An iPhone Feature I Would Love To Have

Welcome back everyone, it’s been a minute since I’ve talked about a feature that I would love to have on the future versions of iOS, and one thing that I would love to have on any new version of iOS is the ability to screen record without having to go into our control center every single time. So, to give you some perspective, if I’m quickly in a Snapchat for example, in order for me to record a video that someone has sent I have to go into the control center, tap on screen record, and we have to record that video:

Some people may ask “what’s the problem with that?”, the issue with that is with apps like Snapchat (and some other applications as well) if you want to record something it requires you to close out of the video you’re looking at, so you won’t be able to screen record what you actually wanted to save! Like I mentioned, not every single app is like that, but there are several apps I can think of (Snapchat and Instagram) where this is the case.

What I would love to have is the ability to record our screen just like how we screenshot, we can screenshot with our volume/power button, imagine if we could screen record with those buttons as well? That would be an awesome feature. Imagine if you had to scroll to the control center every time you wanted to screenshot, that would be a massive inconvenience. In my opinion, I would love to have a feature where you could screen record simply by holding down a combination of volume/power buttons!

What do you think?

That’s pretty much it! if you guys have any other questions let me know in the comment section as well, more important than everything else I love every single one of you, hopefully, I’ll catch you in the next article!
