Record calls on iPhone without an app

All of us have come across situations where we have needed to record calls on iPhone for lots of purposes. From recording a singing friend to something very serious, it is an extremely important tool. Call recorders can come handy in numerous situations.

Androids have this important feature built in. iPhones on the other hand, don’t. This is mostly because of Apple’s privacy policy. So, in this article, we will discuss how you can record calls on iPhone without the need for any third-party applications.

Method 1: Record Calls Using Another Device

This is an easy way to record phone calls on iPhone if you have access to another device, such as a second phone, a laptop, or even a recording device. Follow the steps below to record phone calls with another device:

  • Put a call through to the person you wish to record your conversation with.
  • Then put the phone on the loudspeaker to amplify the sound.
  • Open the recorder on the other device to start saving up your conversation with the person.

Method 2: Record Calls Using the Voicemail Service

  • For this method to work you will need an iPhone with iOS 9.0 or later version as earlier versions do not allow the export of recorded audio files from your voicemail.
  • Ensure that your voicemail inbox is not full.
  • Check if your carrier allows for phone calls to be recorded as this is not allowed by all providers. Also, check if such recording is allowed as per your regional laws.

Before you proceed to record calls on your iPhone, turn off call waiting on your device to avoid possible conflicts. To do this,

Go to Settings > Phone > Call Waiting and disable the feature.

  • This will merge both the call and voicemail recordings for the entire conversation.
  • After the call ends, access this recording by tapping the Voicemail option in the iPhone menu.
  • To save recorded conversations, open the Phone app and select the Voicemail feature at the bottom. Then tap the share button to email the recording to yourself or save it to your computer.
