The iPhone is considered to have some of the best cameras for making videos. Even the latest iPhone 13 series has features such as overhauled cameras and movie video recording modes. Although the iPhone’s video quality can be impressive, the saved videos can also take up a lot of storage space. These large video files cannot be attached to emails because they have attachment size restrictions. Apple has not introduced a default method of compressing videos on the iPhone.

The best practice is to record videos that need to be compressed at a lower quality than other available modes, such as 4K or 1080p. However, if you have already recorded videos and need to reduce them, it is easy to use the right tools. This is everything you need to know.

How to compress videos on iPhone

There is no default way to compress videos on the iPhone. Users will need to rely on third-party applications to compress large videos. We have already mentioned a reliable application that we tested and showed the process below, but several video compression applications can be found on the App Store.

Or, you can simply record at a lower quality to save space-for this, just change the recording quality and go to Settings> Camera> Record Video. But to change the size of an existing video, follow the simple steps below to compress the video on the iPhone using the Video Compress app.

  1. After installation, click on the huge “+” sign on the homepage.

  2. The app will ask for permissions, such as access to the photo app. Press OK. Then, video compression will show you a list of all available videos in the camera roll.

  3. Click the video you want to compress. Users can select multiple videos for compression at once.

  4. The app will now display user options for the level of video compression they want. The presets available in the Video Compress application include Full HD quality, which compresses to 28.6MB per minute, and the lowest is 360p, which compresses to 3.6MB per minute. Choose the option you like.

  5. Video Compress will then ask the user to select the target album. If the options provided do not work, the user can select “Add new album” at the bottom.

  6. Once the destination is selected, the video compression process begins. This process takes about 30 seconds.

  7. Finally, the app will ask the user to choose whether to keep the original video or delete it. The new compressed video will be displayed in the target album and camera roll.
