OS X Yosemite Now Lets You Video Capture iOS 8 Device Using a Lightning Cable

Mac users used to video capture their real-time screencast of apps and games running on iPhone or iPad using  various devices/cables and programs. But it looks like that there is a much greater way that have been spotted in OS X Yosemite that Apple introduced yesterday at the WWDC.

As it was noted by Benjamin Mayo from 9to5mac, OS X Yosemite will greatly simplify the process by allowing you to capture a screencast by connecting an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad to a computer using a Lightning cable, no A/V adapters or HDMI capture cards needed whatsoever…

You just hook up an iOS 8 device to a computer using a Lightning cable and it will show up as a video input source in QuickTime. You can then use QuickTime to capture anything you’re doing on-screen and store it as a video file to your Mac.

Apple confirms:
With iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, you can capture real-time footage of your app directly off your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
Just connect your device to your Mac using the Lightning connector and it will be automatically available as a video camera.
Screencasts are especially relevant in light of the App Store improvements Apple mentioned yesterday, including so-called App Previews.

Developers will be able to download App Preview from iTunes this fall. 

Just like screenshots, Apple will review these videos and include a single App Preview per each app, alongside screenshots in the App Store on iOS 8 or later.

Apple explains:
• Just like screenshots, each App Preview is device specific.
• Submitting or viewing App Previews requires an iPhone or iPod touch with a 4 inch Retina display or iPad.
• You may only submit a single set of App Previews designed for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad against one language localization. App Previews will appear in all countries where your app is available.
