Before starting with any of these tips, make sure you've known that any attempts to use the copyrighted content for commercial purposes without the video holder's permission are illegal. So you'd better make sure your videos come from a legitimate source.

5 Ways to Convert Videos to MP3 on iPhone

To change a video to audio, you'll need some utilities to help as iPhone can't convert a video to the audio itself. These tools include desktop-based audio rippers, apps, online tools, even iTunes. All of these tools or services have their pros and cons. Now, you can select one based on your needs.

Way 1. Using EaseUS MobiMover - All in one Audio Ripper

Way 2. Using the Shortcuts App

If you want to convert iPhone videos with your iPhone only, you should try using Shortcuts, an app that helps create automated workflows on your device. If you often use it for iOS data management, you might be very familiar with this app. If you've never used it, it's time to let it help you do something. 

Step 1. Install and open the Shortcuts app on your iPhone.

Step 2. Tap "Create Shortcut," and then tap "Add Action."

Way 3. Using Audio Ripper Apps 

Apart from the Shortcuts, many other audio converter apps in the App Store also convert videos to audio. You can search for one from the App Store by entering some keywords like "Convert Videos to Audios" or "Audio Rippers" or "Audio Extractor," etc. Since you can easily find such apps in the App Store, we won't give examples here.

Way 4. Using iTunes

iTunes also can help you do a quick conversion. But it only works with videos stored in iTunes Library. If your videos are saved on your iPhone, you'll need to transfer videos from your iPhone to a computer first, and then convert them with iTunes. 

Step 1. Set your iTunes to import videos in MP3 format.

  • On your computer, launch iTunes. Click "Edit" > "Preference" > "Import Settings."
  • Next to the "Import Using," choose "MP3 Encoder," and then press "OK." 

Step 2. Transfer videos from your iPhone to the computer

Step 3. Rename the extension of the imported videos from MP4 to M4A. If you can't see its file extension, that means the extension is hidden. Thus, you can click on "View" and check the files extension option to unhide it.

Step 4. Drag and drop the video to the iTunes Library.

Step 5. Select the M4A file in your iTunes Library >"File" > "Convert" > "Create MP3 version."

Step 6. Then, the converted audio will appear in your iTunes library, and you can sync it to your iPhone.

The Final Words

With the methods introduced above, you can easily convert iPhone videos to MP3. Among these methods, Method 1 is undoubtedly the most convenient since it not only supports batch converting videos but also allows you to download wanted videos directly with a URL. If we have to list a shortcoming of this tool, that must be that it requires an installation on your computer. If you don't want to install a third-party tool, you can try using iTunes, QuickTime Player, or File App to get the job done.
