How to record your screen on video on iPad and iPhone?
Both device types from Apple support screen recording, but you will have to add the screen recorder function to your Control Center first. You can do that by going into Settings > Control Center > More Controls > + Screen Recording. Now you can launch the Screen Recording from the Control Center which is accessible with a brief swipe from the top of your screen.
The screen recordings will include feed from your microphone so you will be able to have your voice in the background along with any sounds produced by the device. The files recorded from your screen are saved to the built-in memory, but you can later move them to a memory card if necessary. Please, note that you cannot record protected content like videos on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, as well as the content of protected folders.
