That rule only seems to apply to devices the player controls themselves, so if the tournament had a recording device or if both players jointly sponsored a recording device it doesn't appear it would trigger that rule.

I'd also imagine that this rule's enforcement would be relaxed when, for instance, a player sets up a phone to record the game and has no access to that phone during the game, since any information the phone is recording (and any resulting processing for cheating) would be inaccessible to the user during the game.
