1. Sign In to Your YouTube Account

The first step to uploading a video to YouTube from your iPhone is to sign in to your YouTube account. If you don’t have a YouTube account, then you will need to create one first. Once you have signed in, you will be directed to the YouTube homepage.

2. Access the Camera Roll on Your iPhone

To access the video you want to upload, you need to access the camera roll on your iPhone. The camera roll contains all the videos and photos you have taken with your iPhone.

3. Select the Video You Want to Upload

After accessing the camera roll, select the video you want to upload to YouTube. Once you have selected the video, tap on the share icon, which is usually located at the bottom left corner of your screen.

4. Trim the Video if Necessary

If the video you want to upload is too long, you can trim it before uploading it to YouTube. To trim the video, tap on the “Edit” option and then use the slider to select the part of the video you want to keep. Once you are done, tap on “Done.”

5. Add a Title and Description

After trimming the video, you need to add a title and description to your video. The title should be short and descriptive, and the description should give an overview of what your video is about.

6. Choose a Thumbnail

The thumbnail is the image that will represent your video on YouTube. You can choose an image from the video or select a custom thumbnail. The thumbnail should be relevant and eye-catching.

7. Select a Category and Add Tags

Selecting a category and adding tags to your video will help users find your video on YouTube. Choose a category that best describes your video and add relevant tags that relate to your video.

8. Set the Visibility and Privacy Settings

Before uploading your video, you need to set the visibility and privacy settings. You can choose to make your video public, private, or unlisted. Public videos can be viewed by anyone, private videos can only be viewed by people you invite, and unlisted videos can only be viewed by people who have the link.

9. Add Video to a Playlist

If you want to add your video to a playlist, you can do so before uploading it to YouTube. A playlist is a collection of videos that are related to each other.

10. Upload the Video

After completing all the steps above, you are now ready to upload your video to YouTube. Tap on the “Upload” button, and your video will start uploading to YouTube. The time it takes to upload a video depends on the size of the video and the speed of your internet connection.

11. Check the Video’s Status

Once your video has finished uploading, you can check its status by going to the “Video Manager” on your YouTube channel. Here, you can see if the video is still processing or if it has been successfully uploaded to YouTube.

12. Edit or Delete the Video

If you need to edit or delete your video, you can do so by going to the “Video Manager” and selecting the video you want to edit or delete. From here, you can make changes to the video’s title, description, tags, and more.
