Sharing a recorded video to other social media platforms or to a private chat is very easy. Sometimes, you want to share a video with others but don’t want to send it along with the distorting/distracting soundtrack or maybe you want to eliminate it due to privacy concerns. Now you don’t have to install a third-party app to achieve this goal as iPhone’s Photo gallery has a built-in option to do it.
In this guide, we will show you how to detach audio from a video on the iPhone.
Disabling Audio from a Video on iPhone
Here’s how you can detach audio from a video in iPhone before sharing it with anyone:
- head over to Photo’s app in your Apple device, and navigate the video that you want to share. Click on the video’s thumbnail to open it.
- Tap on the “Edit” option given on the top-right corner of the photo’s app screen.
- Now, tap on the speaker icon on the top-left corner of the screen. With the soundtrack enabled for the video, this icon is in bright yellow color but with the audio disabled, it will change to a grey color.
- Tapping on the yellow speaker icon does not only mute or detach audio but it will completely remove the audio file from the video.
- Tap on “Done” to save the changes you have made to your video.
Once you have muted the video, now you can share it with anyone you want. Photos app provides the facility to revert the changes made by simply a tap. If you decide to add audio back to the video, go to the photos app, tap on the video you just edited, and tap on the “Edit” option. From the editing screen, tap “Revert” to reverse the changes made earlier.
