Here I'd like to show you how to send videos from iPhone to iPhone, using four proven ways.

Method 1. How to Send Videos from iPhone to iPhone Easily

To transfer videos to your iPhone, another popular way is to download videos from YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and many other sites to your iOS device directly.

Method 2: How to Transfer Videos from iPhone to iPhone Using AirDrop

If you intend to share videos wirelessly, using AirDrop is a good choice. This built-in file-sharing utility allows you to transfer photos, videos, contacts, locations, websites, and more between two AirDrop-supported devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Mac.

Thus, it's workable to share videos from iPhone to iPhone via AirDrop. Make sure both iPhones are within the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi range, then follow the steps below to share your iPhone videos.

Step 1. Turn on AirDrop on both iPhones.

Step 2. On the source iPhone, go to the Photos app and choose the video you want to send.

Step 3. Click the "Share" button, choose "AirDrop", and then tap the name of the target iPhone.

Step 4. On the target device, click "Accept" to receive the video or videos from the other iPhone.

Method 3. How to Send Videos from iPhone to iPhone via iCloud

iCloud will help you in two ways:

If the video is less than 5 minutes in length, using iCloud Photos will sync videos across your devices.

If you are going to send a large video from your iPhone, use iCloud Drive instead. iCloud Drive stores almost any type of content as long as the file is less than 50GB and doesn't exceed your iCloud storage.

Make sure the iPhones are under Wi-Fi connections and there is enough iCloud Storage to save the photos and videos. Besides, you need to sign in to the iPhones with the same Apple ID account.

Specify your needs and choose the proper way to transfer videos.

Option 1. Use iCloud Photos

Step 1. On the source device, go to "Settings" > [your name] > "iCloud" > "Photos".

Step 2. Toggle on "iCloud Photos".

Step 3. Repeat the first two steps on the target iPhone and then the videos will be shared from one iPhone to another automatically.

Option 2. Use iCloud Drive

Step 1. On the source iOS device, go to "Settings" > [your Apple ID] > "iCloud" and scroll down to enable "iCloud Drive".

Step 2. Find the large file you'd like to send to your PC and tap the share icon.

Step 3. Choose "Save to Files" > "iCloud Drive" and select or create a folder in iCloud Drive to save the item.

Step 4. On the other iPhone, turn on "iCloud Drive", go to the "Files" app > "Browse" > "iCloud Drive", then find the folder that contains the shared videos.

Step 5. View the video directly from the cloud storage or download it to your device.

Method 4. How to Send a Video from iPhone to iPhone via Email

Any file that can be added to an email as an attachment can be transferred between different devices. It's no exception when it comes to videos.

Using mail is also a wireless way to transfer videos from your iPhone. Unlike iCloud that has many limitations, mail provides you with a more flexible solution to share videos between devices. Other than video files, it also supports other files like messages, photos, audio files, documents, and more.

All you need is to share the video via an email and send the email to your own or another's accounts. Afterward, check the email on the target iPhone and download the item to the device.

The Bottom Line

 Whether you want to know how to transfer videos from iPhone to iPhone or how to send long videos from iPhone, you now know how can you do it with the help of a third-party tool, AirDrop, iCloud, or email. Actually, there are other workable ways to complete the iPhone transfer but these four are the commonest solutions.

Don't hesitate to apply one of them to transfer videos with ease.
