But for most of iPhone users, unexpected voice memo lost happens due to accidentally deletion, iOS upgrading, corruption, etc. Is there any to retrieve deleted voice memos on iPhone? Don’t worry that issue too much. In this article I’ll show you the way of voice memo recovery.
We know if you have synced your iPhone with iTunes since these voice memos were created, the voice memo should be included with your iPhone’s backup. So you can restore your deleted voice memos from your iPhone’s backup. But if you haven’t synced your iPhone with iTunes since these voice memos were created, is there any way to recover the files?
In fact even if you did not get a chance to back-up, you still have a chance to get back your lost voice memo directly from you iPhone. Only a iPhone recovery software is needed: Dr.Fone for iOS.
Both versions of the program allow you to directly scan your iPhone to recover deleted voice memos, so as to extract iTunes backup to get them back. And iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS are supported. Anyway, you should have a try. Download the FREE TRIAL version below. Choose Windows or Mac version as your system.
Next, let’s take the Dr.Fone for Mac as an example to recover iPhone voice memos.
Note: You’d better set your iPhone into the flight mode once you realized that you’ve mistakenly deleted or lost important data, and don’t use your device for anything like syncing with iTunes, because any operation on your device like sending/receiving messages, making/answering calls, etc. can overwrite your lost data and make it unrecoverable.
