Can you screen record on iPhone while on call?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

Unfortunately, it is not possible to screen record on an iPhone while actively talking on a phone call. Apple does not provide a built-in feature that allows you to simultaneously record your screen and have a phone conversation.

However, there are a couple of workarounds that you can explore if you really need to record both your screen and a phone call on your iPhone.

1. External iOS device with audio recording and microphone functions: One option is to use an external iOS device, such as another iPhone or an iPad, to record your screen while having a phone conversation on your primary iPhone. You can use the screen recording feature available on the external device and position it to capture the screen of your primary iPhone. To record the audio of the phone call, you can use a voice recording app on the external device. Simply place the external device near your primary iPhone’s speaker to capture the audio.

2. Third-party apps with call recording capabilities: Another option is to use third-party apps that provide call recording functionality. These apps generally work by routing your phone calls through their own servers, allowing them to record the conversation. Some popular apps that offer this feature include Google Voice, TapeACall, and Call Recorder. However, it’s important to note that these apps may require a subscription fee or have limitations depending on your region and local laws regarding call recording. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the legal implications and terms of use before using such apps.

While it is not possible to screen record on an iPhone while actively talking on a phone call, you can consider using an external iOS device with audio recording capabilities or explore third-party apps with call recording functions. Remember to comply with local laws and regulations regarding call recording and respect the privacy of others when using these methods.
