As seen in this question, it's possible to record an iPhone or iPad using a Mac by using Quicktime's recording features. This unfortunately isn't an option on Windows, as Quicktime for Windows was discontinued fo in 2016 without ever adding this feature.

Is there any way to record an iPhone/iPad screen on a Windows PC?

  • Yosemite was released in 2014, so newer versions of QuickTime should have the same features

Enabling screen recording on iOS 11

  1. Launch SettingsControl CenterCustomize Controls.
  2. Scroll down in the list and add Screen Recording
  3. Close Settings

iOS 11 - Enable screen recording in settings

  1. Swipe-up from the bottom of the display to reveal Control Center
  2. Tap Screen Recording button to immediately begin recording (or 3D Touch to bring up menu)

iOS 11 - Screen recording in action


You can use a software like AirServer or Reflector 2.

The software simulates an AirPlay receiver (like an AppleTV) and you select this receiver on you iOS device.

These are commercial applications but you may give their trials a try.
