Every iPhone comes with a Voice Memos App that allows users to record their voice or any other type of audio such as a speech using the device's in-built microphone. The audio that you record using the Voice Memos App is usually of high quality and you can save and choose to share the recorded audio with any other device including another iPhone, Mac Android device or even a Windows PC.

The iPhone microphone can record audio even at a distance, but for the best quality of sound, it is a good idea to have the subject as close as possible to the iPhone's microphone. It may also be a good idea to use an external microphone or the bundle headphones that come with the iPhone.
