How to Get Voice Memos off iPhone 11/Pro Max/XS/X to Computer without Using iTunes

Voice Memos iPhone X/8/7 Posted by Estrella H.| Last Updated: September 11, 2019

Doubt about the possibility of getting voice memos off iPhone or iPad to computer without iTunes and Wi-Fi? Please read the article below.

On every iPhone, there is an app called "Voice Memos". But sadly and unluckily, unlike for photos and videos, Apple is not designed with the possibility to extract or export the recordings inside of any iPhone or iPad for storage or sharing in non-Apple way. Here are two true stories from some persons around me:

Story 1 from Lisa:
I have a voice recording in my iPhone that is vital as a proof for a dispute that would have a great change to involve in lawsuit. Although it is still not sure if this recording will be used in court, it should have the right for exposure on the web. But how can I get the voice memo recording off iPhone and save it to my USB drive?

Story 2 from Mike:
Several of my close friends and I have a band. Sometimes we play and play and stay up late and suddenly come up with inspirations. I will always record the ensembles via iPhone's Voice Memos feature. Recently, I was very emotional about some audios that I'd recorded in the phone. I wanted to get the voice memos off my iPhone 7 Plus, but ended up with failing to do so, nor could I share them to SNS community, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Get Voice Memos Off iPhone using WinX MediaTrans

To share Voice Memos on iPhone and iPad, people seem to have no choice but to send audio recordings via Apple's default app, say iMessage or Mail. This requires the dependency on Wi-Fi and the use of Apple for the target device.

To send Voice Memos from iPhone/iPad to other device, many users seek help from iTunes. But it is restricted to the primary computer and fussy iTunes installation, update, registration and something else.

Other people will give AirDrop a try only if their device is iOS 7 or later installed, or their Mac is a 2012 or later model with OS X Yosemite or later installed, and only if their Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are available and turned on. Even so, AirDrop gets working errors on Mac and iPhone frequently.

What if the target device you need the voice notes to be downloaded on is not a Mac or iOS device, or has no iTunes and AirDrop?

To make things easier, there is a better way that does not depend on the Apple device or app. WinX MediaTrans is the cure: it allows you to get accesses to your iPhone's Voice Memos app, select part or all of the notes, export and sync them, and save them to any place you like on your Windows Vista/7/8/10 PC or the USB, Thumb drive or external hard drive that is connected to it. Best of all, the voices can be edited and created into ringtones for your iPhone by the same software.
