Clips Introduces Selfie Scenes for Immersive 360-Degree Selfies on iPhone X

Apple has announced a major update to Clips, the free app for iOS that makes it easy to create and share fun videos using an iPhone or iPad. Clips introduces Selfie Scenes, adds artistic style transfer effects and a redesigned interface that makes it easier than ever to create great videos on the go.

“Clips users love how quick and easy it is to create amazing videos on iPhone or iPad,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s Vice President of Apps Product Marketing.

“And we’re making it even more fun with Selfie Scenes. By harnessing the incredible new TrueDepth camera system on iPhone X, users can now record selfies against a variety of fun and whimsical backdrops with just a tap.”

Selfie Scenes is an exciting new feature that places users into animated, 360-degree scenes when recording selfies. Using the sophisticated new TrueDepth camera system on iPhone X, Selfie Scenes transports users into bustling cities, serene landscapes and abstract paintings.

With Selfie Scenes, users can choose from 10 Apple-designed scenes, featuring unique locations, characters, colours and visual styles. Each scene is a full 360-degree experience, so it surrounds users on all sides as they move around. Environmental sound effects make the scenes even more immersive.

The easy-to-use interface gets even better with a streamlined design that puts frequently used controls within reach. A new Effects browser lets users view and choose filters, labels, stickers and emoji’s.

Users can now access and edit their Clips videos across iPhone and iPad via iCloud. Videos are automatically uploaded and backed up to iCloud, so users can start a video on iPhone and finish it later on iPad. Photos and video clips in the iCloud Photo Library are referenced by Clips, not copied, to make efficient use of iCloud storage.

Clips 2.0 is available as a free update on the App Store and is compatible with iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini. Selfie Scenes are only available on iPhone X.
