If you want to capture video of your iPhone or iPad screen, you don’t even need to download an app to complete the task. The ability to record activity on your screen is built into iOS and iPadOS through a feature called screen recording.

With this tool, you can start a recording of your screen and then take individual screenshots from the video. This makes capturing your iPhone or iPad screen activity much easier than going through a third-party app. Here’s how to set up and use the built-in screen recording tool.

Before you can use the screen recording feature, you must first add it to Control Panel. On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > Control Center and make sure the option Access in applications is on. In the More commands section, tap Screen recording to add it to the Included Commands section, which appears in the Control Center.

Now switch to the screen you want to save. Swipe to open Control Center and tap on Flyer Screen recording button. You will then see a countdown, after which the recording will begin.

Do you also want to record audio? Maybe you tell what you see when the iPhone or iPad records the screen. Long press the record button in control center and tap the Microphone button that appears to mute or unmute your video.

By default, recordings are saved to your Photos library, but you can choose a different destination from the list provided when you long-press the save button. Faucet Start recording from this window to start the countdown. A red icon with a timer will appear at the top of your screen.

When you’re done with your video, there’s no need to return to the Control Center. Tap the red icon at the top of the screen and tap Stop when asked if you want to stop screen recording. A notification will appear indicating that the recorded video has been saved to the device.

You can also use the screen recording tool to take screenshots of any previously recorded activity. This trick can be useful if you are having trouble taking screenshots of a specific activity. After recording your video, play back the frames you recorded and pause at the right time.

Take a screenshot on your device by pressing the appropriate keys to take a static screenshot (side button + volume up button on an iPhone or iPad Pro without a home button; power button + home button on devices with a home button).

Your recordings and screenshots will be saved to your Photos library by default. From the app, you can tap on a recording and tap To play to see him. From here, you can also browse the video, mute it, share it, or delete it.
