Apple today updated its Clips app for the iPhone and the iPad to introduce new posters, new title and caption options, updated stickers, a camcorder filter, and more.

Still no support for vertical video? Wow. You guys are on top of current trends, Apple. Spot on

Until vertical video support is added, this app is dead to me ☠️
