Clips goes soccer mad with new World Cup update

Ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which kicks off on June 14, Apple has updated its Clips video app with a soccer-themed refresh.

The free apps allows users to combine video clips, photos and music into short videos that they can share with friends and family. To add some flair to these videos, it’s possible to utilize filters, emoji, stickers, captions and more. The new Clips update includes new soccer graphics.

These soccer graphics include an animated sticker, along with a label and poster with customizable text.

Clips keeps getting better

The 2.0.4 update is the latest in a series of recent updates for Clips.

Version 2.0 included a plethora of updates, such as 360-degree selfie scenes for the iPhone X, which uses the phone’s TrueDepth camera to separate you from the background and place you in animated scenes — such as the Millennium Falcon and Mega Destroyer from Star Wars.

There are also a range of new filters, effects, and stickers including vintage Apple logos, Star Wars, Disney and Pixar.

If you haven’t checked out Clips before, you can do so by downloading it from the App Store. The app — which launched roughly this time last year — is free to download.

It’s available for all iOS devices running iOS 11 and above. You will, however, need to own the latest flagship iPhone to use features like the selfie scenes.
