If you own any of the iPhone 13 series and you get confused about how to take video recordings on your device, here’s a step-by-step guide you can bank on.


The screen recorder is the ideal tool to consider while making illustrations from your phone screen or trying to copy something from the media.

The video record will contain everything on your screen which includes, navigation, sounds, and notifications but your microphone will be turned off by default.

Although the default video recording app on your iPhone 13 device might not have advanced features, it’s useful for simple video recordings.
