How To Brighten A Video On Your iPhone Before Or During Recording?


A dark video is not a delight to watch. However, a lot of times, it is difficult to tell in the moment that the footage you are recording is so dimly lit to be seamlessly viewed. Making your iPhone video brighter can simplify your viewing of the action on screen and will make the clip more appealing if it is uploaded to a social media platform or webpage.

Sadly, the iPhone’s built-in camera application does not let you brighten clips after you create them, therefore, you must always do all you can to brighten a video before recording commences. Let’s break it down:

How Can I Brighten An iPhone Video Before Or During Recording?

  1. Launch the camera application and scroll left to toggle to video.
  2. Click on the screen to make a sun-shaped icon visible.
