How to record the screen of your iPhone or iPad
by Peter Kostadinov / Feb 08, 2019, 8:46 AM
Ever since iOS 11 came out in 2017, iOS has allowed users to easily record their screens and create useful, native video recordings that can be used as comprehensive guides for your not so tech-savvy friends or family. You can even capture your epic gaming achievements on video!
Who knew that recording your screen could be so easy! Here's what you need to do:
Flick open the Control Center up and simply tap the new Record toggle that should be positioned at the bottommost layer. From now on, your screen will be recorded.
A popup message will appear, asking you if you're sure that you want to stop recording. The recorded video will be saved as a 45fps MP4 file with a resolution of 900 by 1600 pixels and will be available for you to share as you please.
Cue the "Android has had this for years"

Actually I hate that Sony has it even before it became native to Android and recently drop the feature entirely... Now I need a third party app for that... So kudos to iOS to embed it in the control center, it's both practical and easy to use

This is awesome! Great find. Currently, I'm using a desktop app call Acethinker iPhone screen recorder that mirrors my iPhone screen to the computer and use its screen recording function to make videos. It's not that direct, but it works. Now I can do that on straight on iPhone, cool.

Kudos to Apple for having this natively. I downloaded a good one on my Note 9, but Samsung should have this, other than for gaming.
