Where are my iOS screen recordings

Record the screen of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

In iOS 11 or later and iPadOS, you can take a screen capture and record sound on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Here's how to take a screen capture

  1. On iOS 14 or later, go to Settings> Control Center, tap More Controls (or Customize Controls if you have iOS 13 or earlier), then tap the Add button next to "Screen Capture".
  2. Open Control Center on the iPhone or iPod touch, or on the iPad.
  3. Hold the gray record button then tap Microphone.
  4. Tap Start Recording and wait for the three-second countdown.
  5. Open Control Center on your iPhone or iPod touch, or on your iPad, then tap the red record button. Or tap the red status bar at the top of the screen and then tap "Stop".

Open the Photos app and select your screen capture.

Audio recordings are not possible with some apps. Screen recording and synchronization cannot be used at the same time.
