Fancy yourself a bit of a digital wizard and want to create mind-bending time-warping videos to blow your mates away? Whether you're a social media maestro or just looking for a fun way to pass the time, reversing videos on iphone is a lot easier than you might think. This quick guide will have you creating reversed clips like a pro in no time.

Reversing a video requires more processing power from your phone than regular playback, so it's best to use a short clip or one that doesn't require much movement or audio. You may also need to reduce your playback speed slightly to keep the video from pixelating.

To reverse a video on your iPhone, first open the app of your choice and tap "Video" or "All." Select the video you'd like to edit and then look for the option to flip the footage. You'll probably find this under "Edit" or a separate "Reverse" tab. Once you're happy with your work, export it to your camera roll or share it directly on your favorite platform.

iMovie doesn't have a built-in option to reverse videos, but there are several third-party apps that make it easy. One of the most user-friendly is Reverse Vid, which offers a straightforward process with plenty of editing options. More comprehensive apps like InShot offer reversing alongside a treasure trove of other tools, including trimming and filtering. They're usually free to use, with a premium tier available for ad-free editing and higher-resolution exports.
