Unlike taking a screenshot on your iPhone, combining videos requires special apps. One way to combine videos on your iPhone is by installing Apple’s free video editing app – iMovie. Through this app, you can edit different clips, add audio to your video, merge different videos, crop your edits, etc. Once you have installed the iMovie app, Launch It from its location on your iPhone.
