What format is iPhone Video? 

According to Apple's official documentation, the iPhone supports opening videos in container formats like .mp4, .mov, .m4v, .3gp. And the default iPhone recording video format is H.264 QuickTime files in MOV format. But if you've set your recording settings to the "High Efficiency" option, your iPhone will capture video in HEVC format. Whether you've shot a video in MOV or HEVC format, you can follow these steps to convert it to MP4.

  • You want to edit your video in a video editing app.

Whatever your reasons for changing an iPhone video to MP4, you can achieve your goal with this iPhone data transfer tool - EaseUS MobiMover or online video converters. Now you can read the following instructions to know how they work to convert an iPhone video.

Actually, apart from those we introduced in this guide, you have many other options for a video to MP4 conversion.
