Up until now, we still receive questions from readers asking us how they could record their iPhone screen. One of the reasons being Apple does not allow any type screencast or recording apps on the App Store.
If you are willing to give up some of your free time to try out these remarkable screen recorders below, this functionality will arrive on your iOS device without any problem.
- 1 1. AirShou
- 2 2. QuickTime Player
- 3 3. BB Rec
- 4 4. Display Recorder
- 5 5. Vidyo
The first thing we’re going to talk about are AirShou and Shou. Both of these applications will let you record the screen of your iOS device, and if it happens to be gameplay, you can quickly share it on Shou.TV (similar to YouTube Gaming and Twitch).
In case it’s just an ordinary recording, then you can save it directly to your Camera Roll.
How to Record Your iPhone Screen using AirShou
The AirShou app is now available for download from the iEmulators store.
- Click on this link from your Safari browser
- Scroll down until you see AirShou
- Tap the ‘Install’ button
- Go to Settings > General > Device Management and Trust
Now all you have to do is wait for the app to installed on your home screen. Upon opening, you will see two options: Start Broadcasting and Start Recording.
You know which one you want to choose right? Shou also provide settings such as Format, Orientation, Resolution, and Bitrate. Config it to your liking and tap on Start Recording.
Get out of the app and you should see a red banner on top of the screen. This indicates you’re currently recording your iOS screen. Tap on it to stop at any time.
The Recordings tab from AirShou is the recording viewer. Users also have the ability to Play, Open in, Save To Camera Roll, and Delete from the same tab.
What if AirShou Doesn’t Work or Can’t be Downloaded?
AirShou isn’t the only screen recording app for iOS. If you tried to download AirShou and it shows an error like “Unable to Download” or something like that, it’s time to move on.
Below you will find a list of other screen recorders for iPhone and iPad as well. Check them out and see if they work on your device.
Be sure to let me know how it goes for you.
A few months ago we updated our list of screen recorder tweaks for your iOS device. In it, we decided to include an app called Vidyo as an alternative for those without a jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
Little did you know the app can be downloaded right from the App Store. Sadly, the Apple review team found out and deleted the application.
Although Vidyo didn’t contain any suspicious elements, it violated the company’s Terms of Service. And for that, the app was pulled off the App Store.
How to Install Vidyo Screen Recorder for iOS 10
- Click here to download the .iPA file
- Head over to this article to download Cydia Impactor
- Connect your iPhone or iPad to a computer
- Drag and drop Vidyo IPA to Cydia Impactor
- Enter your Apple ID and password to start installing
You should see a new app icon on your home screen. Before opening it, there is an additional step. Go to Settings > General > Profile(s) > and tap on Vidyo > Trust. Now you can start using Vidyo to record the screen of your iOS 10.
Since this app has a lot of useful functions, I think it will be suitable for many purposes such as live streaming if you’re a gamer or just general recording.
