How to record a video with your iPhone or iPad
The Camera app on the iPhone and iPad isn't just for taking still shots. With access to both the 1080p iSight camera on the back and the 720p FaceTime camera on the front, it's also great for shooting video of everything and anything, from sports to kids to pets to breaking news to moving selfies.
How to shoot up to 1080p video with your iPhone or iPad
- Launch the Camera app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
- The default mode is Photo as you can see underneath the capture area.
- Just to the left of that, you can see the word Video.
- To switch to Video mode, just swipe across the bottom menu to the right.
That's all there is to it, underneath the capture area you should now see video and the controls should have changed to video. Swiping to the left will return you to standard photo mode. You can also swipe even further to the left to access other modes such as square photos and panoramas.
