  1. Will app developers be able to turn off screen recording in particular apps? Many screen recording apps today like educreations only allow saving to camera roll if you have the paid version.

  2. This feature is definitely really important for many iOS users, especially Snapchat or Instagram users to record live videos. It’s one of the best additions on iOS 11. Currently, I’m using a desktop app call Acethinker iPhone screen recorder that mirrors my iPhone screen to the computer and use its screen recording function to make videos. It’s not that direct, but it works.

  3. Although when you uploaded a video to YouTube the sound/audio doesn’t carry over. You know a solution?

    1. It normally would. In the video (and the sample that was recorded during the video) I turned off microphone, watch 1:25 onwards where I turn off microphone. You can turn it back on by long pressing or force tapping on the record button and then tapping on the microphone button.

      1. Yes, I seen that. I had the mic on in the video I did. It recorded just fine and is in my camera roll with audio. But when I uploaded it to YouTube or anywhere else it doesn’t not have audio
