Just wanted to share how to record videos on the upcoming iOS 11. A little mentioned feature is that it contains a screen recorder, that records device audio, and you can set it to record the microphone too. However annoyingly you cannot record game audio and microphone audio at the same time. The feature is in the control centre, however you’ll need to enable it first. Here is a video on how to do it:
Once you’ve enabled it, swipe up to go to the control centre or double click the home button. You’ll see a little circle surrounded by another circle - thats the record button. If you want to record a video, simply tap on it and the video will record. Once you want to stop recording, tap on it again to stop it, and you’ll get a notification that the video has saved. If you hold down on the button, you’ll get an option to use the microphone too.
I used the screen recorder to record the video below, and it works really well. However, I found that I had to wait ages for the button to show me the recording had stopped, so I’m not sure how well the screen recording will work for a long half hour flight. I did record a video of another game that was 12 minutes, and it took ages to save.
Here is the vid I made of my landing in a B787 in the BA livery, on 27L at Heathrow. 🙂
And also a BA 777-200ER landing into KOAK, Oakland:
I wrote this post on the public beta 6, so it may improve when the final version comes out.
I also bought an app called Lumafusion that is a video editing app, so know I can edit everything on my iPad without needing my pc. If you don’t want to buy something, iMovie is also pretty good.
I’m really glad it has a native recorder as I’ll be able to record flights and landings now! 😀
