Recording on iOS used to be a pretty big deal in the past. Well thanks to iOS 12, it’s now easier than ever to record your screen not only on your iPhone but also on your iPad and iPod Touch as well.
Once you’ve started recording, you can do pretty much anything you’d normally do, except this time, all of this is being recorded and after you end your recording, you’ll get a video which you can share anywhere.
The recording makes it an easy task for you, if you are playing a game and want to showcase your skills, or you’ve got a problem and want to capture the screen for debugging.
Using Screen Recording on iOS 12
Make sure you’re on the latest version of iOS. It’s iOS 12 right now. To start recording on your iPhone, you first have to turn on Screen Recording and bring it to the Control Center. To do so, follow these simple steps –
- Go to Settings, scroll down a bit and then tap on “Control Center”. After that, click on “Customize Controls”.
