How to Record iOS 10 iPads and iPhones

Recording the screen of any iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 is simple with the Reflector screen-sharing software.

Once you wirelessly connect your iOS 10 device to your Mac or PC, simply press the “Record” button on the iOS 10 device on your computer (shown below). Alternatively, you can begin recording an iPhone or iPad from the Reflector menu (also shown below).

Once you are done recording your iOS device, simply press the “Stop” button. Then select where to save the mp4 file on your Mac or PC.

Reflector provides voiceover support so you can include your voice with a device recording. This feature is often used in tutorials, presentations, lesson plans and mobile app reviews. In addition, you can enable your Facetime HD Webcam from the Reflector menu to include a video of yourself with the mobile device recording.

Pro tip: You can connect and record multiple iOS devices at the same time. This is ideal for educators and mobile gamers who may need to display and record multiple devices simultaneously.

Upgrade to AirParrot 2 for Uninterrupted Screen Mirroring

In 2014, we introduced AirParrot 2 — a completely rebuilt, supercharged and feature-packed version of the original AirParrot. We continued support for AirParrot for quite some time, but that time has come to an end. We will no longer be updating the original version of AirParrot.

The original version of AirParrot will not be compatible with new operating systems or the latest versions of the Apple TV. The release of tvOS 10 makes AirParrot incompatible with the fourth generation Apple TV, and the release of macOS Sierra will render certain parts of the application unusable.

AirParrot 2 will continue to receive operating system and receiver compatibility updates. We encourage you to upgrade to AirParrot 2 to ensure uninterrupted screen sharing.

AP to AP2 Upgrade
