Apple has announced a new Clips app update that it is touting as the biggest app update yet. It is the Cips 3.0 version that comes with different new features including one of the commonly requested features. The app now supports verticle orientation for recording videos which will especially be beneficial for iPhone users.
The Apple Clips now also supports different aspect ratios which users were requesting for so long. It lets users choose from 16:9, 4:3, and square aspect ratios. This will help users in shooting videos as per the platform they would be interested in sharing. The support for both aspect ratios and video orientation is available for iPhone as well as iPads.
The user interface of the app has also been refined. The new UI makes it easier and convenient for users to browse through numerous effects, filters, stickers, and emojis. There are also new assets for users to choose from so that they can express themselves in a better way. These include more royalty-free songs, more speech bubble shapes, and more stickers.
And yes, the app will now shoot in Dolby Vision HDR when used on iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models' rear camera. The output video will also be shared in the Dolby Vision HDR format. The update further brings optimizations with Magic Keyboard and Smart Keyboard along with Bluetooth mouse and trackpad for iPad users. It also supports the Scribble feature available for Apple Pencil users. Clips 3.0 update has already started the rollout and should become available for everyone soon enough.
