Have you ever thought you were recording video on your iPhone, only to realize after the fact that you failed to tap the record button properly? Here are a few things to look for to make sure you never miss a video again.

I think your third suggestion is the most “obvious” one to look out for. In no other situation is that white circle present - and it’s visible, if you know where to look for it, in just about any ambient light conditions.

The only problem with the white circle is that if you’ve taken a very light photo or video as the last on, there may be almost no visible change in that area in the screen. I think I’ll be paying attention to the flashing red dot from now on, but it’s telling that I didn’t know it was there until we wrote this article.
