How Do I Rotate a Video on My iPhone Camera Roll?

Are you struggling to figure out how to rotate a video on your iPhone camera roll? Don’t worry, it’s a common issue that many iPhone users face.

Fortunately, it’s easy to fix with a few simple steps. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process of rotating a video on your iPhone camera roll.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

The first step is to open the Photos app on your iPhone. This app is pre-installed on all iPhones and can be found on your home screen. Once you’ve opened the app, find the video that you want to rotate.

Step 2: Tap Edit

Once you’ve found the video, tap on it to open it. Then, tap the “Edit” button in the top right-hand corner of your screen.

Step 3: Rotate Your Video

After tapping “Edit,” you will see a group of editing tools at the bottom of your screen. To rotate your video, tap on the “Crop and Rotate” icon (it looks like two arrows forming a circle).

To rotate your video clockwise, tap on the right-hand arrow icon. To rotate your video counterclockwise, tap on the left-hand arrow icon. Keep tapping until your video is rotated to your desired orientation.

Step 4: Save Your Changes

Once you have rotated your video, tap “Done” in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. After this step is complete, make sure to save changes by tapping “Save as New Clip” or “Save Video.”

Remember that rotating a video will create a new clip and won’t affect the original file in any way.


  • If you accidentally edit or change something in your original file, don’t worry. You can always revert to the original video by tapping “Revert” in the top right-hand corner of your screen while editing.
  • If you want to edit multiple videos at once, select all the videos you want to edit by tapping “Select” in the top right-hand corner of the screen, then tap “Edit.”


And that’s it! By following these simple steps, you can easily rotate a video on your iPhone camera roll.

The Photos app provides an easy way to edit and save your videos without having to use a third-party app. Now that you know how to rotate a video on your iPhone, you can make sure all of your videos are in the correct orientation for sharing with friends and family.
