Some important Screen recording tips

The reason is when you turn on screen recording in iOS 11, it starts recording everything that is displayed on the screen. So, if any notification or message arrives during that time, it will be recorded. So, turn off the notifications, or put the iOS device into airplane mode.

- Finally, go for trimming the screen recording a bit in the Photos app to make it much clearer. For example, when you stop the recording or else close the Control Centre that is captured on the recording. So, eliminate the first and last part of the video to make it look perfect.
