Recording the Screen On Your iPhone Or iPad

You can record the screen of your device using iOS 11 to create a video. Previously you could only do this by connecting your iPhone or iPad to a Mac. This can be handy for capturing epic gameplay or simply documenting a problem in an app. The video is saved to your Photos library.

    Well, put the button in control center, but it remained greyed out. Snooped a little and found 'Screen Recording' off in Settings/General/Restrictions. Don't know if it was off by default, or if I shut it off sometime in the past. Hope it helps, cool videos, Thanks!

    You didn't say but it doesn't record audio as well which makes it less useful as a help to others?

    This is great. Is there a way to capture sound, too, when recording?

    Dan: Force-click the record button and you can select on/off for the mic.
