There are a lot of scenarios in which you might wish to (legally) record a call on your iPhone, but not a lot of ways to actually do it. While it’s encouraging to know that Apple puts a premium on user privacy, the company’s zealousness in this area can make doing things like recording calls tricky.
A Few Factors Should Be Considered Before You Begin Recording a Call on Your I Phone:
Different states have different regulations on the recording of phone calls. To read the law in your state, please go here.
Apple’s iOS doesn’t allow you to record audio from the phone’s microphone while a call is in progress. You can’t press the record button when you’re in the middle of a phone call.
You require either a third-party app that uses separate call software like Google Voice or an extra iOS device with audio recording and microphone functions. Please be aware that there may be a subscription cost associated with using these third-party apps.
If you own an iPhone and want to record a conversation, the approach outlined below is the most user-friendly one, especially if you’re looking to maintain some degree of covertness.
How to Make a Call Recording on An Android Device Is Covered as Well
- You’ll need the following items for the procedures that follow:
- It’s just one iPhone on speakerphone.
- Use of Voice Memos on a second iOS device to record the conversation
- An iPhone’s ability to record phone calls
- 1. Put your voice memos app to the test
To begin, you’ll need not one but two iOS gadgets—an iPhone and an iPad or another iPhone—each with the Voice Memos app installed. Most mobile devices already have Voice Memos preinstalled, and if not, you can get it from the App Store at no cost.
Start a discussion and talk for a while after opening the Voice Memos programme to make sure the recording quality is adequate for later playback. Simply press the red button one more when you’re finished recording, and a file titled “Voice Recording (number)” will play.

Listen to The Audio File and Tweak It as Needed
Before recording a phone call, you should now play back the file to determine whether or not the audio is distinguishable and make any necessary edits. If the quality of the sound is poor, try raising your voice volume, adjusting the microphone’s sensitivity, or bringing the speaker closer to your mouth, as examples.
A-Half: Begin the Tape Recording
Prepare to record with Voice Memos on your second device by setting it up. Close the device in on the calling phone and press the red button again to begin recording. If you want to make sure you don’t miss a word of the discussion, start the recording before you make the call. Start the call on your iPhone’s speakerphone.
Note that the red lines on Voice Memo represent how successfully the programme is capturing sound. The greater the size of the red bars, the greater the volume. If the waves continue to be flat, try raising the volume on the call or repositioning the gadgets.
You Might Have to Let the Other Person Know that You’re Recording the Conversation
It’s important to know whether or not the state in which you’re recording and living requires two-party consent to make a recording. In one-party states, such as California, just one participant (that would be you) needs to provide permission for the call to be recorded. Two-party states necessitate the agreement of both the recorder and the subject of the recording.
Stop Recording, and Then Send the File to Your Computer
After you’ve finished talking or gotten the information you needed to make your grandmother’s secret Apple Pie recipe, you can stop the recording by pressing the red button again.
In order to transfer a recording to your iPhone, you can do so from within the Voice Memos app by selecting the file, tapping the ellipses button (three dots), and then choosing one of the available methods of sharing.
Some Other Way
What I’ve outlined above is the quickest, most effective, and stealthiest method of recording a phone conversation. Here are some possibilities if you (or a reliable third party) don’t have access to another iOS device.

VoIP by Google
Google Voice for iOS allows users to make calls over WiFi for free and record them. With this app, you can choose which of your connected devices to make a call from. To enable recording of incoming calls, head to Settings > Calls > Incoming Calls and flip the switch. To initiate and stop a recording once the call has begun, hit the number four (4) on the phone’s keypad. After the call is finished, the recording option will appear in the menu.
