“This is taking dragging culture to a whole new level. Tea and receipts have been upgraded.”
On Monday, Apple announced a laundry list of cool and nifty updates and features to the iPhone. But perhaps the coolest, niftiest, and most adapting feature is the fact that iOS 11 will allow you to screen record your phone. (!!!!)

New York resident Faix Shakir, 20, whose tweet and video showing this functionality has gone viral, told BuzzFeed News he was excited to try it out as soon as he learned about it. “I was shocked because you could be recorded while on FaceTime or Snapchat without your knowing,” he said.
“I think there’s multiple benefits,” Shakir said. “It’d be easier to show people who may need help with their phone exactly how to do something, i.e. my grandparents always ask me for help with their iPhone and now I can send a how to video via iMessage.”
Note: Shakir was able to upgrade to iOS 11 with a beta version, as he's part of a developer program with Apple. The upgrade will not roll out to the public until the fall.
