How to Hide Phone to Record Video Secretly

Are you looking for a way to capture video on your iPhone secretly? Maybe you want to capture a surprise moment or record a time-lapse without draining your battery. Well, you’re in luck! In this post, we’ll show you how to easily and quickly record video while the display appears to be off.

First things first, head to your Accessibility settings and scroll down to Guided Access. If it’s turned on, make sure to turn it off. Next, go to Accessibility Shortcuts and select VoiceOver. Once you’ve done that, head back to your home screen and launch the Camera app.

Start capturing video and then triple-click the side button (or home button for devices with Touch ID). This will activate VoiceOver, which will appear to turn off the display. But don’t worry, you’re still recording!

To get the display back on, simply triple-tap the screen with three fingers. And to turn off VoiceOver and stop recording, triple-click the side button (or home button for devices with Touch ID) again.

This method not only captures video but also audio. And if you’re recording a time-lapse, turning off the display can help preserve your battery life. Plus, it’s a great way to capture surprise moments without anyone knowing.

This method works for iOS 14 and 15, and it’s a lot easier and faster than previous methods. So give it a try and let us know how it works for you!
