You can also use screen recording to create tutorials or walkthroughs for apps, which can be helpful for others who are new to using the app.

Tips for recording your screen
While screen recording is a useful feature, there are some things to keep in mind to ensure that your recordings turn out well. Here are some tips:
- Make sure your phone is fully charged before you start recording. Screen recording can use a lot of battery, so you don’t want your phone to die in the middle of a recording.
- Clear any notifications or messages from your screen before you start recording. You don’t want them to appear in the recording and distract from the content.
- Use headphones with a microphone if possible. This will help ensure that your voice is clear in the recording.
- Record in a quiet location. Background noise can be distracting in a recording.
Editing your screen recording
After you’ve recorded your screen, you can edit the video to trim the beginning or end, or add text or other effects. Here’s how:
- Open the Photos app on your iPhone.
- Find the screen recording you want to edit.
- Tap on the video to open it.
- Tap on the Edit button.
- Use the sliders to trim the beginning or end of the video.
- Tap on the Text button to add text to the video.
- Use the other buttons to add other effects, such as filters or music.
