Are There Limitations? 

As many would suspect, you cannot screen record everything on the iPhone 12. Some examples are apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime video, or even Disney+. The problem with screen recording these is you then have a piracy issue. Along with piracy, it also violates those companies’ Terms and Conditions of using that service. Other than that, you can virtually screen record anything on the iPhone 12 you would like, including clips of games!
