GarageBand iOS Crashing? Fix with Reset GarageBand (iPhone/iPad)

GarageBand won’t open and crashes whenever you try? The answer may be simpler than you think – reset GarageBand using the option in your iPhone or iPad’s settings.

In this video, I provide a quick guide to fixing this annoying but easily fixed error so you can get back up and running in GarageBand iOS.

Here’s the steps to take:
1. Backup any GarageBand projects on your iPad or iPhone (these shouldn’t be affected, but doesn’t hurt to have backups!)
2. Close GarageBand and all other apps
3. Go to your “Settings” app in iOS
4. Scroll down to “GarageBand”
5. Scroll down to the “Reset GarageBand” option and enable
6. Open GarageBand – presto!
7. Your GarageBand is reset to the factory settings, leaving your project and audio files unchanged!

If this doesn’t work, the final option is unfortunately to delete the GarageBand app and re-download and install from the App Store.

Screen Recording in iOS 11 – with Microphone & iPhone/iPad Audio

Screen recording in iOS 11 on the iPhone and iPad has been a great addition and the ability to record both the audio from your apps and your microphone makes it even better.

However, when you record both audio sources, the resulting video file separates the audio on to two separate tracks, which video editing software like iMovie and even more advanced editors like LumaFusion will not support.

The solution? Take a second screen recording of your screen recording! This sounds strange, but if you take your original screen recording with both audio tracks, play it back via the photos app and record the screen again without the microphone audio, the result is a new video file with your original app AND voiceover audio mixed down to a single track, ready for importing in to iMovie or any other editing software.

Take a look at my original iOS 11 screen recording video here – https://youtu.be/sdXZ2_Vl9CY
