Apple Clips update brings six new Selfie Scenes, three new filters and much more

Apple Clips

Apple’s Clips app gets a new update that brings more great content for video creation. The new version of Clips adds six Selfie Scenes. The Selfie Scenes use the TrueDepth camera system to allow users to record themselves against immersive, animated backdrops including a beautiful rainforest, a mad scientist’s lab and even an action-packed scene from Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2.

The Selfie Scenes tap takes advantage of the Neural Engine on the A12 Bionic chip to deliver incredible portrait segmentation during preview and recording. Clips also get three new filters including a black-and-white comic book, monochrome watercolor painting, and aged film. New posters let users create great-looking title cards for their videos with themes like science, sports, and a silent movie, as well as animated posters from Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 and Coco. New stickers and text labels let users add emphasis and fun annotations to videos.

Clips 2.0.5 is available today as a free update on the App Store and is compatible with iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini 2 and later models running iOS 11.1 and later. Style transfer effects require iPhone 7 or 2017 iPad Pro and later. Selfie Scenes require iPhone or iPad Pro with a TrueDepth camera.
