Apple Clips allows users to create and edit short video clips quickly. The app offers various features, such as adding filters, text, stickers, and animated emoji to videos and the ability to include music and sound effects. It also provides simple tools for trimming and rearranging clips to create engaging and fun videos.
One of the standout features of Apple Clips is the “Live Titles” feature, which allows users to create animated captions and titles just by speaking while recording. The app uses voice recognition technology to generate text in sync with the user’s speech, making it easy to create captions without typing them manually.
