Display And Record iPhone Screen On Windows PCs

iPhone Screen Recorder from AceThinker can pair iOS devices with Windows PCs and mirror the screen of these devices as well as record them and take screenshots.

This program is available for Windows and can interface with iOS devices. First, download and install it from here. The main interface is self-explanatory just like any media player.


The overall process consists of 4 main steps :

Connecting iOS devices :  On Windows PC, allow the installed app through Windows Firewall if prompted. Once the iPhone Screen Recorder is installed on Windows PC, the iOS devices need to “see” it i.e be on the same network. This is done by choosing Control Center > AirPlay in iOS devices.
