Apple's Clips App Updated With Chinese New Year Graphics

Apple's Clips video editing app received a small update this afternoon, introducing new artwork ahead of Chinese New Year on February 16.

Today's update brings a new Apple-designed label and poster for Chinese New Year. The poster, which reads "Gung Hay Fat Choy" (the equivalent to Happy New Year in Cantonese) is accompanied by fireworks and can be used as an interstitial scene in a video composition, while the label, which says the same thing, can be used as a sticker.


According to Apple's release notes, the update also improves stability when browsing and recording Selfie Scenes on the iPhone X and it addresses an issue that caused the Top Secret poster to animate incorrectly during playback.

Today's minor Clips update follows a significant overhaul of the app that was introduced in November. That update added "Selfie Scenes," a feature that's designed to use the front-facing TrueDepth camera on the iPhone X to immerse users in 360-degree animated landscapes.

The new poster and label is available on all devices, but Selfie Scenes are limited to the iPhone X. Clips can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

All 3 global clips users appreciate. If they speak Cantonese. Mandarin speakers (Taiwan, mainland china) don’t care.

“Gung Hay Fat Choy” is not “Happy New Year”, it means “Congrats and Gain Fortune”, people normally use this as a New Year‘s greeting.

Yep. Just said the equivalent to Happy New Year because that's how it's used.
