How to Reduce/Remove Noise from iPhone Footage

Prior to getting rid of iPhone video background noise, you're required to free download VideoProc Converter AI at your desktop first. Choose the product version based on your operating system. It's well compatible with Windows 11/10/8/7, as well as macOS Sonoma/Ventura/Monterey/Big Sur or earlier. Afterwards, install and launch it on your computer.

Step 1. Import iPhone Videos. Click Video on the main interface > tap "+" (add video file to list) icon button to load the iPhone footages to the software.


1. This utility is a desktop-based tool so that you're demanded to transfer videos from iPhone to Mac or Windows first using Photos app or some third party apps.

2. As the below picture shows, there are more features available: DVD, Downloader and Recorder. To be specific, it can also be applied into ripping and backing up your DVD to MP4 or other digital formats, free downloading videos from YouTube (1000+ sites supported) and recording Mac/iPhone screen video with sound.

Step 2. Choose Denoise. Move your mouse to the bottom of the interface > find "Toolbox" and tap it > click "Denoise" option and tap the settings icon in the upper right corner to make the Denoise adjustment window pop up.

Step 3. Adjust Settings. Keep the default settings if you're not familiar with noise reduction settings. As for the video editing experts, you're allowed to freely tweak the High Pass and Low Pass, as well as cut your iPhone footage length for part video clip noise reduction. Afterwards, tap Done button.

Note: The features in Toolbox can be used 1 at each time and they can't be used with other editing features (Effect, Watermark, Cut, Crop, Rotate, Subtitle) at the same time. If you need to edit iPhone videos with more functions, do it after the previous is done.

Step 4. Choose Video Format. Tap "Video" or "Target Format" to enter into the output profile window, where you can select the output video format you need, including MP4, MOV, H264, HEVC, MKV, AVI, FLV, WMV, WebM, as well as iPhone Xs Max/Xs/XR, iPad Pro, Galaxy S9 edge, Huawei, Sony, Microsoft, etc.

Note: shift your attention to the lower right corner of the home screen and you'll find the Hardware Acceleration Engine (Nvidia/Intel/AMD) is auto ticked as long as your computer supports at least one of the GPU HW acceleration techs, be it Nvidia NVENC/NVDEC, Intel Quick Sync Video or AMD APP. Thus, your compute-intensive iPhone video noise removal task can be accomplished at GPU accelerated speed, up to 5X faster than ever and break away from the CPU overheating, CPU overuse and desktop laggy problem.
