How to Start Recording

To begin recording your iPhone’s screen, follow these simple steps:

  1. Access Control Center:
    • On iPhones with Face ID, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen.
    • On iPhones without Face ID, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen.
  2. Start Recording: Look for the Screen Recording icon (it resembles a solid circle within a circular outline) and tap it. You’ll see a 3-second countdown, after which the recording will start.

Recording With Sound

If you’re looking to record sound along with your screen recording—perhaps for a tutorial or to capture the audio from a video—you can do so easily. Before starting the recording, press and hold the Screen Recording button in the Control Center. Here, you’ll see the option to turn the microphone on or off. With the microphone enabled, you’ll capture both internal audio and external sounds, such as your voice.

The iOS Screen Recording tool isn’t just for capturing video. It offers several advanced features, including:

  • Live Streaming: By pressing and holding the screen recording icon, you can access options to live stream to various platforms, including Streamlabs for gamers or directly to TikTok and YouTube Live. This feature is perfect for sharing your gaming sessions or creating live content directly from your iPhone.
  • Custom Ringtones: If you’re interested in creating custom ringtones for your iPhone, you can use the screen recording feature to capture audio from videos. For a detailed guide on this process, check out the written guide on my website or the dedicated video on YouTube.

Saving Your Recordings

Once you’ve finished recording, your video will be automatically saved to your Photos library. From there, you can view, edit, or share your recording as you see fit.


It’s important to note that while the screen recording feature is incredibly versatile, certain apps may block the ability to record their content, such as the Disney+ app, for copyright reasons.


Screen recording on the iPhone is a powerful feature that opens up a world of possibilities for content creation, sharing, and personal use. Whether you’re a gamer looking to share your victories, a content creator in need of a quick way to capture and share moments, or just someone looking to make their own ringtones, the ease and accessibility of iOS’s screen recording feature are unmatched.
