Shortcut Information

This shortcut opens QuickTime and begins a New Movie Recording by simulating a keyboard shortcut.

This lets you record the screen of a plugged-in device while displaying a default time of 9:41, full WiFi, and a full battery – rather than the actual state of your phone.

Using this shortcut, you can plug in a phone or iPad to a Mac and get perfect screenshots or screen recordings every time.
