How to record from the screen? Instructions for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch
1. Launch the QuickTime Player application, which comes standard with OS X.
2. We connect the iDevice via the Lightning wire to the computer. As I understand it, iPad 1,2,3 with the old connector in the span
3. In QuickTime Player, select File-New Record from the menu.
Attention! Follow steps 1, 2 and 3 in that order. If you do the opposite, then for some reason it does not always work.
4. In the player’s control panel, click on the small checkmark to the right of the record button.
In the drop-down menu, select your device in the Camera and Microphone sections. In the Quality section you can change the quality of the recording. If you set the Maximum, then everything will be absolutely superb, but the size of what was received can go off scale (I managed to write down 1 minute for 200 megabytes). Decide the quality for yourself, experiment.
5. We press the record button. Quicktime Player will show in real time the size of the recording.
6. After stopping the recording, go to the File-Save menu. We save the received to the hard disk. Or by means of QuickTime Player we share the received.
For example, directly from the player you can upload to Youtube:
Pros and cons
The described method is convenient in that the recording takes place via a wire, and not Wi-Fi, therefore there are much less glitches. I did not find out of sync in the tests. The downside is that so far, the sound during recording is not played either on the iPad or on the computer, although then there is sound during playback.
It remains to wait for the fall and the official release of OS X and iOS 8, and then use your health!
Ipad screen recording. On iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 Yosemite
Ios 8 introduces one useful and poorly advertised feature that only works in conjunction with the new OS X 10.10 Yosemite. We are talking about recording from the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch using the operating system. Before that, in order to record from the screen, you had to use third-party tools. For example, many on our site are recorded using the Reflector application.
Reflector works over Wi-Fi and uses AirPlay technology. I wrote about this in detail in a separate instruction article. Reflector has several drawbacks when compared to the method described below:
- The Air Play icon does not always appear on iPad. I am a shaman in such cases: I restart Wi-Fi, change the quality, etc.
- Reflector costs 13. So you need to either buy or use a pirated version, which is periodically buggy
- Since Reflector uses Wi-Fi, the program records with errors on colorful applications: for example, out of sync and sound is a common thing for Reflector.
With the advent of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, the headaches for me (and for everyone who is going to record a stream from the screen) should be reduced. I will give instructions on how to do this, so that readers have an idea of the innovation.
How to Record from iPhone or iPad Screen without Jailbreak
Two proven ways to grip without the hassle.
How to record from iPhone or iPad screen using iOS
Starting with iOS 11, a capture function appeared in the Apple mobile OS, which allows you to capture everything that happens on the iPhone or iPad screen, and then save the file to the gallery. Here’s what you need to do.
Open Settings, go to Control Center, and click Customize Controls. Find the Screen Recording item in the list and tap the green plus sign next to it. If this item is already in the upper Include list, go to the next step.

Click the Screen Recorder icon in the bottom row or hold your finger on it to open an additional menu where you can turn on the microphone.
Three seconds after the countdown, recording will begin, and the status bar or area with the clock will turn red.
To end the recording, click on the status bar or clock area, or on the button in the Control Center. After a couple of seconds, the saved file will appear in the gallery. There it can be edited, uploaded to the cloud or sent via the Share menu.
How to Record iPhone or iPad Screen via QuickTime on macOS
If you wish, you can also record the screen using a Mac. In this case, earlier versions of iOS will do as well. In addition, the status bar will not turn red, and the time and network indicators on it will be like in all Apple presentations and advertisements. To record iPhone or iPad screen via QuickTime on Mac, do the following.
Connect your iOS device to your Mac using a cable. Launch QuickTime and select the File menu → New entry.
In the window that opens, click on the arrow next to the record button and specify the iPhone as the camera. Here you can select the sound source and quality.

The first method will require you to Jailbreak your iPhone, iPad. Over, you will have to get a male-to-male mini-jack 3.5 cable to record sound from the line-in. It just so happens that the best recording software right on the device itself. Display Recorder was unable to overcome the system limitations of iOS, and therefore had to use invasive methods. To do this, you just need to insert the above cable with one end into the audio output of the device, and the other into the line input of your sound card. You can record sound while taking off with both a paid SoundForge and worthless Audacity.

