How to record video from the screen

There are many ways, including third-party applications or even online services, but few know that some devices have standard solutions for recording video from the screen.


In the Apple gadget you need to go to "Settings", select "Control Point", there click on "Configure ale. controls ”and press the green“ plus ”next to“ Screen Record ”.

In order to activate recording, from any screen you need to swipe from the bottom up (on iPhone X and later gadgets, on iPad with iOS 12 and later - swipe from the upper right of the screen). A button will appear for recording the screen, where you can select the option to record without sound or with the microphone turned on. After clicking “Start Recording” and a 3-second countdown, video creation will begin. You can stop recording by pressing the button in the “Control Center” or by clicking on the red status bar at the top of the screen.

The finished video will be saved in the "Photo" program.

This screen capture method works on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 11 or later.


Almost easier than on the iPhone, the screen recording feature is implemented on Apple computers. It is enough to press the key combination Shift-Command-5, and the regular panel “Screenshot” will open.

In it, you can select the desired item (Screenshot of the entire screen / Screenshot of the window / Screenshot of a part of the screen for screenshots and Recording of the entire screen / Recording of a part of the screen for video), set the delay timer in the Settings section, show or disable the pointer or mouse clicks and determine file save location.

Further, everything is nowhere simpler - the video is recorded by pressing the "Record" button.
