The iPad external hardware keyboard supports Shift-Command-3 and Shift-Command-4 for image screenshots. Is there any way to do a keyboard shortcut for video screen captures as well?

  • Are you saying the those keyboard shortcuts don't capture a video screenshot on the iPad Pro keyboard?

I can't find any keyboard shortcut that specifically does video capture.

I have an iPad Pro 11 with the new Magic Keyboard. Doing Shift+Cmd+3 and Shift+Cmd+4 work as expected.

I tried Shift+Cmd+5 and it has no effect, at least not the same result as on a Mac.

I can't find any documentation from Apple or 3rd-party sites that indicate how to do this, as of now.
