How to Screen Record on iPhone XR

So, you want to be able to screen record on the iPhone XR, right? We can’t blame you. It’s a compelling device that offers a lot to people. Being able to record your screen has a variety of different uses, and so it is obvious why people would want to introduce such a feature. 

However, it’s not the most noticeable feature that your phone can do. It’s not exactly well-advertised at the beginning of the XR’s lifespan. So you might not know how to record your screen, which is why we’ve put together this guide on what to do and how to do it.

Activating the Screen Record Function

The first thing that you are going to want to is to activate the screen record function. But how do you do that? 

Well, it’s not complicated. Do you know how your iPhone XR has a control centre? That’s where you will find the screen recording function. But first, you have to go and activate it in settings. From inside your settings bar, you need to look for the part that says control centre. If you tap that, and then the customise controls subsection, you’ll be able to change the layout of your control centre.

From there, it’s quite easy to alter your phone to be able to provide the screen recording option whenever you go into the control centre. You have to select the option and toggle it on.

Activating The Screen Record Function

Now that you have activated the function which allows you to screen record, you are ready to get started. What you’re going to want to do is swipe from the top right-hand corner downwards. This will activate the control centre and present you with the various options you have, like, for example, a flashlight or quick access to the camera. However, what we are interested in is the screen recording function.

To screen record on your iPhone XR, you have to push that button. There are a few things that you should know before you get started. First of all, the iPhone doesn’t record audio being played on the phone itself; it literally just records the screen. Nothing more, nothing less. It also gives you a brief few seconds before it starts recording to go to the place you want to start at. It’s important to remember that there will be a slight delay before anything is recorded. 

So, that’s that. It’s easy for you to record your screen with an iPhone XR, providing that you knew exactly how to activate the feature in the first place. It’s just one of many things that an iPhone can do and do well. We have always thought that the iPhone XR, and indeed, every model produced by Apple is an excellent addition to anyone’s collection. It’s just a case of making sure that you activate the correct functions and then you can record anything you want from your screen.
