Are you looking for a way to record your screen on your iPhone? Whether you want to capture a tutorial, a gaming session, or just want to show someone how to do something on their iPhone, screen recording can be a handy tool. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of recording your screen on an iPhone using the built-in screen recording feature.

Step 1: Enable Screen Recording

To start recording your screen, you’ll need to enable the screen recording feature on your iPhone. Follow these steps:

  • Step 1.1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Step 1.2: Scroll down and tap on “Control Center”.3: Tap on “Customize Controls”.4: Find “Screen Recording” in the list and tap on the green plus button next to it.

Once you’ve added Screen Recording to your Control Center, you’re ready to start recording your screen.

Step 2: Access Control Center

To access Control Center, swipe down from the top-right corner of your iPhone’s screen (or swipe up from the bottom if you’re using an older iPhone model with a home button).


If you have an iPhone X or later, or an iPad with iOS 12 or later, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen instead of swiping up from the bottom.

Step 3: Start Screen Recording

In Control Center, locate and tap on the “Screen Recording” button. It looks like a circle inside another circle.

After tapping the button, a three-second countdown will appear. This gives you time to navigate to the screen you want to record.


If you want to record audio while recording your screen, press and hold the “Screen Recording” button, then tap on the “Microphone Audio” option. This will enable audio recording from your device’s microphone.

Step 4: Stop Screen Recording

To stop the screen recording, tap on the red status bar at the top of your screen and select “Stop”. Alternatively, you can also go back to Control Center and tap on the “Screen Recording” button again.


If you’re recording audio along with your screen recording, a notification will appear after you stop the recording. You can tap on it to access your recorded video in the Photos app.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully recorded your screen on your iPhone using the built-in screen recording feature. Now you can share your recordings with friends, family, or use them for creating engaging content.

Remember that when using screen recording, be mindful of privacy and respect others’ rights. Only record what is necessary and avoid capturing sensitive information or content without permission.
