Solution 4: Enable Noise Remover in iPhone Camera App (iOS 9)

Solution 5: Use Video Editor Pro or Video FX (free)

There are other video editing apps available for download through the App Store that are designed specifically to remove background noise. With these programs, you can also enhance your videos with removing the background noise that is coming from outside of the camera’s view.

These can be used to achieve specific effects or filters that are not available in other apps unless you purchase the full version. The full version of these apps will cost around $6-$10 each depending on what features you want to use. They will allow you to do advanced editing and to use advanced techniques for removing background noise.

A few notes to keep in mind: don’t expect a perfect result from any of these solutions. Filtering out noise from a video is a very difficult process and can never be perfectly accurate, even with professional tools that are used in post production studios.

The only way to get a perfect result is to record without any background noise or to increase the distance between the camera and it’s source as much as possible.
