– Use the Duplicate button to instantly create a copy of a clip with all its effects
– Tap the Split button to divide any clip in two
– Make stickers pop on and off the screen–just split any clip and apply stickers to either of the two new sections

– Celebrate spring with the floral Springtime poster
– Choose from 11 new Mickey and Minnie Mouse stickers, each with its own expressive animation

Apple’s Clips app is designed to allow users to combine video clips, images, and photos with voice-based titles, stickers, music, filters, and graphics to create unique videos that can be shared on social media networks.
Prior to today’s update, Clips was last updated in December 2019 to add new Animoji and Memoji. The app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]
