Why can't I record my Facecam at the same time as my video on iPhone/iPad?

Why can't I record my Facecam at the same time as my video on iPhone/iPad?

Due to a limitation of the Apple iOS system, the camera cannot be turned on while recording your screen. However, you can add a Facecam overlay to an existing screen recording by following the steps outlined in Add the facecam to a screen recording using iOS.

If this limitation is removed in the future, we will work to incorporate it into our app. Thank you for your understanding!
