In this update, Apple gets improvements in A11 processors, wireless charging, etc and appearance (all-grass body, OLED display). But, the highlight of iPhone 8 must be Face ID. As we know, Face ID will replace the traditional Touch ID to provide you with more secure iPhone unlocking and usability.

This news will make many iPhone fans so excited. Because they can simply play their favorite movies and music videos on iPhone. Surely, a functional and useful iPhone video converter is indispensable in the process of transferring video files to iPhone 6S/7/8/8 Plus.

Part One: iPhone Supported Video and Audio Formats

Before putting various videos to iPhone, the first thing you must figure out is whether you have prepared the compatible video files. If not, converting video to iPhone looks like pretty necessary; if you don't know, keep reading. Although there isn't any detailed information related to iPhone supported video/audio formats, it is very possible that iPhone 6S/7/8/Plus support the pre-existing video and formats.

Audio formats supported: AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), HE-AAC, MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV.

Video formats supported: H.264 video up to 1080p, 60 frames per second, High Profile level 4.2 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format.

In theory, common movies with .m4v, .mp4 and .mov file extension can well play on iPhone 8/Plus based on the foregoing information. But that is not entirely true. As is known to all, different video formats may have different video or audio codec. That is to say, though you import video to iPhone 8/Plus with the same file extension, it also can't play normally, not to speak of other common or HD video formats like MKV, AVI, MP4 MTS, FLV and more. Now, are you still sure you don't need a video converter for iPhone?

Of course, 4K Ultra HD videos can't be missed nowadays and 1080P/720P HD videos still are favored by movie fans. But on account of the limitation from video formats, many users don't know how to make those different format videos playable on the smartphone.
