3. Customize Your Screen Recording (Optional):
- You can customize your screen recording by holding down the “Screen Recording” button instead of tapping it.

4. Start Recording:
- After customizing your recording settings (if needed), tap “Start Recording” or simply tap the “Screen Recording” button again to begin recording.
5. Record Your Screen:
- Your iPhone will start a three-second countdown, and then it will begin recording your screen.

6. Access and Edit Your Screen Recording:
- After stopping the recording, you can find the recorded video in your Photos app under the “Recents” or “Albums” section, depending on your iOS version.
- You can edit, trim, or share the recording directly from the Photos app.
