How to screen recording on iPhone 12

Maybe you’re miles away from someone and want to show off a few things on your phone and how it works, as well as how to do it. It gets frustrating to be on call and explain every detail step of what step to follow to go where in an application. There is a fairly simple solution for this. You can record your screen and send it to the person you want to show it to. Apple came up with this built-in feature for us so that we don’t have to download third-party applications to screen on our device.

You can record whatever is on your screen, but there is a certain limitation of recording on your iPhone 12. You cannot record streaming apps like Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime and other streaming platforms. You can record the games you play with audio recording. You can even record phone calls and notifications. So if you want to record from any app, make sure you have Do Not Disturb mode turned on so your calls and notifications don’t get stuck on your screen.
