Screen Recording with internal audio is a feature that allows you to record the audio that is being played on your iPhone while you perform a screen recording. This feature is not available on all devices, and there are certain criteria that your iPhone must meet for this feature to work. There are also different methods that you can use to screen record with internal audio on iPhone. In this blog post, we will outline these methods in detail so you can choose the one that is most suitable for you.
Firstly, you need to make sure that your iPhone is running on iOS 11 or later. Screen recording with internal audio is not available on earlier versions of iOS. Additionally, you need to ensure that your iPhone has sufficient storage space to accommodate the recorded video file.
Method 1: Using the Built-in Screen Recording Feature on iPhone:
The easiest way to screen record with internal audio on iPhone is to use the built-in screen recording feature. Here are the steps involved:

3. Once you tap on the screen record icon, a countdown timer will start, giving you time to prepare for the recording. You can choose to turn on the microphone to record audio from the microphone and speaker or turn it off to record internal audio only.
4. When ready, start the screen recording by tapping on the red record button on the Control Center. The recording will start after a 3-second countdown.
5. To stop the recording, tap on the red timer in the top-left corner of the screen and confirm your action by tapping on “Stop.”
6. Finally, the recorded video file will be saved in your Photos app.
