How to enable Spatial Audio on your iPhone video

The iPhone from Apple comes with a brilliant feature known as Spatial Audio. This feature can be activated when the Air Pods are paired with your iPhone to provide a dynamic sound experience. Dynamic head tracking is used by spatial audio when it is enabled to produce an immersive surround sound experience that brings out the best from the audio soundtrack.
