I’ve been asked a lot of times on Twitter how I was able to hide my iPhone’s carrier name on iOS. There really is no trick involved, I was simply using my Mac’s iPhone screen recording feature. Indeed, macOS has the ability to capture real-time video of your iPhone or iPad’s screen out of the box. This feat is accomplished by a new option in the QuickTime app.
Using the screen record option in the QuickTime app results in a uniformed status bar on the iPhone. It hides the carrier name, and sets the time to 9:41 for a clean looking status bar while recording. Of course, this change isn’t permanent, as some might at first assume, but it’s a great way to capture clean looking video of your iPhone or iPad.
In this guide, I will show you how to record a video of your iPhone screen. Note that this works the same to record the screen of your iPad.
