If you are using an iPhone or iPad and want to promote your course, want to share some walkthrough videos with voiceoverdemonstrate a learning topic, or anything else: Apple’s screen recording feature records a video of what you’re doing on your screen with Voiceover using the microphone, which is great feature.

If you’re making a screen recording to demonstrate something in iOS, chances are it would benefit from some voiceover commentary. Fortunately, Apple enables you to do this by activating your device’s microphone for the duration of the recording.

To record your voice along with screen activity, simply follow these steps.

Invoke the Control Center by swiping down diagonally from the top-right corner of the screen.

Long press the Screen Recording button in Control Center instead of just tap on it.

If it isn’t there, you can add the function via Settings -> Control Center.

Tap the Microphone button so that it turns red and reads “Microphone On.”

When you’re ready, tap Start Recording.

And you will see a red icon for the screen recording here and on the top panel of the screen.

You can end the recording by tapping the Stop button in the top-left corner of the screen (if your iPhone has a Dynamic Island, tap it to reveal the Stop button), and the recording will be automatically saved to the image gallery.

You can capture the walkthrough videos and share them on your social media page to gain more learners by showing samples of your course.
You can prepare some slides on the iPad and draw something on these slides to explain learning content, like a teacher in school writing something on the blackboard.
