How To Use iOS 11 Screen Recording Feature On iPhone And iPad

Updated on

We are on the eve of the release of iOS 11. Of course, a lot of you have probably already been experiencing iOS 11 for some time through their beta program. If that describes you then you have likely already installed the iOS 11 Golden Master release and checked out our top iOS 11 tips and tricks. This article might be old news to some of you iOS 11 pros but the folks who have waited for the full public release of iOS 11 have yet to experience the best new iOS 11 features.

One of those great new features is built-in iOS 11 screen recording. Having this feature built right into iOS 11 is a pretty big step forward for anyone who may need to record their actions and share them with others. For example, if you find yourself playing tech support for your family, it would be much easier to record your screen and send out a video about how to do something than explain it over the phone or via iMessage. The possibilities are endless. Best of all, Apple has made iOS 11 screen recording very easy to use on your compatible iOS device.

Basically, what you want to do is add the iOS 11 screen recording toggle to your Control Center. Oh yeah, Control Center is customizable in iOS 11 in case you missed that news. Here’s how to add the screen recording toggle to Control Center:

  1. Open your “Settings” app.
  2. Look for the “Control Center” option and tap it. If you don’t want to scroll through the options and look for it, just search for “Control Center” using the search bar at the top of your display.
  3. Now tap “Customize Controls.”
  4. Here, you will see all of the various features and toggles you can add or remove from Control Center. You have full control! Look for “Screen Recording” and tap the green plus icon beside it.
  5. You’re done!

Now, when you open Control Center (swipe up from the bottom of the display) you will see the built-in iOS 11 screen recording as an option alongside everything else you have added to Control Center. This makes toggling screen recording very easy and super fast. Now that you have added screen recording, take a look through the other toggles that can be added to Control Center and customize it to make it work perfectly for you.

That’s just one cool feature in iOS 11 that a lot of people will find very useful. The new version of iOS is ready to be pushed to the public and I think a lot of iOS users are about to be pleasantly surprised with the new features that Apple has packed in. Are you excited for iOS 11 or are you Android until you die?
