  • Control Center: Scroll down and find the “Control Center” option.
  • Customize Controls: Tap on “Customize Controls” to modify the Control Center settings.
  • Screen Recording: Look for “Screen Recording” in the list of available controls and tap the green plus icon next to it. This will add it to your Control Center.

Step 2: Access Control Center

Now that you have added “Screen Recording” to your Control Center, follow these steps:

  • Unlock your iPhone: If your phone is locked, unlock it using Face ID, Touch ID, or passcode.
  • iOS 14 or earlier: Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access Control Center.
  • iOS 15 or later: Swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen (where battery percentage is displayed) to access Control Center.

Step 3: Start Screen Recording

You are now ready to begin recording your iPhone screen. Follow these simple instructions:

  • Open Control Center: Access the Control Center using the method mentioned in Step 2.
  • Screen Recording Button: Look for the “Screen Recording” button represented by a solid white circle inside a larger circle.

    Tap on it.

  • Record Confirmation: A pop-up will appear with a red banner at the top indicating that the screen is being recorded. Tap on “Start Recording” to commence.

Step 4: Stop Screen Recording

You have successfully started recording your iPhone screen. To stop the recording, follow these final steps:

  • Stop Recording Button: To end the recording session, locate the red status bar at the top of your screen.
  • iOS 14 or earlier: Tap on the red status bar and select “Stop”.

  • Banner Dismissal: The red recording banner at the top of your screen will disappear automatically after a few seconds. However, if you wish to hide it immediately, go to Control Center and tap on the “Screen Recording” button again.

With this newfound knowledge, you can now record your iPhone 13 screen effortlessly. Happy recording!
