That's because, to record iPhone 7 Plus's screen, I need to plug it into Macbook Air or Macbook 12 inch.
Now, when QuickTime records the screen of iPhone, it probably use a lot of processor power (together with hard drive power constantly). That probably is a lot of power consumption all at once.
I have noticed that in some cases, my Macbook 12 inch would even shut itself down when battery level is at 75% or 69%, probably due to power consumption bigger than the battery can afford.
So if my iPhone 7 Plus still has 80% of battery, I really don't need to draw power from the Macbook. Is there a way to tell the Macbook USB not to charge the iPhone?
P.S. I cannot plug in the Macbook to AC adapter, as I might be recording the iPhone screen in the car or on the go, so there might not be power outlet readily available.
