It is too common to record some footage with our iPhone to remember the happy time of your life. It is convenient comparing to using a HD Camera. But convenience also brings with trouble. It can't give you a 100% success to import your iPhone footage to Premiere Pro (CC, CS6, CS5, CS4) for editing. Some people reported that when they import a timelapse recorded on iPhone but keep getting a import failure message, it said "The file has no audio or video streams" or "Unsupported Video File".
Reasons for "Can't Edit iPhone Video in Premiere Pro"
Generally, iPhone (including iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, etc.) records videos in MOV files compressed with H.264 codec. The H.264 codec is a final delivery codec but it is not the best codec for Premiere Pro (CC, CS6, CS5, CS4) editing.
In addition, many people like to record videos on iPhone with some third-party apps like Filmic Pro. Some third-party video recording software like Filmic Pro natively defaults to recording audio as 48khz aiff. This doesn't play nicely with the mp4 stream produced by the app. So when you import iPhone videos recorded by Filmic Pro to Premiere Pro, it might yield a "file has no audio or video streams". However, if you set the audio within Filmic pro to record as a 44.1 khz pcm stream (in the audio settings), all is solved and the audio comes through fine.
But it is not 100% workable just like that some people can smoothly import iPhone videos to Premiere Pro (CC, CS6, CS5, CS4) for editing without hassles. The best solution to fix this will to transcode iPhone video to Premiere Pro more comaptible video format and codec with a video transcoder/converter.
