Apple's Clips App Gains New Selfie Scenes, Filters, Stickers and Soundtracks
Apple today announced an update for its Clips app for the iPhone and the iPad, which is adding new Selfie Scenes, additional filters, fresh posters, and new stickers, text labels, and soundtracks.
Clips, for those unfamiliar with the concept, is a video editing app designed to allow users to combine several video clips, images, and photos with voice-based titles, music, filters, and graphics to create enhanced videos that can be shared on social media sites.
Clips was released in early 2017 and has since seen several updates to add new features.
Today's update brings a total of six new Selfie Scenes, which are 360-degree backgrounds that work with devices equipped with a TrueDepth camera system. New Selfie Scenes include a rainforest, a mad scientist's lab, and a scene from "Incredibles 2."
There are three new filters, including aged film, a monochrome watercolor painting, and a black-and-white comic book, along with new posters that have themes like science, sports, and silent movies, plus content from "Coco" and "The Incredibles 2." Posters can be used as title cards for videos.
Apple has also added new stickers and text labels, plus there are 17 new royalty-free soundtracks that can be used in Clips creations.
The newly updated version of Clips is available starting today from the App Store. [Direct Link]
Clips is compatible with the iPhone 5s and later, the iPad Air and later, and the iPad mini 2 and later. Style transfer effects will require the iPhone 7 or 2017 iPad Pro or later, while Selfie Scenes require an iPhone or iPad Pro with TrueDepth Camera.
