Here is how to make a video of what you’re seeing on your phone or browsing through on your iPhone on easy step by step.
Whether you want to preserve a clip from a game you’re playing, record part of a live broadcast on Instagram, or make a how-to video for your pals, recording your iPhone screen may be useful.
You may send the video clip to a family or friend, publish it on Twitter, or share it on Instagram. Whether you have a newer or older iPhone, these are the steps to record your screen.
Screen recording is integrated into iPhones, but you must first check to see if the screen record button is there in your Control Center in order to utilize it.
Slide down from the top-right corner of an iPhone X or later to activate the Control Center; swipe up if you have an iPhone 8 or older.
Look for the screen recording button, which resembles a dot with a circle around it.
Here’s how to get it if you don’t already have it.
Open the Settings menu.
Select “Control Center” from the menu.
Select “Customize Controls” from the drop-down menu.
This is where you may customise your Control Center menu by adding and removing things. Scroll down to “Screen Recording” and press the green plus sign symbol. This will move it to the top of the “Include” section from the bottom of the “More Controls” section.
Take a screenshot of your screen
You’re all set to record your screen now. (Just be aware that certain program prevents screen recording.) To begin, consider the following:
- Open the app or website where you want to record.
- Swipe up from the bottom-right corner to bring up the Control Center menu (iPhone 8 or before), or pull down from the top-right corner to bring up the menu (iPhone X or later)
- Toggle on Do Not Disturb by tapping the crescent moon button, which will momentarily halt calls and alerts. This is useful because when you record your screen, everything that appears, including alerts, is recorded. You’ll see more options if you tap and hold the Do Not Disturb button, such as turning off notifications for an hour or scheduling when you want to halt them.
- To begin recording, touch the screen record button while remaining in the Control Center. When you press the screen record button, a countdown begins, giving you three seconds before the recording begins.
- Hide the Control Center menu by tapping the screen.
- You’re now ready to record both the video and audio of whatever you’re seeing or listening to on your phone — but not any audio that isn’t created by your phone.
- You’ll need to switch on your microphone if you want to record yourself talking (or any other external noises) in addition to the audio you’re playing on your phone:
- Press and hold the screen record button before you begin recording. Tap the microphone button on the pop-up screen to activate it.
- Then press the “Start Recording” button. In this window, the countdown will begin.
- To quit a screen, tap anywhere on it, then hit the next screen to shut the Control Center.
- Remember that the microphone will remain on until you go back in and turn it off the next time you record your screen.
- Swipe up (or down) to return to the Control Center and hit the record button once again to stop recording.
- Unless you have media open (for example, you’re watching a YouTube video or Instagram story), you’ll see a red bar at the top of your screen (or top left if you have a recent iPhone) showing that you’re recording. If you tap on that bar, a pop-up window will appear, asking if you wish to stop recording. “Stop” should be pressed.
- The recording will be saved in your Images app among the rest of your photos and videos.
