iOS 11 Screen Recording demo on iPhone.

For sure one of the greatest add-ons of the 11th iOS iteration is the Screen Recording feature. Until now iPhone and iPad power users had to jailbreak their devices in order to be able to unlock this option. Third party screen recorders available on the App Store failed to made the cut, or have always been pulled out within hours after launching, because they broke Apple’s guidelines.

Happily the long waiting is over and you can be one swipe away from the Screen Recording button. You only have to enable the feature within the redesigned iOS 11 Control Center. The Record button will be displayed along the other switches and a single tap is enough to start capturing the events occurring on your iPhone’s or iPad’s screen. Tap again when you want to stop and the video is saved and available in the stock Photos app!
