How to Record FaceTime Calls on your iPhone, iPad or Mac the Easy Way

If you’re an iPhone user, you must have already used FaceTime, especially if you’re fond of sending video and audio calls to your friends and relatives across the globe. As of now, almost every iPhone user is now using FaceTime for this task apart from Skype. However, it’s somewhat sad to realize that your precious conversation (especially with your loved ones) can’t be recorded using FaceTime alone. This is somewhat a downside, especially if you really want to store these conversations as precious memories in the near future.

How to Record FaceTime Calls on your iPhone, iPad or Mac the Easy Way


The good news is, even if FaceTime doesn’t have the recording feature, there are some apps that are available via App Store that you can use for such purpose. If you really want to know this one, here’s how:


  1. Using Apowersoft iPhone/iPad Recorder. If you’re more of an iPhone/iPad user, you can use this app for recording all of your video and phone conversations online. What’s more convenient is that the recordings can be synchronized if your iPhone or iPad and Mac PC are connected in the same Wi-Fi network. This is very useful since we all know that videos tend to eat up much iPhone and iPad storage space. In order to use this, just download and install the app on your Mac PC and activate the Airplay feature in order for your video conversations to get recorded. Once everything has been set up, just click the record button in your Mac PC and start calling.


  1. Using iRec for iOS. If in case that you have an iPad or iPhone but don’t have a Mac PC, you can still record your FaceTime conversations by using iRec. Especially designed for iOS, you can use this one for recording your FaceTime conversations as well as other video conversations from other apps. If you’re interested in using this one, just download and install the app from its manufacturer site. After installing, just run the app, check FaceTime and activate the ‘Start Recording’ feature. Once done, just sign in to your FaceTime account and start calling your friends. Be informed, though, that the video recording will not work if you don’t have enough storage space in your iPhone or iPad.


Between the two applications, most users prefer using Apowersoft due to its convenient features. However, this is only true if you own a Mac PC. Otherwise, using iRec can be a very handy option.
