Apple will let you record and transcribe phone calls in iOS 18. The company announced the feature during its Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday and says it will automatically tell call participants that they’re being recorded.

The image shared by Apple shows a new recording option on the Phone app, which displays a soundwave, along with how long you’ve been recording. It then transcribes your call in the Notes app, where you can generate a summary using the new Apple Intelligence AI system. You’ll be able to record and transcribe audio from within the Notes app as well.

As noted in the footnote on Apple’s iOS 18 preview page, audio transcription will only be available in English, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, and Portuguese. Bringing audio recording to the Phone app should at least make it easier for journalists and other users to record and transcribe their calls, all while letting the recipient know.

Apple Intelligence took the main stage during WWDC, but there are many other neat features coming to iOS 18, including a customizable homepage, changes to Control Center, improvements to Tapback responses, and more.
