Record Screen On A Normal iPhone or iPad

Since there isn’t a free hack for it, the only way to do it is by using apps. There is a wonderful app, Reflection which is meant for capturing screen. Now if you are wondering how to use it, then here is the way.

  • Before you buy this app, make sure that you can use AirPlay on your Apple devices
  • With this app and Airplay, you can have the screen of your iOS device being broadcasted on the computer screen using WiFi
  • Once you can see the iOS screen on the bigger screen, just click on Start Recording or hit CMD + R

With a price tag of $14.99, this could be at the higher end of your budget, but is surely worthy. If you are looking for cheaper options, you can check out AirServer or a Bakari app.

If you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, then you can check Display Recorder app. This app is as good as Reflection, but make sure that you buy it from Cydia apps. Its operation is very much similar to that of Reflection, but is way cheaper. It would cost you only $4.99.
