iOS 14 could get native call recording for phone and FaceTime calls

Apple will hold its virtual WWDC event starting June 22, and during the event, it is expected to unveil the next major iOS update, iOS 14. Some features and changes that might make it to the update have leaked in the past, which include a new all apps screen, a new multitasking UI for iPhone, and the ability to experience parts of an app without installing it.

Another feature that might also make it to this release is a call recording feature that will let users record both, phone calls and FaceTime calls. A leaked engineering image accessed by the jailbreak community (via ITHome) provides a look at the settings page for the said feature. The page lets users simply turn on or off the ‘Audio Call Recording’ feature. Once turned on, it will record both incoming as well as outgoing calls automatically.

Additionally, the screenshot suggests that the Cupertino giant will include verbiage that asks users to notify recipients when calls are being recorded and also cautions users from letting others use their phone when the feature is enabled. It is not clear if the firm will go one step further and add a form of audible indicator to notify the recipients of the call.

iOS 14 will reportedly be supported on all current iOS 13 devices. It will be interesting to see what other features make it to the release, considering that the company is said to be pushing back some features for iOS 14 owing to the buggy release of iOS 13 and its efforts to make the update more stable.
