The contents in the app maybe meaningful to you. So the last thing you want to encounter might be losing them as a result of unintentional deletion, freeing up storage, iOS update crashes, jailbreak failure, etc. It's high time for us to learn how to transfer voice memos from iPhone to computer and recover deleted voice memos on iPhone 8/8 Plus/X/7/7 Plus/6/6S.

Part 1: Transfer Voice Memos from iPhone to PC/Mac

Part 2: Recover Deleted Voice Memos from iPhone 8(Plus)/X/7(Plus)/6S/6

When people want to retrieve lost voice memos on iPhone, the idea comes to their mind firstly is to restore the device from an iTunes/iCloud backup. However, there is a shortcoming in this method, that is you cannot selectively restore only voice memos from the backup. The whole data in the backup including contacts, sms, photos, videos and more will be restored. Also, you have the risk of losing the present data on your device. 

You'd better count on a brilliant iPhone recovery program. Yolisoft iPhone Data Recovery is highly recommended. It allows you to preview and get deleted voice memos back on iPhone with no backup or extract them selectively from the iTunes/iCloud backup. In simply 3 steps, the process can be finished: Scan -> Preview -> Recover. iDevices running all iOS versions (including the latest iOS 11) are supported. You can download one on your computer and have a try.
