OS X Yosemite Lets You Capture Your iPhone Or iPad Screen

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.

What do you think of this new feature?

    Apple warns you about showing off features, screenshots or any content included in their developer preview. Even tweeting or bloging about it is not allowed, Apple may take legal actions against you for doing this and suspend your iTunes account indefinitely.

    First, I doubt Apple can track his account ID through this blog.
    Second, this is a feature for devs. Devs may not have known about it and may learn and use this knowledge in the submission of their apps. For this main reason I think Apple may support they post.

    Apple usually sends letters and emails telling the people who own the sites to stop spreading content. If they do not follow that, they could potentially file a lawsuit.

    Also, I understand that it is for Developers. When a developer joins, they are presented with a set of guidelines that the developer has to accept. Therefore they must have read it, these guidelines are pretty short and can be read in a few minutes compared to the thousands of hours it would take for you to go through Facebook.
