Let's see how to record the screen on your iPhone or iPad. Do you need to capture what you see on the screen right now? With the built-in screen recording tool you can create a video of your screen activities and also help you take screenshots on your iPhone or iPad.
If you want to record screen on your iPhone or iPad, you don't need a third party app from the App Store. The ability to record the screen is integrated directly into iOS and iPadOS through a feature called Screen Recording.
By adding screen recording to the control panel, you can start a screen recording and then take individual screenshots of the video. This tool makes capturing your iPhone or iPad screen activity much easier than a third party program. Let's see how.
How to record iPhone or iPad screen
Customize Control Center
On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings> Control Center. Make sure the "Access within apps" option is turned on. Tap Customize Controls. In the More Controls section, tap Screen Recording to add it to the Control Center.
Now you can go to the app or screen you want to start recording. Open the Control Center and select the Screen Recording icon. If your device has 3D Touch, press the icon below to view more options. You can turn audio recording on or off by tapping the microphone icon and choose a different destination for screen recording other than the Photos library.
Tap Start Recording to begin capturing. If your device does not have 3D Touch, just tap the Screen Recording icon and the device will start recording. You will then see a countdown, after which the recording will begin.
When finished, you can stop recording without having to go back to the Control Center. A red icon with a timer will appear at the top of the screen (top left corner on iPhone, top right corner on iPad) while recording. Tap the icon and a message will open allowing you to stop recording. Tap Stop, a notification will pop up saying, your screen video recording has been saved to your device.
View the recording
You can view the screen recording in the Photos app. Tap the recording and tap Play to view it. From here, you can also browse the video, mute the audio, share it or delete it.
Screenshot on iPhone
You can also use screen recording to take screenshots of any activity that has already been recorded. This trick can come in handy if you're having trouble taking screenshots while using an app or performing another task. After recording the video, play the recorded video and pause at the right time.
Take a screenshot on your device by pressing the appropriate keys to take a static screenshot (side button + Volume up button on an iPhone or iPad Pro without a Home button; On / Off button + Home button on devices with a Home button).
