We want to make sure your phone is able to capture any potential special moments, jso.Are you recording video directly through the camera app, or are you recording video as an attachment using the Message app? Do you get an error message once the video reaches 30 seconds? Is your device on the latest iOS? Settings>General>Software update.
Regarding the screeching sound, does this occur if you are using headphones or using the speaker? Does this happen with media that is being streamed, or media you have personally saved?
