How to Rotate A Video on iPhone/Android [Free Ways]
Sometimes, we take videos in wrong orientation on iPhone, iPad or Android phone. For example, you started taking a video in portrait orientation, but then it came out sideways. Or the other way around, you were intended to shoot the video in landscape mode but got a video in portrait orientation.
You can fix these sideways or upside-down videos on iPhone or Android by changing the orientation of the videos. Rotating videos on your phone are not as difficult as it sounds. There are free and easy-to-use tools to rotate videos on both Android and iOS systems. Let's go through them one by one.
How to Rotate/Flip A Video on iPhone(Two Ways)
There are 2 tools you can use to turn a video sideways or upside-down on iPhone/iPad: one is to rotate videos with iMovie for iOS, the other is to download a video rotating app - Video Rotate And Flip.

Flip A Video with Video Rotate App
Another way to rotate a video on iPhone and iPad is by using the app: Video Rotate And Flip. The app can rotate a video to your liking in one click and then save the rotated video as a new file. However, the app is for purchase and also from the reviews we have seen, the app is a storage hogger as it creates a new video every time it rotates a video.
- Purchase Video Rotate And Flip from App Store.
- Open the app and select the video with the wrong orientation from your Photos app.
- There are three buttons: Rotate the video 90 degrees, flip the video vertically, flip the video horizontally. Tap one of the button to change the video to the right orientation.
- Tap Save. The app will rotate the video and save it as a new video in the Photos app.
