Easily Record and Broadcast your iOS Device on Yosemite
One of the really nice new features in Xcode 6 is the ability to record and or broadcast your iOS device on Yosemite. In the past you would have needed a tool like Reflector or AirServer in order to do this, but now all you need is QuickTime Player! And it couldn’t be any easier…
To start, connect your iOS device to your Mac. Behind the scenes Yosemite is setting up your device as a new camera input. Next open QuickTime Player. Now click on the File menu and choose New Movie Recording. You should see your QuickTime window open to the default video source which will be your built-in FaceTime HD Camera.
Now you’ll need to change your camera source to your iOS device. Click on the down-arrow icon next to the record button in your QT Player window.
You’ll see a menu pop-up and your iOS device should be listed. Select it and…
Voila! Your iOS device is being mirrored on your Mac!
Now you can either record a session from your device or simply use the window to present your screen on a conference/video call or on a projector in the board room!
