Nope. Apple’s security is very strong and strict here. Apple doesn’t allow third-party apps access to the microphone and the integrated Phone app directly. sad
So you can only achieve call recording by doing a 3-way call conference with someone having an Android phone and ask them to record. Previously special devices were available that you could plug into the headphone jack on the iPhone to record the call but new phones don’t have a headphone jack now biggrin

So much and so little with such an expensive phone. Utterly basic functions missing.

Those are native apps which run independently when the app is in foreground..
What he meant to say is, Apple does not allow any app which imitates the native iPhone functionality like Android call recording apps..or record microphone when call is in progress..

There are few rules from Apple side which should be followed by iOS app developers other wise app will be rejected.. (You are restricted on what you access with Apple dev libraries)

Infact WhatsApp calling used to work differently till iOS 10 as there was no possibility of waking an app from kill state automatically for calls..(people used to get whatsapp calls only if App is in foreground, if not App used to display missed calls) then Apple introduced call Kit in iOS 10 then few things changed..

There is a reason people say, its a Walled Garden..

I wanted to know this too, whether there is any app no matter how expensive which can bring call recording to iPhones. But shame to know it’s still not available. In these days when we are surrounded by scammers and fraudsters call recording is MUST HAVE. Hope Apple will bring the feature natively in some future iOS release. Google’s recent approach from A11 is rather stupid too, altering the party that call is being recorded, kills the very purpose of it for god’s sake, but at least with android we can root and install excellent apps which record in excellent quality.

Well I would jailbreak it in a heartbeat just for the sake of having calling recording feature but i heard the jailbreaking is only for older iOS releases, does that still hold true nowadays? Staying on an really older version of software isn’t particularly exciting lol.

Some would argue privacy is better than having these features. But in reality privacy is a myth
