You can download the trial version of the application on the official website of the developer. However, now it has rather strict restrictions. In particular, the trial version will work only for seven days, and when recording a, a large “watermark” Reflector will be located in the center of the screen. You can remove restrictions by purchasing the full version of the application for 15.
Iphone and iPad Screen Recording
Reading time: 6 minutes
Not all iOS device owners need to create their own screencasts, or, more simply, record from the iPhone screen. However, sometimes such a need may arise. For example, when creating short informations, recording overviews, etc. In this article, we will look at several methods of recording screencasts from iPhone.
A few years ago, the process of recording what was happening on the screen of an apple gadget was quite complicated. Users had to either jailbreak or install a number of third-party applications. Now the situation has changed somewhat.
For Mac owners
After the release of OS X Yosemite, owners of apple computers have the opportunity to remove from the iPhone screen without resorting to third-party applications. To record you need:
1. Connect your mobile device to Mac using the supplied cable.
2. Launch QuickTime application.
3. From the File menu, select New Record.
4. In the window that opens at the bottom, press the button (checkmark) located to the right of the start recording button.
5. In the drop-down list that opens, select iPhone as the camera. Also, users can select the sound source. Oem Mac microphone, audio from a mobile device, or a third-party source.
6. Click on the record button.
A distinctive feature of this method is a stable connection between the i-device and the computer, due to which there will be no noticeable freezes. However, this method is only suitable for owners of apple computers with OS X Yosemite (and higher). You will also need an iPhone running iOS 8 to record.
For those with iOS 11
Starting with iOS 11, all Apple devices have a very entertaining option. The ability to remove from the iPhone screen. Many people will never use it, and some people, for example, those who records about games for YouTube, this function is simply necessary. Previously, you had to look for third-party software in the AppStore, but now Apple developers have saved users from this need.
So how do you start recording your iPhone or iPad screen? To do this, you must first bring the application widget to the control panel. To do this, go to the settings, scroll through the menu to the line “Control Center”.
Then click on “Set up ale. Management “.
Here you are required to click on the green plus sign opposite the item “Screen Recording”.

To just start shooting, click on it. After 3 seconds, everything that happens on the monitor will be recorded. If you hold down the widget for a short while, additional settings will open where you can turn off the microphone.
Clicking the icon again will stop shooting. The file can be found in the folder “”.
Method 4: iTools program
In the absence of a connection to a wireless network, owners of computers based on the Windows operating system can use the third method. In this case, you need iPhone, cable and iTools app.
Itools is a fairly popular utility from Asian developers. The application is an alternative to Apple’s iTunes media combine. But unlike the program from Apple, iTools has wider functionality. For example, it allows you to record screencasts from iPhone and iPad.
For this you need:
1. Download and install the iTools app.
2. Connect iPhone to computer using the supplied cable.
3. In the main application window go to the Toolbox tab.
4. Select the Real-Time Desktop item.
5. In the window that opens, press the Record button.
6. Select recording parameters (quality and folder where the recording will be saved).
However, it is worth noting that in the case of screencast recording using iTools, it is better to refuse to shoot games or quickly move between windows in applications. The utility simply does not keep pace with the animation on the iPhone screen, which is why slowdowns will be noticeable in the final, and some frames may “drop out” completely.
From a laptop or Windows computer
How to record from an iPhone with an earlier OS? For this we will use a computer or laptop. Any modern Windows will do: 7, 8, 8.1 or 10. To connect, we need a router. You need two devices to be connected to the same local network. For example, a computer can be connected to a router via a cable, and an iPhone or iPad via Wi-Fi. Once again, I repeat that they must be connected to the same Internet center.
We will use screen recording from a reception or broadcast using AirPlay technology. To do this, download the LonelyScreen program from the official website. The program is paid, but it is possible to use the “Free Trial” version. Download and install on your computer.
Run the program on the computer.
Check again that the iPhone is connected to the same WiFi network. Next, call the “curtain” and select “Screen repeat”.
The list will only show our program running on the computer.
Now you will see on the monitor the same screen that is displayed on the smartphone.

Exit the settings to the desktop and open the additional “Shutter” menu. Next, you should see an additional icon, which allows you to capture a screen or record. Click on it. After that, recording will begin without sound. To change the settings and turn on sound recording, you need to hold down this button for a few seconds until an additional menu pops up.
