We've all been there before: you take out your phone to capture an indispensable moment and later realize that your video is in portrait mode instead of landscape. Fortunately, this digital faux pass is easy to correct. While you used to have to use iMovie or a third-party app, you can easily rotate your video in iOS 13 and above to view in landscape mode using the editing tools in the Photos & # 39; s app.
We'll show you how to rotate a video on an iPhone using the editing tools in Photos & # 39; s, but also how to do it with iMovie, and if those methods aren't appropriate, check out our app suggestions to the end. ] Open the Photos & # 39; s app, find the video you want to rotate and tap it.
It is that simple, but if you are looking for more or you do not yet have an upgrade to iOS 1

Alternative third-party apps
