How to Transfer Voice Memos From iPhone to Computer

Do you have important voice memos on your iPhone that you want to transfer to your computer? Whether it’s for safekeeping, editing, or simply freeing up space on your device, transferring voice memos is a straightforward process. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to transfer your voice memos from your iPhone to your computer, using both iTunes and third-party applications.

Using iTunes

If you prefer using Apple’s official software, iTunes, to manage your files and media, here’s how you can transfer voice memos from your iPhone to your computer:

Step 1: Connect Your iPhone to Your Computer

Start by connecting your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable that came with it. Launch iTunes if it doesn’t open automatically.

Step 2: Access Your Device in iTunes

In the top-left corner of the iTunes window, you’ll find the device icon. Click on it to access your iPhone.

Step 3: Select “Voice Memos”

In the left sidebar, under “Settings,” click on “Music” and check the box next to “Sync Voice Memos.” This will enable synchronization between your iPhone and iTunes.

Step 4: Sync Your Device

To initiate the sync process, click on the “Apply” button in the bottom-right corner of the iTunes window. This action will transfer all selected voice memos from your iPhone to your computer.

Using Third-Party Applications

If you prefer a more direct and user-friendly approach, there are several third-party applications available that specialize in transferring voice memos. One such application is iExplorer.

Step 1: Download and Install iExplorer

Start by downloading and installing iExplorer from the official website onto your computer. Once installed, launch the application.

Step 2: Connect Your iPhone to Your Computer

Connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable. Launch iExplorer if it doesn’t open automatically.

Step 3: Access Voice Memos

In the left sidebar, under “Data,” click on “Voice Memos” to access all your recorded voice memos on your iPhone.

Step 4: Transfer Voice Memos

Select the voice memos you want to transfer by checking the boxes next to them. Then, click on the “Export Selected” button or right-click and choose “Export Voice Memos.” Select a location on your computer to save the files, and iExplorer will transfer them for you.

Congratulations! You have successfully transferred your voice memos from your iPhone to your computer using both iTunes and a third-party application like iExplorer. Now you can easily access, edit, or store them as needed without worrying about losing any important recordings.

Note:

  • If you’re using a Mac, you can also use the built-in Voice Memos app on your device to directly transfer voice memos via AirDrop or email.
  • If you’re using a Windows PC, you can enable iCloud syncing for Voice Memos on both your iPhone and computer, allowing automatic transfer and access to your voice memos through the iCloud website or the iCloud app for Windows.

By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your voice memos are safely stored on your computer, giving you peace of mind and easy access whenever you need them.
