    How To Record Calls On iPhone!


    Sometimes it is extremely important to record calls so that we can listen to them at a future time, recording a call allows users to hold a proof for what was said on the call, while recording isn’t a feature most people would need and it isn’t even necessarily legal in all places, this feature can come very handy while talking something important. Recording a call can come very handy when you are talking to a customer service executive and you need to hold proof of what was occurred, it can also come handy when you speak to your friends and family and forget what was told.

    How To Record Calls On iPhone

    Highlights of the Story

    • Recording a phone call can be of different importance to different people in different professions
    • While the recording isn’t necessarily helpful or even legal in all cases, it does come very handy in certain situations where you need to go back and listen to the conversation
    • While Apple doesn’t have a core component in the iOS software for recording the call, there are some alternative approaches that allow you to record a call after proper consent

    The option to record calls was primarily limited only to the large scale call centers that had dedicated equipment for recording calls, however, as the need arose and smartphones become more capable, we started seeing apps on devices that allowed the recording of calls.

    While Apple hasn’t installed a core component on iOS that allows users to record calls, there are situations where a call recording is important such as while conducting an interview over the phone after obtaining permission to record the call. In such situations recording a call is essential for work and there are a few options to record the call if you want to.

    Once you have done this, the call is merged and stored with a remote recording service, for outgoing calls, you can open the app and tap on the record option and then call the person to merge the call. TapeACall Pro doesn’t notify the other user that you are recording the conversation so it is important to keep in mind that if the place you live requires you to take consent before recording then you will need to do it manually. When you are done recording you can access the stored audio file form your smartphone

    Dear Akhil, Thanks for the writeup. I downloaded and installed the TapeACall app but it doesn't appear to be working in India. When prompted for my number, I don't see India as an option in the list of countries. Am I doing something wrong? Also Google voice is also not available in India.
