iPhone screen recording

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.


Snapchat recording just got easier :eyes: :joy_cat:


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.

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.

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

I use Vimeo to upload vids

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

Aren’t these supposed to auto close if no replies in the last 6 months @Coral-Crew, this has been 2 years

That’s only more recent posts that have it enabled, from the looks of it. This one will close in 6 months time if no one else replies.

There should be a forum badge for such outstanding entries to the forum. They seem to be increasing too.


Also, if their first ever comment is flagged all subsequent ones should require manual approval until their account is reviewed.

A lot of people (or should I say bots) recently have been jumping on and spamming comments throughout several topics and then leaving. We all know everyone clicks the ‘view ignored content’ link to have a nosey so flagging doesn’t really do much - they still get their message across.

It would stop people who sign up to troll too.

Maybe if the comment gets flagged, lets say 10 times, it should be automatically deleted?
