Using the Photos app and iMovie, this article explains how to adjust the video speed of slo-mo iPhone videos to standard speed. All iPhone models running iOS 13 and later are covered by these instructions. The main concepts apply to previous versions of iOS as well, though the processes may vary slightly.


How to Speed Up Video In the Photos App on an iPhone

The pre-installed Photos app is probably the simplest way to alter video speed from slo-mo to standard speed on an iPhone. All of your slo-mo videos taken from your iPhone are saved there. The slo-mo videos can be sped up using the editing tools provided into Photos. Simply follow the steps below:

 1. Go to the Photos app.

 2. Choose Albums.

 3. Pull down to the Media Types section and select Slo-mo.

 4. Choose the slo-mo video that you’d like to speed up.

 5. Choose Edit once the video is open.

 6. A set of vertical lines runs along the bottom. These represent the video’s speed at that particular point in the recording. Lines that are relatively close together indicate normal speed, and lines that are quite far apart indicate slo-mo.

7. Choose the bar that has the lines in it and drag your finger across the slo-mo portion. This will shift all of the lines to the close-together version, indicating that they are running at normal speed.

8.  Choose Done to save the video once you’ve changed the speed of the video.

 Tip: If you changed your mind and want to return slo-mo to your video, choose the portion you’d like to slow down by dragging it into the yellow bar. Then drag your finger across the bar of lines to make the lines farther together.

How to Speed Up Video In iMovie on an iPhone

You may use Apple’s iMovie to edit movies if you want something a little more sophisticated than Photos (download iMovie at the App Store). The iMovie program includes a variety of video editing tools, such as filters, titles, music, and more. You may also convert slo-mo video to standard speed with it. To speed up video in iMovie, use these steps:

1. Go to iMovie.

2. Choose Create Project.

3. Choose Movie.

 4. Choose Media.

 5. Choose Video.

 7. Choose the slo-mo video you’d like to speed up. Then click the checkmark in the appearing menu.

 8. Choose Create Movie.

9. To access the editing tools at the bottom of the screen, tap the timeline of the video.

10. To access the playback speed controls, choose the clock symbol. The speed controls are a set of lines with a turtle at one end, representing slo-mo, and a rabbit at the other end, representing speed. The video’s pace is indicated by a number next to the rabbit image.

11. Set the speed control slider to 1x, and the number next to the rabbit will appear. That’s a normal speed.

12. To save the video with the speed altered, choose Done.

13. To share, export, or do other things with the video, tap the app icon (the square with the arrow coming out of it) from the video screen.
