Instead of taking a static image of your iPhone 13’s display, you should use a screen recording video to capture what’s happening on the screen. Lucky for you, there’s a quick shortcut in your iPhone 13’s Control Center for doing just that, regardless of whether you have the normal, Mini, Pro, or Pro Max model. See below for instructions on how to make use of it.
The Definition of Screen Capture
One way to visualize a screen recording is as a moving screenshot: It records everything on your screen as it appears normally. However, rather than a static image, a video clip will be added to your collection of stored media. Recording your screen is useful for documenting software defects, creating how-to films, and other purposes. Remember that screen recording is not possible while mirroring an iPhone’s screen to another monitor. Otherwise, all notifications and other screen content will be recorded.
Turn on Record Screen Before Attempting Anything Else
- An iPhone 13’s “Screen Recording” button in Control Center is turned off by default, so you’ll have to enable it if you want to record your screen. (Control Center, the panel of quick-access controls, is accessed by swiping down from the top right corner of the screen.)
- Start the Settings programme before activating the Screen Recording button.
- Click “Control Center” at the top of Settings.
- To activate screen recording, go to the Control Center’s settings and scroll down to the bottom (with the plus symbol beside it). By doing so, it will be transferred from the list of “More Controls” to the list of “Included Controls,” and consequently, Control Center will display it.
- Also, by tapping and dragging the items in the “Included Controls” list, you can change the order of your Control Center shortcut buttons. Turn off the Settings menu when you’re done. Start a screen recording right now.
Tutorial: Step-by-Step iPhone Screen Recording 13
Following the steps above, you can now record your screen whenever you like by clicking the Screen Recording icon in Control Center. Your iPhone’s Control Center can be accessed by swiping down from the top right corner of the screen.
The Screen Recording button (a circle within another circle) may be found in the lower-right corner of Control Center, below the other shortcuts (such as Flashlight or Calculator, for example).
You can record your screen once by tapping the Screen Recording icon. However, by pressing and holding the Screen Recording button, you may record audio from your iPhone’s microphone at the same time as the screen capture.
If this is your first time pressing the button, you can move on. On the other hand, if you hold down the Screen Recording button, a contextual menu will appear. Tapping the microphone symbol until it turns red and “Microphone On” appears beneath it will begin recording audio from the device’s microphone. You should then select the recording’s beginning by clicking the corresponding button.
Your iPhone’s screen recording will start after 3 seconds (and your microphone audio as well, if you enabled that option). During a recording session, you’ll see the Screen Recording icon in Control Center and the time in the top left corner of the screen glow red.
The screen recording can be stopped by tapping the red clock in the top left corner of the screen and choosing “Stop” from the menu that appears.
