Here’s how you can download and install Airshou on iOS 10, an iPhone screen recorder that works with both iOS 9 and iOS 10 and doesn’t require any jailbreak.
Apple strictly prohibits screen recording apps to be published on the App Store. Several apps in the past managed to get on the App Store but they were quickly brought down by the company. The reason behind this motive is to ensure the security of your device as malicious screen recording apps can continue to record your iPhone’s screen in the background without you realizing it.
One way of recording your iPhone’s screen is through QuickTime for Mac, but it is a hassle to use your computer every time you want to record the screen. If you’re jailbroken, there are several Cydia tweaks for screen recording such as Display Recorder, but what if you aren’t jailbroken? This is where AirShou comes in handy.
AirShou is a popular and secure screen recording app for iPhone and iPad, developed by the folks behind Shou.tv live streaming service. Airshou provides a simple screen recording utility with the ability to set the screen resolution and orientation as well as broadcast it on Shou.tv if you want.
The good thing about Airshou is that you can install it without jailbreaking your iOS device. The guide below shows you how to download and install Airshou iPhone screen recorder on iOS 9 and iOS 10.
