Daily Tip: How to playback video on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch in slow-motion

The in-built Apple video player app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch has a hidden feature that some will find very handy. It enables you to slow down a video including the audio playback. This could be very handy if you are watching a video tutorial or following along to a cooking recipe.

  • Open up a video you would like to watch
  • Play the video then select pause before the part you would like to watch in slow-motion
  • Hold down the fast-forward control button whilst in a paused state
  • The video will now continue in slow-motion as long as you hold your finger on the fast-forward button

That is all there is to it, you will now be able to view your video in slow-motion.
