Here's the takeoff of a 787 recorded using the stereo mics of an iPhone XR from one of my flights last year.

Sorry about the constant blips. I did not have headphones connected at the time and thought I had it turned down far enough to be inaudible. They're actually a neat accessibility feature in the iOS camera that tells you if you're leveled or holding the phone at an angle, guiding you to take better photos even if you can't see what you're doing.

Well, I say photos, but it also applies to videos. It also tells you if faces are in shot, and you can even use the on-device image recognition to get a quick description of what the camera's looking at.
