Tips for Screen Recording on iPhone

If your recording has background music as well as in-game noises, you may want to silence the music so that your narration is simple to hear and does not become muddled up. Later, you can mix music – whenever you want.

It is best practise to clear the Home screen before starting to record. Create a separate page to feature just the applications you’re excited about. When done thus, navigation is a breeze and the final result looks fantastic. Turn off all alerts immediately.

Spending even a little amount of time in advance on preparation may have a huge impact on the quality of the final recording. Make sure you have a private space to record in and a list of the most important points you want to make before you start.
