I am trying to make a video in which I write on a note app and use screen recording to capture it on an iPad Pro. However, the built-in mic makes the audio quality fairly bad, so I am trying to use a headset connected by Bluetooth. When I record, the audio quality isn't improved at all and I suspect that it's because the recording is still using the built-in mic rather than the connected Bluetooth input. I can't find any settings controlling which input device is used.

I also know the headset works and records higher quality audio since I have been able to use it on a Windows computer. Unfortunately I can't do this work on my Windows computer because that doesn't have good enough screen-writing abilities.

Does anyone know how to make screen recording on iPad which uses a Bluetooth input?

  • Go to the Bluetooth settings. Is the headset you’re using detected as a headphone or headset? The first has no mic whereas the second does. Do you see the headset icon in the top bar?

  • @Allan So I have connected the headset and gone to the Bluetooth options for this device. Where it says to select device type the only options are: Car Stereo, Headphone, Hearing Aid, Speaker, Other. I tried selecting other since no other option sounds ideal.

  • @Allan I do see an icon at the top, although I couldn't tell you the difference between a headset and headphone icon.

  • @Allan Hey, just wanted to let you know that I actually figured this out. It had to do with the Logitech app on my iPad needing an update.

I figured this out -- it turns out that my headset is a Logitech device, and I hadn't updated my iPad's Logi Tune app in a long time. So I went to the app, it prompted me to update. After it did, when screen recording, it now picks up the audio from the headset.
