Safari makes it possible to download videos from various websites and content providers. While the process is straightforward, it does take a few steps to land the video you're watching on Safari into the Photos app. Safari has its own Downloads tab, which by default sends videos, photos, and documents directly to the Files app. The Files app has its own Downloads folder and syncs saved files to iCloud.
Sometimes an Instagram Reel really hits home. When you encounter content that strikes a nerve, some iPhone owners' first reaction is to save to the Photos app. Once your favorite videos are locally stored on your device, they can be enjoyed, sent to friends, or re-posted to your favorite social media app. While the Instagram app does not include an easy way to save Reels to the iPhone camera roll, there is a way to make this happen for free.
Entering video mode on the iPhone Camera app instantly shuts down any playing audio. iOS is set up this way because most people are interested in recording whatever sounds are happening in the video. The camera feature known as Quick Take allows music to continue playing over the iPhone speaker while a new video is recording.
It used to be that if you wanted to do any video editing aside from trimming, you'd have to pull your video into iMovie or a third-party video editing app. With iOS 13 that is no longer the case - the updated operating system makes just about all the photo editing tools available for videos as well. Now you can adjust the contrast, brightness, saturation and more, add filters, crop, rotate, straighten and mute audio all from the Photos app.
