This will have enabled the screen recording option in the Control Center. Note that this way you can record iPhone or iPad screens with the internal sounds only. This means that your iOS device will only record the audio generated by the device (if at all) and not the externally received sound. 

Also, the above-mentioned method doesn’t work with iOS 10 or older versions.

Record iPhones and iPads Screens With Audio

If you wish to record iPhone screens with the audio or any other external voice/sounds, there is a way to do that too. There are a few key points that you should remember while recording the screen and they are as follows:

  • To record your voice as well as the system sound, turn on the microphone
  • If you only wish to record in-app sound and not external sound, turn off the microphone, but the iPhone’s ringer must be turned on.
  • If you wish to record a video with no sound at all (neither external nor internal), keep the microphone and the ringer turned off.

To turn the mic of your device on and off for the screen recording, follow these instructions:

  1. Open Settings on your device.
  2. Search for Privacy and tap on it.
  3. Select Microphone.
  4. You’ll see a list of applications installed on your device. To grant permission to use the microphone, you must toggle on the app you wish to use for screen recording.
