How to Screen Record on your iPhone


Mobile phones. You can do just as much on your phone as you can with a computer. But sometimes when technology makes these advances and we have new smartphones constantly being rolled out, some of the simpler features tend to go unexplained, or become harder to locate. At Reward Mobile we’ve created our Ultimate Guide to the iPhone. Today, our topic is Screen Recording. 

The name of the Screen Recorder is a very handy label – it does exactly what it says on the tin. You activate it, and while it’s on, anything that happens on-screen will be saved as a video to your phone. It isn’t the defining feature of the smartphone, but still a handy one to have available. 


Saving your favourite videos. Millions upon millions of people use the internet to watch things. Whether that’s on YouTube, TikTok, Instagram or anywhere else. However not many places give you the option to save their video content. With Screen Recorder, you can do so without any issue. 

Maybe you do not want to save the occasional TikTok video, maybe you want to record business calls. Recording a video/conference call. This one can be important, especially if you use your mobile for work related things. Not everyone can take all the notes they are going to need over the course of a video conference, especially with lots of people talking. By using the Screen Recorder, you can watch it back to continue making notes later or refer to the points in the video. 

If you do not need to save any TikToks, and you do not need to save your video conference, what about giving someone a video guide? A bit more niche, but if someone you know is not sure how to change the settings in something, how to solve a puzzle in one of their games, or even if you just want to get proof of an issue on your end to show to technical support, Screen Recorder is a reliable, built-in option that will meet your needs.
