How to Easily Record from your iPhone Screen or Any App Using Apple Yosemite 10.10.
Apple Yosemite has been released free to the public and it’s quite apparent that the new Mac OS 10.10 is becoming more and more like the iOS 8 operating system. One great feature of Yosemite is the ability to plug in your iPhone to your Mac and record the audio and/or video from your iPhone or iPad. Prior to Yosemite, this was only possible using 3rd party apps that were quite glitchy and would crash continually while right in the middle of recording.
Recording your iPhone or iPad screen or any app is most beneficial to mobile application development companies because they can easily record footage of their apps for inclusion in the new App Store Video Previews. Recording your screen also benefits anyone who wants to simply get quick footage straight from his iOS device. A gamer may want to show himself playing his favorite iOS game or a social media user may want to show video of scrolling text message or Twitter timeline. The possibilities for what you can record directly from your iPhone screen are endless.
