Update Your iOS/ iPadOS Version

  2. Install the newest OS version on your iPhone or iPad. Check if error 5823 is gone.

Charge Your Device

If your iPhone or iPad is running low on battery, screen recording may fail to save. This is because your device saves the battery only for essential processes. Since saving the last screen recording is not an essential task, the OS simply abandons it.

Check if your device is on Low Power Mode. If you see a yellow battery icon in the status bar, charge your device. Screen recording quickly drains your battery. Your device may have switched to Low Power Mode during the screen recording.

Or maybe you intentionally enabled Low Power Mode to save battery power. Disable this battery option and check if the error is gone.

Turn Off the Mic or Put On a Headset

Your iOS devices rely on an interesting mechanism to avoid recording all sorts of noises when you’re screen recording, including microphone howling issues. If your microphone is on, try to turn it off during the screen recording. Or put on a headset if you want to record your screen with your microphone on.

Let us know if error 5823 is gone.
