Life hack: how to record video on iPhone with music from a smartphone

The standard camera application on the iPhone automatically turns off the music playing on the device when shooting a video. This is a protective measure so that the user does not accidentally record a song or podcast episode over the surrounding sounds, which can ruin the recording.

But not all users know that iOS has a way to record both the sounds from the camera microphone and from the smartphone itself. Here's how.

  1. Make sure your camera is in Photo mode and not Video mode.
  2. Turn on the music on your iPhone that you want to play in the background.
  3. Open the Camera app ”.
  4. Hold the capture button and move it to the right – to the lock icon.
  5. Now you can remove your finger: you are recording a regular video, but with music from the iPhone over the main audio track.< /li>

The finished video will be saved to the Photos application, where it can be edited in the same way as regular videos.
