For those who have tried to capture their iPhone screen before might have realized that it is kind of a pain in the a**. In order to do it well it requires you to jailbreak your iPhone or make complicated modifications or using expensive software. With iOS 8 and Mac OSX Yosemite Apple has made some changes that make this much easier. Here is how:
- Requirements: Your device must run on iOS 8 and your Mac must have Yosemite installed.
- Connect your iPhone to your Mac using your lightning cable
- Once connected, use your favorite software to watch or edit videos (like Quicktime, iMovie or other software similar to it)
- With Yosemite and iOS 8, Apple will see your iDevice as a standard camera input, allowing you to use any software that enables you to view video feed to record your iPhone or iPad screen.
- Select your iPhone as the input device and voila!
Why is this useful? It is mainly a handy feature for Youtubers and developers, since now we will most likely see more demo videos from Apps on the App Store, that allow you to get a better idea on what the App does and how it works before purchasing or downloading it.
