How to Adjust Video Alignment on iPhone and iPad

Today, iPhones have become so advanced in terms of camera performance. To shoot videos in 4K, you no more need a high-end DSLR (unless you’re a pro-grade shooter). Top-end quality of visuals you can get on an iPhone. Even on the cheaper mid-range iPhones with a single-camera setup, you get to capture 4K video. So, an iOS user can make good use of it. However, not everyone who shoots a video on iPhone is a pro.  Sometimes, you may have noticed some video qualities are pretty clean and high-end but they are not properly aligned.

Many users daily shoot loads of short videos on the iPhone. Also, some users have shot entire movies using iPhones. You won’t even know until you’re told it’s shot on an iPhone. The point is, whether you shoot a 1-minute random clip or a movie of 1-hour, the quality needs to be perfect if you need people to watch it. Talking of perfection, the video also needs to be properly aligned. Hopefully, iOS and iPad OS provide such useful editing tools to adjust video alignment on iPhone and iPad.  In this guide, I will tell you how to do this.
