TikTok, Reels, Stories, and More

In the “olden days” before social media, videos were either professionally produced or recorded on home camcorders that stayed tucked away on our private media shelves. But now, everyone has a high-quality video tool in their back pocket. The iPhone 13 has a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display with ApplevProMotion, the “world’s most advanced display,” and Dolby Vision HDR with up to 4K recordingvresolution. Basically, our phones can now record incredible video quality that we didn’t dream ofvbefore. Vertical video once meant a low-quality phone recording that never looked quite right on social media.

Vertical uploads on YouTube, for example, would appear smaller with two dark vertical bars on each side. But that has changed: YouTube has since enabled the full screen feature for vertical videos. In addition, platforms like TikTok and Instagram Reels have made vertical video not only the norm but also the setting for professionally-produced short videos and advertisements. There’s also something convenient and approachable about vertical video. It’s easy to snap from
anywhere and is tailored to the size of our phone screens.
