Apple debuted iOS 11 on Monday, the next big software update for the iPhone and iPad, at its yearly developer’s conference, Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2017) in California on June 5.
The tech giant introduced iOS 11, the operating system for iPhones and iPads, at Monday’s WWDC and highlighted all the new features coming with it – the coolest that will allow you to record your iPhone’s screen.
As someone whose best friend is off Facebook for a while, this feature would come in handy when I have to show him a video. And so, I got really excited about the feature. This is how it will work.
I had way too much fun recording this… but here’s how to enable screen recorder in iOS 11 and turn on / off mic too: pic.twitter.com/CAU0td9tG5— Alex Pettitt (@Alexpettitt) June 7, 2017
But Twitter is freaking out. This feature could actually be misused, a lot. People could capture your Snapchats and FaceTime calls without your knowledge. Screen recording will make it easier than ever for people to capture everything you do on social media.
