Apple updates its Clips video app with new Selfie Scenes feature, iCloud support and more

Earlier this year, Apple released an app called Clips that lets you create expressive videos by combining video clips, photos and music. The app has just picked an major update that brings new features like Selfie Scenes for iPhone X, iCloud support, artistic style transfer effects and new stickers. 

Apple has also resigned the app's interface, making it more easy-to-use, with a new streamlined design that puts frequently used controls on the front. There's a new Effects browser that lets users view and choose filters, labels, stickers and emojis, while the Labeled button will make it easier to edit Live Tiles, add or change filters, trim, mute and delete clips. It also gets refreshed full screen browser, which now lets users see more of their content when viewing their photo library or selecting animated posters.

Speaking of the new features, the iPhone X exclusive Selfie Scenes function places the users into animated 360-degree scenes when recording selfies. And by harnessing iPhone X's TrueDepth front camera, users can choose from a variety of Apple-designed  scenes such as bustling cities, serene landscapes, abstract paintings, as well as two scenes from Star Wars: The Last Jedi like Millennium Falcon and Mega-Destroyer to record selfies.

Each scene will offer full 360-degree experience that surrounds the users on all sides as they move iPhone X. It will also add environmental sound effects to make the scenes more immersive.

Next up, Clips is getting new artistic effects and stickers, which uses advanced machine leaning and style transfer technology to turn any photo or video into a real-time moody oil painting, vibrant watercolor or elegant pencil sketch while recording. 

The updated Clips app also gets new Disney stickers as well as Star Wars animated stickers. Users can also add the 16 new Apple-designed stickers and 21 new royalty-free soundtracks from indie artists to the video. Just like other Clips soundtracks, the newly added tracks will automatically adjust to match the length of videos.

Apple has also added iCloud support, enabling users to access and edit their Clips videos across iPhone and iPad via iCloud. Lastly, Clips now support Shared iPad, so students can create video in both on-to-one and Shared iPad environments.

Clips 2.0 is available for free on the App Store and is compatible with iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini 2 and later models, running iOS 11.1 and later.
