Recording on iPhone is as easy as taking a screenshot. But when it comes to doing it like a pro, you need to know a few things.
Here are a few things that we will be talking about in this article.
How to screen record on your iPhone
The good news is iPhone, despite being quite a closed system with its iOS platform, still allows users to record their screens natively. Which means it’s built into the OS. You don’t need to install any app for it.
Enable the record button in Control Center
You need to have the Screen Record button in the control center if you want to screen record on your iPhone. The buttons are present in the Control Center by default, but if you don’t have them there for some reason, it can be done from the settings area.
Control Center can be accessed by swiping down from the top right side of your iPhone. When it is from the App, you want to record something. If you want to card something in the WhatsApp app, keep that open, or if it’s a YouTube video.
Swipe down from the top right-hand side and Tap on the Record button. Once tapped, a countdown timer will start giving you the time to return to your screen.
Once the screen Recording starts, the time appearing on the top left side of your iPhone will turn red, notifying you it is recording.
Swipe down from the top right side of the screen and tap on the record button again to stop the recording.
Tip #1: If you want to record your voice along with the screen recording to create a tutorial-type video, press the Record button while starting the screen recording. It will give you the option to turn the Min ON.
Tip #2: Once you are done recording, the recording can be viewed from the notification area, if you somehow miss it, it gets stored in the Photos app. You can edit the video further to refine the end or the start of the video. You can also crop the video to eliminate the unwanted screen area.
Tip #3: Make sure your iPhone is on DO Not Disturb mode so that notifications and phone calls do not get recorded while the screen record is running.
