Overview of How to use iPhone for Audio Recording 


With the Voice Memos app  (located in the Utilities folder), you can use iPhone as a portable recording device to record your voice for classroom lectures.

You can use your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, or Mac to capture audio, then open recordings on your Mac to edit and share them, use them in other media, and so on.

If Voice Memos is turned on in iCloud settings or preferences, your recording is saved in iCloud and appears automatically on all your devices where you’re signed in with the same Apple ID.

Recordings using the built-in microphone are mono, but you can record stereo using an external stereo microphone that works with iPhone. Look for accessories marked with the Apple “Made for iPhone” or “Works with iPhone” logo.
