This is a part of a series of posts where we talk about how to record a phone call on the various iPhones. We will be covering all iPhones right from the modest iPhone 4 to the new kid on the block – the iPhone 7. In this article we will talk about how to record a phone call on iPhone 6. Whatever we cover here will also hold for the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus
The iPhone 6
The iPhone 6 like its predecessors from the Apple stable before it, had its share of positive reviews as well as critical bashing when it was released on Sep 19th, 2014.
Taking a lesson from bigger screen phones that were fast capturing the smart phone market, Apple decided to launch the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays respectively. An improved battery life over the 5s, a better camera and a smarter and more intuitive OS earned it rave reviews from publications such as TechRadar and The Verge.
But here we are interested in one tiny aspect of a dizzying array of capabilities that make the iPhone 6 what it is – the simple ability to record a phone call.
Many professionals such as journalists, market researchers and for that anyone who wishes to interview someone over a phone call would do well to record the call to avoid taking notes during the call itself.
Well, if you were looking for any inbuilt mechanism to record calls on your iPhone 6, you are in for a bit of bad news – there aren’t any.
Apple’s Policy on Call Recording
Apple has stayed away from allowing any inbuilt features to allow call recording citing legal considerations and user’s privacy as the reason to do so. Laws related to call recording differ in various geographic and legal jurisdictions. For example here is an overview of call recording laws in various states of the United States alone.

What are your options then? How to record a phone call on iPhone 6 ?
To put things in perspective, the Android SDK (Software Development Kit) gives Android app developers access to the sound stream during a call. Hence Android apps can record calls and save it to the device.
That is not the case for iPhones though. Apple does provide that capability to its app developers.
Therefore for the iPhone 6 the only guaranteed method of recording phone calls, with every telecom carrier and every time, is to connect with or route the call through a service that records the line and saves it for you.
