Screen Recording

This tweak adds a screen recording length indicator to the Status Bar

Whenever you initiate a screen recording on a notched iPhone, a red pill-shaped indicator appears over the Status Bar’s time display. This is useful for reminding you that your display is recording so you remember to stop it at some point, but iOS developer h4ckua11 had another idea for improving the screen recording indicator that would go on to become a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed ScreenRecording Time.

As shown in the screenshot example above, ScreenRecording Time merely replaces the current time display in the red pill-shaped screen recording indicator with a timer denoting the length of time that the screen recording has been in effect. In other words, it reminds you of how long your screen recording is before you end it.

This tweak auto-enables Do Not Disturb when recording your iPhone’s screen

It’s a wonderful thing that Apple finally came to and brought native screen recording capabilities to the iOS platform. In fact, I still remember the not-too-distant past when you would’ve needed a jailbreak tweak or a disgraced App Store app to make this happen.

But as great as iOS’ native screen recording function is, there’s one significant caveat that bugs me, and a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed DNDMyRecording by iOS developer gilshahar7 addresses it.

RecordAnywhere allows screen recordings even when your iPhone is locked

Screen Recording on iPhone

iOS 11 introduced a new Control Center toggle that could be used to video record your iPhone or iPad’s display on demand. The feature is incredibly useful, but it suffers from one substantial flaw: it doesn’t work when your handset is locked.

Enter RecordAnywhere, a newly-released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Muirey03 that solves this problem at the source.
