In this video I will show you how to record your iPhone screen on a Mac or PC. I’ll start off with the Mac method first because they built this function right into Mac OS X Yosemite. With Yosemite you can do this for free so first thing you need to do is plug your iPhone up to your Mac using the USB cable. Wait for it to show up in iTunes and then leave it connected and while it’s still connected open up QuickTime Player. Then in QuickTime go up to File “New Movie Recording” and then just click the arrow next to the record button and choose iPhone on that drop down list. Choose your iPhone and then you may need to unlock your iPhone.
Once you unlock your iPhone you will see your iPhone screen is now on your Mac desktop and it’s mirroring. It’s showing you everything that you’re doing on your iPhone. So to make a recording of the iPhone you just click on the record button in QuickTime and then do whatever you need to do on your iPhone. Record what you need to do and it’s going to capture it and then once you’re done just hit the record button again to stop the recording. Then save it. You can either go to “File”, “Save” and choose to save that recorded video on your Mac computer somewhere. So here’s an example. This is my video that I just did. It’s me just browsing around I just want to show you that it does capture everything you do on your iPhone so it will capture everything you do in that recording in that recorded video. So that’s a cool feature that they built into Mac OS X Yosemite.
If you’re on a Windows PC you’ll need an app called Reflector. This is the best one that there is. It’s the one I used before Mac OS X Yosemite came out, and it’s like $13. It’s very affordable and plus it does it over WiFi connection so you don’t even need to plug it up to your computer. It does it though AirPlay wirelessly. You can record your iPhone screen that way and that’s the one I recommend for Windows users. So there you go. Simple as that. That’s how you record your iPhone screen.
