How to record WhatsApp calls on iPhone

Ever tried recording WhatsApp calls on your iPhone? You might wonder, is that even possible? Well, iPhone lets you perform necessary actions such as turning off read receipts or last seen easily. However, Apple’s screen recording app does not let you record audio calls due to many strict legal measures.

Hence there is no direct way to record a WhatsApp call, but for this guide, we’re going to show you how you can record WhatsApp calls on your iPhone through Mac.

Is it possible to record WhatsApp calls using iOS Screen Recorder?

Although many claim it to be efficient, this method does not seem to work. You cannot use your microphone in two places at the same time. This means, if WhatsApp is using your microphone, your screen recorder cannot use it.

Can you record video calls using iOS Screen Recorder? 

Yes, the screen recorder lets you record video calls. However, you will have a recording with no audio clips whatsoever. Sometimes, WhatsApp video calls may stop working as the screen recording is enabled.
