Have you ever been in a position where you lost patience while explaining some steps of a tutorial to your friends or family? Well, Apple now has a solution for this. That's right, with iOS 11, you will be able to record your screen natively and share it with your friends, so that they can understand what you're trying to convey, instead of adding confusion by sending them a flurry of screens. While you can record the screen on previous versions of iOS, you need to connect your iPhone or iPad to a Mac or PC. Fortunately, iOS 11 offers a native screen recording solution. So, without further ado, let's take a look at how to record screen in iOS 11:
Enable screen recording in iOS 11
Note : L' I tried on an iPhone 7 Plus and an iPhone 6s with the latest iOS 11 beta 1 for developers, so it should work for you too.
The screen recording function integrated directly into the iOS 11 Control Center. By default, the switch is not displayed and, therefore, you need to add it to the Control Center before you can start using this elegant feature. So, simply follow the steps below to do it:
Go to the app Settings on your iOS device and tap "Control center" . Once you're there, just swipe down a little bit and touch the icon "+" right next to Screen Recording to add it to your Control Center.
Record screen in iOS 11
After enabling screen recording in the Control Center, you can swipe up from the bottom of the iPhone to bring up the Control Center. You will notice that there is a screen recording switch, as shown in the screenshot below. Tap it once, to start recording what you want.
During recording, the screen recording icon will be red and a blue bar will appear at the top of the screen showing the elapsed time. If you want to stop recording, you can tap this blue bar and press "Stop" or touch the switch again.
If you are using an iPhone 6s / 6s Plus or iPhone 7/7 Plus, you can use the 3D Touch function available for the screen recording switch. You can force touch the switch for enable or disable the microphone sound of your device . So if you want to record something with your voice, you can certainly do it.
You can access the recorded video file from the Photos app. In this app, you can also crop unnecessary parts of the recorded video. This is quite important, since every single registration starts with your Control Center.
Easily record the screen in iOS 11 on your iPhone or iPad
Well, once you've added the switch to your Control Center, this will be pretty much the easiest way to record your device's screen. With easy control over the length of the video and microphone audio, the user has complete control over what he is recording. We have been waiting for a long time for Apple to implement this function directly on iOS and it certainly seems that the function is definitely worth the wait.
