Step 2: Then MobiMover will automatically load all the transferable items on the source iPhone. As you can see from the image below, you can transfer all files from one iPhone to another at once. If that's not you want, uncheck the categories you don't want to move and keep videos alone. What's more, the 1-Click Transfer model helps to transfer all videos from iPhone to iPhone. If you're going to send videos from one iPhone to another selectively, you should use the custom transfer feature.

Method 2: How to send videos from iPhone to iPhone using AirDrop

Supported Videos: Recorded Videos in Photos app

It's universally known that AirDrop can be used to send files from one AirDrop-supported device to another and videos are transferrable for AirDrop. Thus, you can share videos from iPhone to iPhone XS/XS Max/XR using AirDrop. The limitation of this method is that you can only copy videos in the Photos app. (AirDrop is not working on your iPhone? Fix the issue first.)

Step 1: Turn on AirDrop on your iPhones.

  • On iPhone 8/8 Plus and earlier: Swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone to open Control Center, click to enable AirDrop and set your device to be discovered by Everyone or Contacts Only. (Don't forget to turn on WLAN and Bluetooth.)
  • On iPhone X and later: Swipe down from the upper right corner of your iPhone screen to open Control Center, then turn on AirDrop, WLAN, and Bluetooth.

Step 2: Go to Photos app on your previous iPhone, choose the album that contains the videos you want to copy, and select the items.

Step 3: Click the share button and choose your iPhone XS/XS Max/XR in the AirDrop section.

Step 4: On your target iPhone, click Accept.

Method 3: How to share videos from iPhone to iPhone via iCloud

Supported Videos: Recorded Videos in Photos app

By turning on iCloud Photo Library on both of your iPhones, you can sync all your photos and videos on your old iPhone to your new iPhone when connected to Wi-Fi. Although you can achieve your goal of copying videos from one iPhone to another by this way, you can't freely choose the items to transfer using iCloud. Even so, transferring videos from iPhone to iPhone XS/XS Max/XR with iCloud could still be a preferred option when you want to sync data wirelessly. Make sure you are using the same Apple ID on your devices and then perform the following steps on both of them.

Step 1: Connect your iPhones to a stable and reliable Wi-Fi network.

Step 2: Open Settings.

Step 3: Go to [your name] > iCloud > Photos and toggle on iCloud Photo Library. Then all your photos and videos will be synced to iCloud and can be accessed on all your devices.

Method 4: How to transfer videos from iPhone to iPhone using Email

The last simple way you can apply to share videos from one iPhone to another is to use Email. Simple as it is, this method is not suitable for you to send large files because there is a limitation on the size of the email. However, if you intend to transfer an item in small size, you are recommended to use this tip.

Step 1: Go to Photos app on your previous iPhone and select the videos you'd like to transfer.

Step 2: Click the share button and choose Mail. (If you choose too many items, it will take a long time prepare.)

Step 3: Enter the information needed to send an email to yourself.

Step 4: Check the email on your iPhone XS/XS Max/XR and download the items to your device.
