There’s a new feature in OS X 10.10 Yosemite that lets you record your iPhone or iPad screen. This can come in very handy for those who want to review apps, provide previews of their own apps and more. OS X Yosemite gets a lot of new features and overall, it wants to bridge the gap between OS X and iOS.
To record your iPhone or iPad on your Mac, you’ll simply need to plug in your device via USB and your Mac will detect it as a camera. You’ll need iOS 8 installed on your iPhone or iPad and OS X 10.10 on your Mac, only then will this work. Apple is putting this as a tool for app developers to preview their apps on the App Store.
Apple has updated the App Store app in iOS 8 and added features such as a new Explore tab. Apps can now show a short preview apart from screenshots.
App developers and Mac users who build or review iOS apps are going to enjoy this feature. Previously, users relied on jailbreak tweaks, cameras or other third-part apps to get this done.
