Since iOS 11, Apple has provided a built-in screen recorder that can be useful for you, in a couple of ways:

  1. The new screen capture feature can be used to record walkthroughs and guides of your app. What’s really useful is that you can even edit and trim the video directly on your device using iMovie.

  2. This will help if you need to troubleshoot your app since you can record exactly how and what is happening on your device 

How to enable screen recording in iOS:

  1. Go into your Settings

  2. Find Control Center,  and tap on Customise Controls

  3. Scroll down until you see Screen Recording. Tap to add this option to your control centre

Then close the settings.

How to record a screen:

  1. Swipe down from the upper right of the screen to display the Control centre

  2. Tap on the Screen recording button

  3. There will be a quick countdown and once the recording starts you’ll see a red bar at the top of your screen.

  4. To stop your recording, tap on the red bar at the top of the screen

  5. The video will be saved in your Photos
