However convenient the screen recorder might be, you need to set-up the feature in your Control Centre. Just go to Settings > Control Centre > Customize Controls. After that select the plus icon (+) next to Screen Recording. This would make the Screen Recorder icon available on the Control Centre. You can access this feature by either swiping up from the bottom of the screen or swiping down. These gestures are available on the iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR.

To access the Screen Recorder is convenient once you have set it up in the Control Center. It has a white circle with a circular ring around it. Once this plays out you will have three seconds to close the Control Centre and come back to your video for the recording. A red bar is displayed on the top of the screen to know that the phone is recording.

The addition of audio is also available if you want to add that besides your screen recorder. The procedure is to press the Screen Record icon with some effort behind it and hence more options will be available. A Microphone Icon will appear on the pop-up screen after pressing the Screen Record Icon. The audio option will be added the next time you record a video with the Start Recording button.

To stop the recording the fastest way is to tap on the red timer icon on the top of the screen. After that, you will see the message about the Screen Recorder that it has been saved to Photos in the notification bar. To watch your video, tap on the notification. The alternate way is to go to the Control Centre and tap on the Screen Recorder icon to stop the recording.
