First, you can download some VR content from YouTube. Or you can convert the normal video to VR mode for watching with your VR headset. To convert video to VR forma, there is a good and practical video converter, called Video Converter Ultimate which is capable of converting any video to 3D or VR mode. It has the output preset for Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, Ocuulus, etc. to make the virtual reality conversion easier. With this program, you can get more VR video by yourself and then transfer the converted VR video to your phone via Wi-Fi directly.

Which VR Headset do you own? You can play some regular 2D or SBS/TAB 3d format on your iPhone by downloading and installing a VR video player for your iPhone.

If you don't have a VR video. You can try to convert some normal videos to VR ones. And then you can try playing the VR videos. The tool I would recommend is DumpMedia Video Converter. It supports many output formats. And you can upscale your video resolution. (from SD to HD) If you want to edit your videos, this converter can also satisfy you.
