The built-in Voice Memos app makes it easier for you to record on your iPhone, keeping all the sounds you want.
How to record with Voice Memos on iPhone
To get started, open the Voice Memos app on your phone.
In the application interface that opens, click the big red circle button to start recording.
Your iPhone will immediately activate the built-in microphone to record the surrounding sound. You can try singing a song, or say whatever you want. The corresponding audio recording will be created.
When you’re done and want to stop recording, tap the big red button at the bottom of the Voice Memos interface.
Your recording is now saved in the app. To play it, tap the recording and then click the play icon.
That’s how you can make voice recordings on your iPhone without using a third-party app.
