Are you wondering how to video screen on your iPhone? Look no further!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step. Whether you want to capture a gameplay session, record a video call, or create a tutorial for your app, we’ve got you covered.

Method 1: Using the Built-in Screen Recorder

If you have an iPhone running iOS 11 or later, Apple has made it incredibly easy to record your screen without the need for any third-party apps. Here’s how:

  1. Step 1: Open the Control Center by swiping down from the top-right corner of your screen (iPhone X and later) or by swiping up from the bottom of your screen (iPhone 8 and earlier).
  2. Step 2: Look for the “Screen Recording” button – it looks like a white circle inside a larger circle. If you don’t see it, you might need to add it to your Control Center.

    To do this, go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls and tap on the green “+” icon next to “Screen Recording”.

  3. Step 3: Tap on the “Screen Recording” button.
  4. Step 4: A countdown timer will appear, giving you three seconds before it starts recording.
  5. Step 5: To stop recording, tap on the red status bar at the top of your screen and confirm by tapping “Stop”. The video will be saved in your Photos app.

You can also enable microphone audio while recording by long-pressing or force-touching the “Screen Recording” button in the Control Center and toggling on “Microphone Audio”.

Method 2: Using Third-Party Apps

If you prefer more advanced features or need to record your screen with specific settings, there are several great third-party apps available in the App Store. Here are some popular options:

  • 1. QuickTime Player: If you have a Mac computer, you can connect your iPhone to it using a lightning cable and record your screen using QuickTime Player.
  • 2.

    TechSmith Capture: This app offers powerful screen recording capabilities along with editing features.

  • 3. DU Recorder: DU Recorder is a versatile app that not only allows you to record your screen but also offers live streaming options.

To use these apps, simply search for them in the App Store, install them on your iPhone, and follow the on-screen instructions to start recording.

Tips for Recording:

Now that you know how to video screen on your iPhone let’s go over some tips to help you make the most out of your recordings:

  • Keep it steady: To avoid shaky footage, try using a tripod or stabilizer.
  • Clean up your home screen: Remove any unnecessary icons or notifications from your home screen before recording.
  • Show touch gestures: If you’re creating a tutorial or demonstrating an app, enable “Show Touches” in Settings > Accessibility > Touch > AssistiveTouch. This will display circle overlays whenever you tap on the screen.

In Conclusion

Capturing videos of your iPhone’s screen has never been easier. With the built-in screen recorder or third-party apps, you can record gameplay, create tutorials, or simply share your iPhone screen with others. So go ahead and start recording!
