How to Record FaceTime with Sound on iPhone/iPad

Can you screen record FaceTime? The answer is YES. The easiest method to capture FaceTime calls on iPhone is using the built-in tool, the iOS Screen Recorder. It can be used in iOS 11 or later versions like iOS 14. When capturing the screen, you are allowed to capture the microphone sound.

It is easy to use, of course. However, if you don't have much storage space on your iPhone, we don't suggest you record a long video with it. Or, you may find there's not enough space to store your recordings.

To find this default tool, follow this guide:

Firstly, ensure this software is added to the Control Center of your iPhone. If not, refer to the below steps.

Go to "Settings" to find the "Control Center" and click it. Then, scroll down the menu to search for "Screen Recording". Hit the green "Add" icon to install it.
