How to screen record on iPad with sound?


Screen recording on an iPad with sound allows you to capture video tutorials, gameplay, and more. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the simple steps to enable this feature and create engaging content on your iPad.

Unleash the magic of screen recording on your iPad – with sound!

To screen record on an iPad with sound, follow these steps:

  1. Open Control Center:
    • Swipe down from the top-right corner (on iPads with Face ID) or swipe up from the bottom (on iPads with a Home button) to access Control Center.
  2. Enable Screen Recording:
    • In Control Center, locate the “Screen Recording” icon (it looks like a solid circle within a ring). If you don’t see it, you may need to add it in Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls.
  3. Start Recording:
    • Tap the “Screen Recording” icon. A countdown will begin, and the icon will turn red, indicating that the screen recording has started.
  4. Enable Microphone Audio:
    • To record sound from your device, long-press or 3D Touch the “Screen Recording” icon (depending on your iPad model) to reveal additional options.
    • Tap the microphone icon to toggle on audio recording.
  5. Begin Your Activity:
    • Proceed to do whatever you want to capture on screen. This can be anything from demonstrating an app, playing a game, or giving a presentation.
  6. Stop the Recording:
    • To stop recording, tap the red status bar at the top of the screen. You’ll receive a prompt asking if you want to stop recording. Confirm by tapping “Stop.”
  7. Save and Access the Recording:
    • The recording will be saved in the Photos app. You can find it in the “Videos” or “All Photos” album.

Keep in mind that the microphone audio option captures ambient sound and your voice if you’re speaking. If you’re trying to record audio directly from an app or system sound, you might need to explore additional methods or apps, as some apps may have restrictions on screen recording.

Remember to respect privacy and copyright rules while screen recording, and ensure you have appropriate permissions for any content you’re capturing.

What are the options available when long-pressing or 3D Touching the “Screen Recording” icon?

When you long-press or 3D Touch the “Screen Recording” icon in the Control Center, you’ll reveal a menu with various options related to the screen recording feature. One of the primary options you’ll see is the ability to toggle on or off the microphone audio. This is crucial for recording external sound, such as your voice or any ambient noise while capturing your screen activity. Additionally, you might find shortcuts to third-party apps or settings related to screen capture, offering extended functionality beyond the standard screen recording option. This menu acts as a convenient control panel for customizing your recording experience, ensuring that you can capture your screen with sound in the way that best suits your needs.

It’s important to note that if you’re looking to record internal audio (such as the sound directly from an app or system), this functionality may not be available through the standard screen recording feature. You might need to explore external methods or consider using specialized apps that offer this capability. Keep in mind that not all apps and screens support recording with sound due to privacy and copyright considerations, so be sure to respect any restrictions while using this feature.

Is there a way to mute/unmute audio during the recording process?

Yes, there is a way to control audio during the screen recording process on an iPad. When you initiate a screen recording using the built-in screen recording feature, you’ll notice a red recording button at the top of your screen indicating that the recording is in progress. To mute or unmute audio during the recording, you can tap on this button. When you tap it, a menu will appear, providing you with the option to toggle the microphone audio on or off. This means you can quickly mute the audio if you wish to capture your screen activity without any accompanying external sound, or unmute it to include your voice narration or ambient sound in the recording. This control is especially useful for ensuring that your screen recording captures the audio exactly as you desire.

It’s worth noting that this control panel for audio management is accessible directly from the recording interface, making it a convenient feature for users who want to have real-time control over their recordings. However, if you’re looking for more advanced audio options or want to record internal audio directly from apps or the system, you may need to explore third-party apps or additional settings beyond the standard screen recording feature.
