How to Convert Video to The New iPhone 5

With a bigger touch screen, the new iPhone 5 is more appropriate to watch movies and videos than the previous versions. However, the sixth generation of the iPhone has the similar video specs as its predecessors, and just supports very few video formats like M4V and MP4. So, most of video format files can't directly play on the new iPhone. You have to convert them to iPhone 5 supported video formats first.

To convert video to iPhone 5 compatible video formats, you need a professional video converter just like Wondershare Video Converter ( Video Converter for Mac ).
