It seems that Apple has done its best to make it difficult to record calls on iPhone, however, it is not impossible to do so. It might be a very important call that you want to record as you might need to refer to it later. On Android, there are a bunch of third-party apps making it easy to record the calls. But on iPhone, it would be a little tricky if you’d want to record calls for free. Here are some methods you can implement to record any call on your iPhone.
Record calls on iPhone using Google Voice
Aside from allowing you to block unwanted calls on your phone, Google Voice also allows you to record incoming calls for the price of zero dollars. The only downside in using Google Voice for this purpose is that you will only be allowed to record incoming calls, not the outgoing ones.
Before you start to record calls on iPhone with the help of Google Voice, of course you need to create an account. All you need to do is to head to voice.google.com and follow the instructions to create your account. Once you are done, the next step is to enable the call recording feature using the following steps.
- Open Google Voice homepage on your device.
- Click the three-dot icon on the left side of the screen to access Settings.
- Scroll down and click the Calls option and make sure the Incoming calls options is toggled on.
Once this option is turned on on your Google Voice, you will be able to record the call by pressing number 4 during the call. The call will automatically be saved to your Inbox. You can later listen to the call or download it if you’d want to. Of course, you will need to download the Google Voice app on your iPhone to be able to download he calls on your device.
Record calls on iPhone using call recorder apps
On Android, there is a plenty of apps allowing you to record calls all for free. But iPhone does not allow third-party apps to access the microphone and the phone app. End of the story! However, there are apps which have a workaround for this limitation but they come for a price. If you want to record both incoming and outgoing calls on your iPhone, you definitely need to pay for an app. But you need to make a wise choice and do not waste your money on rubbish apps. Here are some iPhone call recorder apps that are good for the money.
Call Recorder Lite and Pro
The Lute version of this app offers a trial version which allows you to record calls for 60 seconds. But to record beyond that, you need to upgrade to the pro version.
To use this app to record an outgoing call you need to start a three-way call by putting your call on hold, dial in the recorder through the app, and then merge the calls.
Call Recorder is a reliable service to record calls on iPhone. $10 will get you 300 minutes of call recording, but you can also buy 150 minutes for $5 or 30 minutes for $1.
TapeACall Lite and Pro
The Pro version of TapeACall offers unlimited call recording for the price of $9.99 annually. Call Recorder app does not require an annual fee and you have to pay for it once, but you will only have 300 minutes of call recording and you will need to make in-app purchase to go beyond that.
The steps to use TapeACall to record calls on iPhone is similar to the Call Recorder app and you will need to initiate a three-way call to start the recording.
