Bonus Tips to Screen Record on iPhone with Sound:

Apple is currently refining Siri's functionality in the iOS 17, with an added feature that allows users to initiate a screen recording by saying "Hey Siri, start a screen recording." And upon executing the command, the iPhone's screen will begin recording with sound until the user either terminate it by tapping the screen or issuing the command "Stop the screen recording."

But it is worth noting that the phrasing of the screen recording command must be specific, as using phrasing like "take a screen recording" may only capture a screenshot instead of recording a video. Although Siri has long had the ability to capture a standard screenshot, the newly-introduced screen recording function in this beta iteration is unquestionably a novel addition.
