Best iPhone Video Editors in 2020 (iPhone 11 Compatible)

The popularity of video is increasing significantly in recent times and so are the needs for editing and sharing videos easily and quickly. Thankfully, there are lots of great iPhone video editing apps. Some are free; while some are to be paid. Some are easy-to-use, and some are professional but complicated. Of course, it is also necessary to take the compatibility, supported input/output formats, instant support, bonus features, etc. into account when evaluating iPhone video editors. Considering that iPhones are available to various videos, including iPhone or GoPro videos, 4k videos, downloaded videos from Facebook, YouTube, etc., we list 5 great iPhone video editors below.

Five Awesome Video Editing Apps for iPhone

1. Magisto

Magisto is an idiot-proof video editor, which is available for both iOS and Android systems.

It employs Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to partially automate the video editing process so that you can create outstanding videos in just three steps. Then you can share the edited videos through YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc. It is very user-friendly and also makes impressive results. But the auto-editing also means you cannot customize any details once it starts.

The basic features are free. But you need to pay for the Premium or Professional plans for more features, such as longer videos. The native video formats for iOS, such as AVI, MOV, MP4, MPG, MTS, M2TS, etc. are also supported by Magisto. However, it does not support 4k videos.

2. Quik

Quik is an iPhone video editor from GoPro. It requires iOS 10.0 or later and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Just like Magisto, you can easily edit and share your GoPro photos and videos with a few taps. Firstly, add photos or videos, music and text. It allows importing photos and videos from the photo library, Facebook, or Live Photos. Then Quik will syncs everything automatically. It’s also able to trim clips, speed up or slow down footage, etc. Also, you are capable of adding stickers and text. But it supports limited video formats for iOS, namely MP4, H264, and M4V. It doesn’t support 4k videos as well.

3. iMovie

iMovie is a free video editing app developed by Apple. It requires iOS 13.0 or later and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Compared to Magisto, iMovie allows you to trim clips, add filters, arrange clips, record audio, even add green-screen effects, and more. You can import and edit videos from the camera or other sources, and then share on Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, etc. 4K video is supported. However,  there are some common video formats that are not supported by iMovie, such as WMV, AVI, FLV, MKV, VOB, WebM.

4. LumaFusion

LumaFusion is a more powerful video editor than iMovie, but it is charged at $19.99. It requires iOS 11.4 or later and it can be used on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

It is designed with intuitive interface to be friendly to beginners. And it has many professional features, for example, slow motion, chroma key effects. Also, you can export 4k resolution videos and 360-degree videos. Moreover, you are able to find rich tutorials or get instant support from the editing experts to solve your puzzles. But you need to know LumaFusion does not support ProRes, AVI, XAVC and AVCHD files. And it is easy to share videos on different platforms but it cannot sync between devices through iCloud.

5. Adobe Premiere Rush CC

Adobe Premiere Rush CC is a cross-platform video editing app. It is available for iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac systems, as well as all devices, including smartphones, desktops, tablets.

Adobe Premiere Rush CC is with built-in camera so that you can shoot, edit and share videos easily. It has the basic functions as a video editor, such as trimming, splitting video clips, re-sizing, adding titles, transition, etc. You can also adjust the color and speed to get pro-quality videos. Once your editing is complete, you can share video on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc. But it only offers 3 free exports and 2GB of cloud storage. You can pay $9.99 monthly for unlimited exports and 100GB of cloud storage (upgrade up to 10TB).
