3. Pay Attention to How Much You Are Recording
Though you can just go on and on with your recordings, make sure you recording only what you are needed. Not only does it make your recording look precise and professional, you will also save a lot of storage with this.
4. Clear Screen Clutter Before Recording
If you are recording something on the home screen, you might want to clean up all the icons to show only those that you’d like to highlight. That entails having a new wallpaper in place showing the required icons.
To set a new wallpaper, go to Settings>Wallpaper>Choose a New Wallpaper. Choose between Dynamic or Stills.
After selecting a wallpaper, tap on Set>Set Home Screen.
5. Enable Do Not Disturb Mode
There are always chances of that odd notification showing up when your recording session is in progress. Here is how you can prevent that:
Go to Settings>Do Not Disturb>Do not Disturb.
Select Silence: Always.
6. Fix the Lock Orientation
It is best to fix your screen orientation before recording, else the video orientation will change if you tilt your phone while recording.
To lock orientation, tap on the screen rotation padlock icon in the Control Center.
7. Turn off Display Zoom
You will have to turn the zoom mode off if you wish to record at full resolution. To do so, tap on Settings>Display and Brightness>Display Zoom | View>Standard>Set. Let the iPhone restart for the change to take effect.
8. Don’t Mute Your Device
This applies when you’d like to include the iPhone’s sound in your recordings.
9. Turn off In-App Music
Turning off in-app music (via app settings) will be a good idea if you feel that is creating a distraction in your recording.
10. Free System Resources
It’s best to close unnecessary apps as well as all background processes for the best performance, given that recording is a processor-intensive task and eats up system resources.
11. Create a New Page
To demo something with a single app, it’s best to create a new page to highlight the app even more. Simply long-press on the app and drag it to the right edge to open a new page with the single app.
12. Record According to a Script
Even if it’s a short video, it is best to have an outline of what you wish to achieve with the video and how best to attain that. This will make the video look more professional and well made. In short, shoot according to a script.
13. Use a Good Quality Mic
Use a good mic if you are recording your voice or surrounding audio for best results and to ensure a good audio experience.
14. Record in a Silent Place
At the risk of sounding superfluous, always record in a silent place to ensure good quality video.
15. Use Background Music
You may also opt to add music post-recording to make your video seem all the more appealing.
