With iOS 18 You Can Record Your Calls

Apple is adding a new feature to iOS 18, allowing users to record, transcribe, and get AI-generated summaries of their conversations. 

Apple is adding a new feature to the upcoming iOS 18, allowing users to record, transcribe, and get AI-generated summaries of their conversations. 

This enhancement aims to make it easier for users to handle and manage their phone calls. This move is considered a significant step in the integration of AI into everyday mobile activities. 

Recording with Compliance 

While on a call, iPhone users will be able to activate the recording feature by pressing on the specified button in the phone app. Once activated, the participants on the other end of the call will promptly receive a notification stating that the conversation is being recorded.  

To use this feature, users are required to abide by the local laws of the country and might ask for prior consent before recording any conversations. 

Real-Time Transcription, Multilingual Support 

As the recording process is activated, a soundwave will appear on the app, displaying its duration. Then, the conversation held will also be transcribed in the Notes app in real-time, enabling the user to get an AI-generated summary of the conversation.  

Conversely, the Note app, along with the phone app will also support this functionality, providing users with two different methods for the recording and the summary of their audio content. In this regard, and according to Apple’s iOS 18 Preview page, this feature will be available on iPhone 12 and other models, and supports English, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, and Portuguese. 

Despite the excitement expressed for this new feature, its limitations are still under question. It is yet unclear whether this feature will be enjoyed between iPhone users exclusively or if it will reach calls involving other smartphone brands. 

Apple Reclaiming Its Throne
