How to Enable a Screen Recording on your iPhone 13

Like most iPhones, the best and only way to create a screen recording on your iPhone 13 is through your Control Center.

To access the Control Center, swipe down the upper-right corner of your screen. This will display some shortcut options, including the screen recording icon (it looks like a circle in another circle).

Tap on it and wait for the 3 seconds countdown – your phone should begin to record after the countdown.

To confirm if your iPhone 13 has started screen recording, check the upper left corner of your screen; the clock should turn red. The screen record icon should also turn red.

When you want to stop screen recording, repeat the steps outlined.


You can tap on the red clock and select “Stop” on the pop-up menu.

If you can’t find the screen record icon on the Control Center, there’s no need to panic. The screen record option is usually deactivated by default. So, you will need to activate and add it to your Control Center. Let’s show you how;

Select the Settingsicon on your screen, then scroll down and tap Control Center.

Under the More Controls list, tap the green +button beside the screen recording option. It will automatically move to the list above, the “Included Controls” list.

There you have it! You can now access the screen recording option through your Control Center.

Once you are done recording, you can check “Photos” to watch your access and watch your recorded video. You can also edit and share it with as many people as you want.
