I have an iPhone 4 with iOS 7 and I want to record the screen from the device, or stream the screen of the device on my MacBook Pro and record it with QuickTime.

How can I do that?

I have AirServer, but it works only with iPhone 4s+! No jailbreak on my device.


Unfortunately the use of such software has a pre-requisite of AirPlay Mirroring, which is not supported by an iPhone 4 at any OS level, hence teh requirement for an iPhone 4s minimum. If you had a device that supports it, then it's pretty straightforward (take a look at this answer elswhere on AskDifferent) but with an iPhone 4, you are out of luck unless someone can suggest a way of enabling it with a Jailbreak hack.

  • Therefore for iPhone 4 without jailbreak there aren't possibilites to share screen to computers/mac? thanks for your reply – Tenaciousd93 Dec 4 '13 at 11:19

You could try reflector, it emulates apple tv so you get your iphone screen on your mac. search Reflector on google.

  • I already tried reflector. According to compatible devices' page iphone 4 is not supported. Thanks for your answer. – Tenaciousd93 Dec 4 '13 at 9:45
  • For clarity, the compatibility issues do not stem from the software, but from the hardware, as such all similar software will have exactly the same issue. – stuffe Dec 4 '13 at 10:39
