Recording and sharing gameplay is something many game players love to do. They would like to post it on YouTube or share it using messenger or other means of communication. If you want to do that, a great screen recorder is necessary.

When it comes to iOS devices, Apple offers a native way to record screens, but the operation is not simple. For example, you cannot record some apps. This post will show how you can record iOS gameplay on Mac, which gives you a better choice over other recording apps.

iOS allows you to mirror the screen on other devices such as TV and even MacBook. If you are bored playing on a small device, you can continuously stream to your MacBook if they are on the same network. It also means that you can record game playing on iPhone/iPad by mirroring it on MacBook. Then you can use the EaseUS RecExperts for Mac to record it.

The Mac screen recorder allows you to record the screen, camera, audio, and iOS Devices with only a few clicks. It's possible for you to easily capture whatever you need on your Mac screen, even if you are a beginner. The "Record iOS" feature can detect the iOS devices on the same network as your MacBook, and when it mirrors, it can record everything on the screen of iOS devices with your MacBook.

In addition to its recreational functions, you can also use this recorder to record Webex meeting, Zoom meetings, or online webinars to backup content in meetings. Or you can record with it and make a tutorial video if you need to give a class to your students.

Steps to Record iOS Gameplay on Mac:
