iOS 11 Screen Recorder : iOS 11 promises to bring many new features, functions and enhancements to your device. It is dubbed by many experts as the best mobile operating system ever to be developed. One exciting feature that Apple introduces with this new firmware is the capability to record screen. None of the iOS versions had this capability before. Earlier, when you had to record the screen video, you needed to download a third-party app. Such an app was not available on Apple’s App Store and hence it had to be side-loaded from the third-party helper applications. With iOS 11, you now have the native ability to record the screen and the feature is built right into the OS. Isn’t it amazing?

iOS has made sure that screen recording is as easy as it could be. You have no reason to download any unsigned, unofficial third-party app from an external source anymore. All you need is just a press of button to start the recording and another press of button to stop it.
Please remember that screen recording is available only on iOS 11 and not on any other iOS version. Thankfully, a wide range of devices support iOS 11.
