Apple’s Clips app updated with new posters, retro Camcorder filter, live titles and more

“Apple today updated its Clips app for the iPhone and the iPad to introduce new posters, new title and caption options, updated stickers, a camcorder filter, and more,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors.

“Apple has added a new camcorder filter that’s designed to introduce a retro video camera look for your videos, and there are eight new poster background options with colorful vintage designs, a camcorder recording screen, and an animated globe in honor of earth day,” Clover reports. “You can create titles and captions using three newly introduced Live Titles styles, and there are new 8-bit and 3D stickers you can add to your videos.”

“Apple first released clips in early 2017 and has since updated it multiple times,” Clover reports. “Clips is compatible with the iPhone 5s and later, the original iPad Air and later, and the iPad mini 2 and later.”

MacDailyNews Take: Seriously, do you know anybody who uses Clips? From elementary school kids, to middle and high school students, to adults, we asked around and don’t find many people who even know what it is, much less use it.


  1. It can be a lot of fun for quick little videos, but it just needs a few things like when performing a ken burns effect it mimics exactly how you are pinching or zooming out, if there was a way to auto smooth the transition that would be really nice.

  2. I use it probably once/twice a month. It has some really cool features but the interface navigation is sorta clunky. More control over the text-over features is needed. I get that it geared to social media content production but i would really like to have the option to choose widescreen instead of the mandatory square format–Insta now allows for standard format–why not give the option? I like that they added access to GB sound files.
