Yesterday, I wanted to record my iPhone screen because I saw a funny part in a video that I wanted to share with my friends. I recorded the Screen with audio (hit “Mic on”) and cut the part, that I wanted to show. Now it gets funny – when sending this part my friend doesn’t seem to have sound on the clip – it’s muted.

As one of the funniest features of iOS 11 – screen recording enables users to record any operation on an iPhone/iPad screen as videos and save them in a Photo Video album. It does not just save the video, but also the audio, from both the outside voice and the built-in apps, as long as you turn on the microphone.

However, recently when the latest iOS 14 was released, more and more users who have updated their iOS device to the latest iOS have complained that there are many problems occurred, such as Flashlight not working, screen recording no sound, and iMessage bug, etc. Among these problems, the screen recording no sound issue is the most typical one that has cropped up in iOS 13 before. How could this iOS 14/13 screen recording no sound issue happen? By far we guess it is probably a bug of iOS 14/13 and fixed in the future version by Apple.

But now what can we do with it? How to fix iOS 14/13 screen recording with no sound on your iPhone or iPad? Luckily we have collected and tested several practical methods which you can try in the following. Keep reading.

Make Sure Your iPhone iPad with Microphone Turning On

Only when you turn on the microphone, there will be audio saved in videos. If you still have no idea how to toggle on the microphone when screen recording, please follow the steps:

Step 1. Go into the Control Centre.

Step 2. Find the Screen Record icon.

Step 3. Hold on to the icon for a pop-up.

Step 4. Press Microphone Audio in the pop-up. The gray icon should turn red to signify that you’ve turned on the microphone.

If the microphone is on and the screen recording has no sound still, you can try to turn it off and on.

Restart Your iPhone iPad

If after taking Method 1, screen recording no sound still exists on iOS 12/11, you can try restarting your iDevice to fix it. It works on most occasions. But you need also to know that there could be a weird thing that audio maybe works the first time, but later there is no sound again to do screen recording, according to the user’s feedback:

Strangely I have noticed that for me, both audio and video recording works the only first time after I restart my iPhone. But when I try to record the same video again or a different video, I could not hear any audio. – User from Apple Discussion
