question. MY 1080 hd videos that I record with any camera doesn’t play at full HD on my Mac desktop( it’s a new one) or and on my mac air laptop. It degrades a lot. 4K works fine. The same footage plays perfectly on my Iphone and Ipad and 10 year old Dell.  Do you know what the problem is?  Thank you so much    Jose

Terry Davis says:

Hi Justin I like your videos but when trying to follow your iMovie tutorial for IOS , your screen shots are different to mine and therefore I cannot follow your procedure. I have an iPhone 6S plus and the latest version of iMovie.
Any suggestions please

Thanks Justin. Great video. When I upload to YouTube it picks a random spot in the video as the cover page. How do I set that to the frame that I want to display?
