It's easy to speed up a video on your iPhone or bring back a Slo-Mo video to normal speed. To speed up a video on your iPhone, it's best to use iMovie or the Photos app. You can speed up video with iMovie using the Speed ​​button in the video editing toolbar. You can speed up slow motion videos in the Photos app by dragging the vertical bars together in the Edit menu.


You can speed up a video on an iPhone in two different ways, depending on the type of file you are working with. If you've recorded a video using iPhone's Slo-Mo feature, it's easy to speed it up in the Photos app. You want to make an iPhone video where time seems to run faster, but if your video is at normal speed, the best way to speed it up is to upload it to iMovie.
