If you want to record phone calls on your iPhone, there are several methods available:

  • Using the screen recording feature
  • Using a call recording app
  • Using an external voice recorder
  • Using a corporate call recording service

Each method has its advantages and disadvantages, and the best method depends on what you want to record and your situation.

How to record calls on an iphone?

1.Using the Screen Recording Feature

With the iPhone’s standard screen recording feature, you can record not only the audio of your call but also the content displayed on the screen simultaneously.


  • No need to install additional apps
  • Simple and easy to use


  • Everything displayed on the screen is recorded
  • Screen recording may not be possible with some apps

2.Using a Call Recording App

The App Store offers a variety of apps specialized for call recording.


  • Capable of high-quality recording
  • Features comprehensive management functions for recording data
  • Some apps come equipped with convenient features like automatic transcription


  • Need to be cautious about the app’s security
  • Free plans may have limited features

Recommended Call Recording Apps

For detailed information about call recording apps, please read the following:

PCM Recorder: Suitable for interviews, reading aloud, and singing practice. Records in either high-quality but large 「.wav」 format or smaller 「.m4a」 format with slightly lower quality.

Features include simple editing and playback functions like sound cutting, equalization, and loop playback of specific sections. I also use it to focus on listening to meeting audio and lecture recordings.

Simple Voice Recorder: Features a straightforward interface that’s easy to use for anyone, displaying waveforms during recording to confirm it’s working properly. Playback speed can be adjusted, which I find useful for revisiting important parts of meetings or interviews. It allows cutting specific sections if unnecessary parts are found.

However, it does not support text editing after transcribing voice to text, necessitating editing the text file separately. It also does not distinguish speakers well, making it less suitable for transcribing meetings. I use this app for recording and use another app specialized in voice recognition for transcription.

3.Using an External Voice Recorder

For those seeking higher quality recordings, using an external voice recorder is an option.


  • Capable of high-quality recording
  • Can record for a long time without worrying about the iPhone’s battery


  • Need to purchase a separate voice recorder
  • Operation may be more complicated

4.Using a Corporate Call Recording Service

Corporate call recording services provide call recording features for businesses.


  • Strong security measures
  • Multiple people can share the content of calls
  • Helps with customer management and efficiency in telephone operations


  • Costs money

Legality of Call Recording

In Japan, recording calls in itself is not illegal.

However, attention should be paid to the following points:

  • Recording without the consent of the other party may be considered rude
  • Unauthorized publication of recording data may infringe on privacy
