FaceTime video chatting is one of the highlights of iOS, allowing users to stay in touch with their family and friends around the world. If you frequently make FaceTime calls on your device, then at some point you may have wanted to record your calls so you can review it later.
There are several third-party apps out there that help you record your FaceTime or Skype calls. However, not all of them are worth your time and money. With that in mind, Apple built an exciting recording feature into macOS, known as QuickTime.
Basically, the QuickTime app lets you record the call from your Mac and from your iPhone, without the need for any third-party app to be installed on your device. We are going to show you how to record FaceTime calls on your iPhone and Mac. Before we proceed, make sure you now have a modern version of macOS on your machine.
