3 Easy Ways to Rotate Videos on iPhone

If you've ever recorded a video on your iPhone and realized that it's in the wrong orientation, you know how frustrating it can be. Unfortunately, the Photos app doesn't allow you to rotate videos like it does with images. But don't worry, we've got you covered! In this article, we'll show you three simple methods to rotate videos on your iPhone.

Method 1: Use iMovie Extension

If you're looking for a full-fledged video editor that can also rotate your videos, iMovie is the way to go. However, if you only need to rotate videos occasionally, the iMovie extension in the Photos app is a much simpler alternative.

First, make sure you have iMovie installed on your iPhone. If not, you can download it for free from the App Store. Once installed, open the Photos app and select the video you want to rotate. Tap on the three horizontal dots at the bottom of the screen and choose the iMovie extension.

Now, you can use your fingers to rotate the video to the desired orientation. When you're satisfied, save the video, and it will replace the original file in your camera roll.

Method 2: Use an App

If you don't want to install a full video editing app like iMovie, you can try using a dedicated rotation app like “Rotate and Flip” from the App Store. This app allows you to rotate videos 90 degrees clockwise and flip them horizontally or vertically.

Simply open the app and grant it permission to access your Photos app. Load the video you want to rotate and use the rotate button in the middle to adjust the orientation. Once you're happy with the result, save the video, and it will be saved as a new file in your Photos app.

Method 3: Online Video Rotate

If you prefer using online video editors, you'll be pleased to know that there is a way to rotate videos on your iPhone. Thanks to the MyMedia File Manager app, you can use online video rotating websites and download the rotated videos to your Photos app.

To get started, download the MyMedia File Manager app from the App Store and open it. Tap on the browser icon at the bottom left corner of the screen. From there, you can use any online video editor, such as “Rotatemyvideo.net,” to rotate your video. Simply pick your video from the Photos app and use the arrow buttons to rotate it. Once you're satisfied, download and save the rotated video to your camera roll.


Now you know three easy methods to rotate videos on your iPhone. Whether you prefer using iMovie, a dedicated app, or an online video editor, these methods will help you fix videos with the wrong orientation. If you have a collection of disoriented videos, you can also transfer them to your computer for easier editing.
