View Your iOS Screen On Your Mac

In addition to being able to record your iOS screen using your Mac, you can use QuickTime Player to simply view it live. Just connect your device with a cable, run QuickTime Player and choose File, New Movie Recording. Then choose your iOS device from the pull-down menu next to the record button. Even if you never hit the record button, you can see your iOS screen on your Mac. Could come in useful in situations where you want to see the contents of your screen in a larger format.

    I don't get the option for anything other than "built in isight" in the drop down menu. MBP OSX 10.10.1 and iphone 4s iOS 8.1.2

      It is possible that it doesn't work with the iPhone 4s.

    Gary, what kind of cable are we talking about?

      The USB Lightning cable that comes with your iOS device. The one you use to sync/transfer between your Mac and iOS device.

    I follow the directions just like u wrote them. There's no window for clicking on the iPhone to show on my MacBkPro, using an iPhone Plus 6.
    I'm running QT 10.4 and QT 7.6.6. and yes it is hook up with the cable.😡But wait, I found that too small to see v next to the record in QT 10 and it worked. Not able to have sound playing, no matter what I did. I had it running on the Mac and the Apple TV at the same time. How can I record sound.😃
