Follow these steps to record your iPhone's screen without the Dynamic Island or that red recording indicator in the status bar appearing on the final footage.
Screen recording is a feature that comes standard on iPhones and iPads, but if you fancy more advanced screen recording options, then you’re out of luck unless Apple decides to add them later in a software update.
Apple doesn’t want its users using the native screen recording feature baked into iOS or iPadOS when music is playing in the Apple Music app. Consequently, videos recorded while songs are playing just might capture without any sound.
The iPhone and iPad each come standard with native screen recording capabilities, which is essentially a means of capturing activity on your display for someone else to see on their own device as a video file.
This tutorial shows you the easiest ways to record the entire screen or a selected part of your Mac screen for free, without the need of additional apps.
Certain tidbits of information pertaining to your iPhone or iPad are specifically unique to your device and would therefore be considered particularly sensitive.
Screen recording is a powerful feature that iPhone users once needed to jailbreak to use, but since becoming a native feature in iOS and iPadOS, the tides have turned to jailbreakers enhancing the feature instead of enabling it.
Anyone who finds themselves overwhelmed with the sudden urge to just start annotating things, especially in the middle of a screen recording that you’re capturing for a friend or family member, would be likely to appreciate a newly released and free-to-download jailbreak tweak dubbed Dr4w by iOS developer Sugiuta.
macOS includes basic screen recording features, and you can capture a video of your computer's screen in QuickTime as well. For added functionality, you need a dedicated app. RecordCast is 100% free to use, requires no download and comes with a built-in video editor.
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.
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.
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.
