iPhone screen recording

(Kieran McCann ) #1

Is anyone familiar with how @Naji record his iPhone when he’s making the videos for YouTube?. I’ve been trying to find a way to do this for a while know but we all know Apple won’t allow apps to do this because it’s a privacy issue.

Grab a Mac, plug an iOS device in to it, open QuickTime X, create a new video capture, select the device as the video/audio source and hit record. It’s that easy! :slight_smile:

Just to update, as of iOS 11, you can now record the screen from the device. Add the screen record widget to Control Centre.

It’s almost like they heard my cry for help, thanks for the update Richard. :facepunch:t2:


Now I wonder, does the QuickTime screen recording trigger the screenshot notification on Snapchat? :joy:

No hence why Snapchat is allegedly blocking iOS 11 devices by, it’s happening to me but not all the time.


Damn, @alexs must be worried.

In Android there is an API that apps can call to prevent screen capture - Netflix etc. use it a lot. Does iOS not have similar?


It is now possible to do screen recordings on the iPhone in iOS 11.

Yeah Sky do this


I am able to screen record the Monzo current account app (but discourse does not permit me to upload anything other than an image)

iOS 11 and later has the built-in screen recorder. Or you can mirror and record iPhone on computer
