How to Add Filter to Video on iPhone and iPad in iOS 13

A little tweak in a video can immensely change the end result. By far, iOS didn’t have a feature to edit videos like a pro. And it was never easier to edit videos without any video editing apps. But now, with iOS 13, the Photos app has taken a different curve all along. It has the most stunning features once you move on to editing photos and videos.

To be very honest, I loved the Photos app of all other features introduced in iOS 13. The reason being is to apply the desired filter to a video on your iPhone and to turn a live photo into video as well! That wasn’t possible in iOS 12; of course, it was possible to apply filters to photos but not videos.

So are you excited to see how you can apply a filter to video in iOS 13? Let’s get started!
