  1. Make sure your iPhone and PC are connected to the same WIFI connection.
  2. Swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen, and tap “Airplay” or “AirPlay mirroring”.
  3. Connect to “Apowersoft”.

Then your iPhone screen is reflected on the computer.

You should notice that if your iPhone is running iOS 10 or above, choose the name that displays as “Apowersoft”; if the iOS system is below iOS 10, tap “AirPlay”, choose the device named as “Apowersoft” and turn on “Mirroring”.

Step 2: Check Settings

  1. Go to the “Options” on the right side of the app.
  2. Choose “Capturing Settings” where you can change video format and quality, and audio input. Notice that the “Audio input” source should be “system sound and microphone”.
  3. You can also change and select an output destination here.

Step 3: Record With ApowerMirror

  1. Tap the “Start recording” button on the right side of the application.
  2. Make a video call through WhatsApp, and it will be recorded; if you finish the video call, just tap the same button to stop recording.
  3. Check the recorded files.

Note: If you want to successfully record sounds from both parties when making a video call through WhatsApp, you have to speak via the microphone connected to your computer.

Thank you for these instructions, really helpful!! I'd also recommend Acethinker iPhone Screen Recorder which I have been using for many years. I always use it to record gameplay and video call, works pretty well.