Iphone, iPad screen recording using RecordMyScreen [Jailbreak]
By the way, there is a method for recording the sound of the system, but it looks rather strange, and is important only for those who actually do everything on their tablet. If you really want to get an extra brain tumor and a hole in your wallet. Buy a device called an external audio interface for iPhone, iPad (originally created for guitars and GarageBand and are nothing more than the same notorious line-in on your PC sound card).

Repeat the trick with the dad-dad cable and record the sound with the app from the App Store that came with the purchased device (if it supports recording in the background).

The most orthodox method and at the same time the highest quality and most expensive. It requires the most connections. To do this, we’ll need an Apple TV connected via HDMI to your TV and a capture device. This is the same method that was used before emulating AirPlay on a PC, because it’s no secret to anyone that apple technology communicates best with each other. After that, the resulting huge size, but alas not native resolution, will be on your PC.

Which iPhones have built-in screen recording
You do not need to install third-party applications for this, because the built-in ability to record what is happening on the iPhone screen appeared with the release of iOS 11. The function is out of sight, so it’s not surprising that not everyone knows about it.
The following Apple device models are capable of recording:
- Iphones from iPhone 5s and older: SE / 6 / 6s / 7/8 / X / Xr / Xs / 11 and so on, including all Plus and Max versions. And of course the new 2nd generation iPhone SE.

Which iPhones have built-in screen recording
- How to Capture Screen on iPhone and iPad
- Iphone Screen Recorder with Sound
- Using QuickTime
- Hdmi cable and adapter
- Reflector for Mac and Windows
Quicktime Player is a standard macOS player that is built into the system and can record images from a connected iPhone or Mac screen.
First of all, let’s figure out on what equipment it will work and on what not. Your iPhone must be updated to iOS 8 and have a Lightning connector, which is available in phones from iPhone 5 and later, and tablets from iPad 4 and later. From this it follows that iPhone 4S and iPad 3 do not support this option.
You will also need a computer with macOS at least Yosemite (version 10.10) and a Lightning cable (included in the box with the iPhone).
Connect your smartphone to your Mac with a cable and launch QuickTime. From the top menu select File → New entry.
By default, a window will open showing the built-in camera. At this stage, the player will request access to Mac cameras and microphones, it must be allowed otherwise and the sound from Athos will not be displayed.
Click on the small down arrow to the right of the round red record button.
From the drop-down list in the field you need a camera and a microphone of your device. You can also choose the quality here. Be careful with this parameter, as the size of the resulting file can grow a lot.
An exact snapshot of the image from your iPhone appears on the Mac screen. To start recording, click on the red round button (click on it to stop).
Automatic saving is not provided here. Therefore, after you finish recording the iPhone screen, do not forget to select File from the top menu → Save.
How to capture from the screen using a computer program
For Windows, several programs have been developed with which you can capture from the iPhone screen. They are paid, but trials are available with some restrictions. For example, Wondershare iOS Screen Recorder displays the program logo over the recording. The LonelyScreen AirPlay Receiver utility is also paid, but in the trial version there is no cut in functionality and overlay of a watermark, so we recommend using it.
Go to the official website and click on the Download for Windows button. Download the installation file and then install the program. When you run the utility for the first time, the Windows Firewall window will appear, allow LonelyScreen to communicate in private and, if necessary, in public networks.
Connect your computer and iPhone to the same network. On your smartphone, open Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of the display (on bezel-less iPhones, swipe down from the top-right edge). Click on the Screen Repeat (AirPlay Repeat in iOS 10 and below) button and select LonelyScreen.
The image from the iPhone screen will be broadcast in the program window on the computer. To start recording, open the options panel and click on the red Start recording button.
To stop recording, in the LonelyScreen window, click on the Stop recording button. Or, in Control Center on iPhone, select Screen Repeat and click Stop Replay.
To view your footage, click on the green Play button. To go to the location of the file, click on the folder icon. By default, entries are stored in the This PC directory →.
