On gaming consoles, controllers usually offer a designated button for users to record the screen or take a screenshot and Apple is offering a similar feature in its latest software updates: iOS 15 and macOS Monterey. The functionality is useful for users who want to quickly share a snippet of the game they are playing with a game controller.
Apple’s latest software updates support the ability to capture and save 15-seconds of gameplay at any time by long-pressing a specific button on a supported game controller – this eliminates the requirement of pausing a game to start or stop a screen recording.
iOS 15 and macOS Monterey will support 15-second gameplay recordings via a game controller
Rather than pausing a game to start and stop a screen recording, you can easily record 15-seconds of gameplay via a supported game controller like the PS5 DualSense controller, or Xbox Series X/S controller. The tech giant has described the functionality as “an awesome way to let gamers capture a great boss battle, an amazing combo wave, or an epic fail.”
With a press of the share button, save a video clip of up to the last 15 seconds of gameplay using game controllers like the Xbox Series X|S Wireless Controller or Sony PS5 DualSense™ Wireless Controller.
Both operating system updates are currently available for developers as beta 1. A public beta will be released in July most expectedly. A stable release of the operating systems will be made available this fall.
