Subsequently, choose the video to edit from the iOS gallery, selecting its preview , then tapping the button with the check mark in the menu that appears and the Create movie item located at the bottom.
In the iMovie editor that you are now viewing, tap on the preview of the movie that you find in the timeline at the bottom and press on the volume icon , also located at the bottom.
Good! Almost there: move the volume lever all the way to the left, so as to mute the sound and that's it.
Make, therefore, any other necessary changes to the video, using the tools at the bottom, and press the Finish button at the top left to save your project.
On the next screen, tap the share button , select the item Save video from the menu that appears and wait for the export procedure to be completed.
