Before getting to the heart of the tutorial, let's find out how to do it record a phone call with iPhone for free, it is necessary to make some clarifications regarding the practice in question.
First of all, keep in mind the fact that, contrary to what many may believe, recording phone calls, even without the interlocutor's knowledge, it is neither a crime nor a violation of privacy. This is because the recording does nothing but fix, on a digital support (in this specific case the smartphone), what has already been captured by the hearing of the participants in the conversation.
What, on the other hand, is prohibited by law and represents a offense punishable by law and the diffusion of the recordings made, for example by sharing them via the Internet or by having them heard by third parties, unless the participants in the recorded call have given explicit consent to the thing or if it is necessary protect one's right.
Another thing that I invite you to consider is that, often, in order to record phone calls using the uses in charge of the purpose, such as those I will talk about in the next step, it is necessary to activate the conference service of their telephone operator, making an explicit request to the operator on duty. In this regard, if it can help you, I would like to point out my guides to find out how to get in touch with the customer service of TIM, Vodafone, Wind, Tre and Iliad.

As I told you in the previous lines, to do this you just need to use some special ones Whatsapp, as in the case of those that I have pointed out in the following lines, which in my opinion represent the best in the category.
However, keep in mind that unfortunately there are no totally free applications to record phone calls on iOS. Most of them can be downloaded and used at no cost for a trial period (1 week, 1 month etc.) or with limited functions (e.g. the inability to record calls for more than a certain number of seconds ) which must be unlocked through in-app purchases.
REKK Call Recorder
The first app to record a free iPhone phone call that I recommend you try is called REKK Call Recorder. It allows you to record incoming and outgoing calls, is very easy to use, has a nice user interface and even transcribes phone calls. To work, your carrier must support three-way calling. Basically it's free, but you can subscribe to the Pro version via in-app purchases (with costs starting from € 3,99 / month) to unlock extra features, such as the ability to record an unlimited number of calls and use separate telephone lines .
