Multimedia you can create

Screenshots are static images, so their size is relatively smaller than videos. They're also much easier to edit before sending to someone, for example by adding arrows or a circle indicating where the recipient should look.

Screen recordings create larger files because they are videos, but they can be more informative than a screenshot for demonstrating a complete multi-step task or animated feature.

When you take a screenshot or recording, everything you see in Apple Vision Pro's field of view will be part of the image or video. This includes the VisionOS interface itself, your physical environment in an end-to-end view, virtual environments, and open applications.
