Clips also introduces Live Titles, a breakthrough feature that lets users create animated captions and titles using just the power of their voice.
Users simply speak into their iPhone or iPad's microphone with the words then appearing in the clip.
There's seven styles to choose from and these captions can even be edited by a simple tap on the screen allowing punctuation and extra words to be added or removed.
Along with captions, users of Clips can also place emojis, speech bubbles, arrows and banners into their creation with all videos instantly saved within the Clips app.
