October 22, 2014 | By More

This has been documented all over the internet and this is yet another post on the subject. But this is such a neat trick I wanted to post to my own site, more as a place for me to find it later than to have to search. Yes, I’m getting on in years and my memory isn’t as sharp as it used to be. Thats my excuse and I’ll be sticking to it.

So here is how to record you iOS device’s screen in as few-a-steps as possible. 

Connect you device to you Desktop or laptop with a lightening cable

Open quicktime player: Press command+space and type Quicktime and then press Enter/Return

With Quicktime open press Command+Option+N. A window will open with your isight camera view, most likely of yourself.

To the right of the red record button there is an inverted triangle. Click this and you will see your iOS device listed.

Select your iOS device and a new window will open with your iOS devices screen in it.

To record your screen move the mouse pointer in to the iOS Devices screen and that red record button will reappear. Click it to start recording.

Six simple steps to record your iOS Devices screen. This is a great way to record demo’s of your iPhone or iPad’s screen. Great for the use in presentations etc.
