How do I screen record on iPhone?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

To screen record on your iPhone, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
2. Scroll down and tap on “Control Center.”
3. Look for “Screen Recording” in the list of controls and tap on the green plus icon next to it. This will add the screen recording feature to your Control Center.

Now that you have enabled screen recording, you can proceed with capturing a screen recording with sound:

1. Swipe down from the top-right corner of your iPhone (or swipe up from the bottom if you have an older iPhone model) to open the Control Center.
2. In the Control Center, you’ll see a round button with a white circle inside it. This is the screen recording button. Tap on it.

Before the screen recording starts, you have the option to customize some settings:

– To record sound, force touch (or long-press) the screen recording button in the Control Center. This will open a menu where you can choose to record with or without sound. Select “Microphone On” to include audio in your recording.
– You can also select whether you want to record your screen in high quality or standard quality. High quality records at a higher resolution, but the file size will be larger.

3. After you’ve made your desired settings, you will see a three-second countdown. During this time, you can navigate to the screen or app you want to record.
4. Once the countdown finishes, the status bar at the top of your screen will turn red, indicating that the recording is in progress.
5. Simply use your iPhone as you normally would and everything on your screen will be recorded, including any sound if you opted for it.
6. To stop the screen recording, you can either swipe up from the bottom (or down from the top) of your screen to access the Control Center and tap on the red recording indicator, or you can tap on the red status bar at the top of your screen and then tap “Stop” in the prompt that appears.

After you stop the recording, it will be saved to your Photos app. From there, you can edit, share, or delete the recording as needed.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you successfully screen record on your iPhone.
