How To Add Captions To Videos On An iPhone

Learn how to quickly and easily add captions to any video right on your iPhone.

Did you know that studies have shown that 80% of videos watched on social media are played while on mute? That’s why we created Zubtitle. When you use Zubtitle, our software automatically adds captions your videos by transcribing the audio and generating subtitle text. That means less work for you and a higher chance of your audience actually viewing your content.

Maybe you’ve never used Zubtitle before, or maybe you’ve only used it on your computer. Either way, this step-by-step guide will teach you how to add captions to your video with Zubtitle on your iPhone — no need to hop on your laptop or desktop!

We have several options for you to choose from so that you can pick the style that best suits you and your brand:
