iOS11 Screen Recording (for bug reports)

iOS11 is out and it supports native in-device screen recording! I’m a huge fan of attaching screen recordings to bug reports (they capture flow!), whether that be animated gifs or videos, and until now to do this on iOS required plugging your iDevice into your Mac via USB and using QuickTime to record the screen. Alas no longer, it’s now easy to do so via control centre!

Here’s a screen recording (no audio), recorded on my iPhone no less, that shows you how 😊

Protip: force touch the screen recording button to enable/disable microphone for narration

Protip #2: use the in built video editor to trim the start and end
