Apple might finally bring native call recording feature to iPhone. This has been suggested after a new iOS 14 leak has been spotted with the feature.

It is possible that Apple will fool-proof the native system, and make sure the content is stored securely on the device. It will also alert the caller that the call is being recorded. This makes sure Apple won’t have to face any legal trouble.
