The stock Camera app on iPhone can help us take slow motion videos. In this quick guide, we will show you how to configure slow motion video settings, record slo-mo videos and remove slow motion from video on iPhone. We will use a iPhone 8 Plus in the demo, the instructions below however can be applied to iPhone X, iPhone 8 and some earlier iPhone models. If you are using an old iPhone model that does not support slo-mo vidoe recording, you can use a third party video editor to slow down videos on iPhone and thus create the slow motion effect.

A minute of slow motion video which is captured in 1080p HD at 120 fps may take around 170MB storage space, for slow motion videos in 1080p HD at 240 fps, it could be 480MB approximately.
