Previous Considerations

Screen recording has been possible on iOS since the introduction of iOS 8. Back in 2013, Elvin Duran wrote an great article that explained how to add the screen record option to the Control Center of your iPhone or iPad. In his article, he used a jailbroken device for the demonstration which meant you were required to jailbreak your iPhone in order to follow the steps. It also meant that not all iPhones/iPads supported screen recording (those running operating systems below 8).


Screen recording on an iPhone 12 is a great way to record your screen. It comes in handy when you need to capture what’s on the screen. Maybe you’re trying to learn a new app or show someone how to do something from your phone. The one drawback is if the mic you use with your iPhone has some background noise it’ll also appear in your footage.

Screen Recording on an iPhone is a great feature that allows you to quickly record any app or game. You can record anything you see on your screen, whether it’s typing out an important email, showing teammates how to do something, or figuring out what went wrong.

In addition to recording your screen, third-party apps enable you to capture your device’s live audio, take still images from your video, and even save multiple video clips to different video formats.

Screen recordings are saved as .mov files that are saved into your Camera Roll and can be shared via Air Drop, Messages app, and also sent from iMessage and WhatsApp. The screen recording feature is so powerful that it isn’t available to everyone at once. It is only available after you get past the lock screen on the iPhone with Touch ID (or Face ID).

From streaming gameplay to recording a photo booth photo or video to showing friend’s how to use a new app, there are many different reasons you might want to record video from your iPhone. Recording your screen will allow you to show your audience what’s going on during a task whether it’s a walkthrough of a set of tasks or showing off a cool feature. In iOS 14, Apple finally added this feature into Control Center allowing you to quickly access it from anywhere within iOS.
