How to Screen-Record on Your iPhone 13, Mini, Pro & Pro Max

By Novak Bozovic / September 16, 2021

In the past, we were forced to use third-party workarounds to record our iPhones' screens. Still, the situation has changed recently, with screen recording becoming part of iOS. With that said, we'll show you how to screen-record on your iPhone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max – without relying on third-party apps.


Keep in mind that the following instructions apply to all iPhone 13 models. They also apply to any iPhones that can run iOS 14 or a newer version of Apple’s operating system (the latest one would be iOS 15, at the moment). 

How to Screen-Record on Your iPhone 13

It should be said that screen recording is somewhat hidden in iOS. So, here's how to activate and use that feature. 

1. Navigate to Settings > Control Center. Then, scroll a bit down. 

2. You should find the 'More Controls' section, with plenty of tools. 

3. Find 'Screen Recording' and tap on the 'plus' icon on the left-hand side. 

4. You’ll now see 'Screen Recording' in the 'Included Controls' section. 

Steps to Add Screen Recording to iOS Control Center

There’s something interesting to note about the order of tools you’ll see in the 'Included Controls' section. By using the right-placed hamburger button, you can move their position up and down. That action will also change their order in your iPhone’s 'Control Center.' 

5. Access 'Control Center' by swiping from the top-right corner of your screen. 

6. Find the 'Record' button, which looks like a full circle within another circle. 

7. To fine-tune how screen-recording works, tap and hold on the 'Record' button.

8. Now, pick the app that you'll use for screen recording. 


Based on the apps you have installed on your device, you'll see those that support screen recording. Some apps (such as Discord and Twitch) allow you not only to record your screen – but also broadcast it live. 

Steps to Set Up Screen Recording on iPhone

9. Then, enable or disable your phone’s microphone by tapping on its icon. 

10. To return to 'Control Center,' tap anywhere on your screen. 

11. Tap on the 'Record' button to start recording your screen. 

12. You’ll have three seconds to prepare before your screen starts being recorded.

13. To stop, tap on the red status bar at the top of your screen. 

14. Finally, tap on 'Stop' to confirm your decision. That’s it!
