iOS 11 is finally available for everyone, and it promises a new look not only for our iPhones, but a whole bunch of new features. One of those is Screen Recording, where you can record a video of what you’re doing onscreen. You can even narrate it, too.
Here’s how to record your screen with iOS 11:.
1. Add the feature to Control Center by going to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls, then tap the green button next to Screen Recording.
2. To start a recording, pull up your Control Center by swiping upwards from the bottom of your screen. Once you’ve added it, the Screen Recording button will be in the bottom left corner.
3. When you start a recording, you’ll see an option beneath the Start Recording button to turn Microphone Audio on or off. Tap the button to turn audio on before you start recording.
4. The microphone button will turn red when you record, indicating that audio is being captured. To end your video, press — you guessed it — Stop Recording.
5. Screen recordings get saved on your Camera Roll, like everything else. Head to the Photos app to view and trim your recording. One thing the screen recording does is put a red strip in the status bar at the top of your screen, which is unavoidable since it serves to remind you the screen recording is active. If you want to remove it, though, there are a few video cropping apps you can use, just be warned you’ll also lose the status bar.
6. Text, email, or Tweet your recording from your Camera Roll the same way you would a regular video. You can now brag to your friends about your iPhone prowess, and you’ll have a recording to prove it.
