How to record the screen of an Apple iPhone 6s

Recording the screen of your mobile/cell phone Apple iPhone 6s in a video with sound can be very useful to perform a tutorial or show an acquaintance how to perform certain tasks in an Apple iPhone 6s, save in a video file and then send it or upload it to a platform like YouTube or social networks.

Sometimes we would like to record on video with sound a story that we have seen on Instagram of an acquaintance, a phone call or video call (FaceTime) with a family member to keep it as a souvenir or to use it as evidence or a TikTok video.

To make this recording in your Apple iPhone 6s follow these steps:

Estimated time: 2 minutes.

1- First step:

First of all we must verify that we have the control of screen recording activated in our iPhone 6s (if we already have it we can go to point 5). To check it we go to Settings, it is the gear icon that appears on the home screen of your Apple iPhone 6s.

If we already have the screen recording control activated, it will appear in the first list that we see on our iPhone 6s within the “INCLUDE” section, we can change the order in which it appears by clicking on the three horizontal lines to the right of the control and dragging up or down. We can also remove the control by clicking on the red button on the left.

If that activated control does not appear, we go down and in the “MORE CONTROLS” section it will appear, click on the green + button Add to panel icon to add it. Once this step is done we can exit the settings of the Apple iPhone 6s.
