Record iPhone Screen with Audio in iOS 11
Add the Screen Recording Shortcut
As iOS 11’s native Screen Recording tool is pretty hidden and disabled by default, so you first need to add its button to Control Center for a quick access. To do so, head over to the Settings app and tap on the Control Center option. From here, select Customize Controls and then scroll down to find the Screen Recording option. Finally, tap on the green Plus icon to add it to the Control Center.

Start Recording Your Screen
Once you add the Screen Recording control tile, you’ll now see the toggle switch that you can tap whenever you want to record iPhone screen with audio. By default, this will record any in-app music and sounds while shooting a screen video. However, if you want your screen recording to record your voice, long press or 3D Touch on the control tile until a pop-up menu appears. Afterward, tap on the mic icon at the bottom side to toggle audio on or off before you start recording. Now, tap on the Start Recording button to record iPhone screen with audio in iOS 11.
Regardless of how you initiate the screen recording, you’ll have a three-second countdown before the recording actually start. A red band will appear at the top of your device’s screen to remind you that you’re recording. In case you’re recording a game-play video, the red status bar won’t likely be shown as most games hide the status bar.
Stop Your Video Recording
In order to stop your screen recording, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access Control Center and tap on the Screen Recording icon. Alternatively, you can long press or 3D Touch on the above-said icon and tap on the Stop Recording option. Also, you can tap on the red recording status bar and then on the Stop option.
As soon as you stop recording, you’ll get a notification that you can tap on to quickly view the video in your Photos app. Now, you can go to the Photos app directly to find your screen video in your Camera Roll and Video albums.
Edit Your Video
In the Photos app, tap on the Edit button on your video. In order to trim it, just tap and hold on one of the black arrows on either side of the frame viewer and move it inward. There’s a yellow cropping indicator to help you easily set new start and stop points for your video. You can preview your clip anytime by tapping on the Play button in the bottom center.
Once you’re satisfied with the changes, tap on the Done button in the bottom-right corner and select the Save as New Clip option to save it. Don’t worry as this won’t overwrite the current clip, so you can rest assured about losing the original screen recording.
