OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 Will Now Let You Record Your Screen

App developers and downloaders rejoice! Apple will at last let you record your iOS device screen just by plugging it in via your Lightning cable.

Apple announced at this year's WWDC that the App Store will now let developers upload videos alongside screenshots in app pages. This benefits both the developer and consumer - the developer can showcase what can be done with the app and the consumer can make sure it's something worth downloading.

It looks like this was built alongside the ability to record an iOS device screen too, something Apple didn't mention in their keynote.

To record the screen of an iOS device, the device needs to be plugged in using the Lightning cable, then using Quicktime you can record the screen live. It's really as simple as that.

With iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, you can capture real-time footage of your app directly off your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Just connect your device to your Mac using the Lightning connector and it will be automatically available as a video camera.
