One of the features that keep me in great shape is the ability to enable voice memo syncing on iPhone, then have the voice recordings on on my PC.
Spoiler Alert: …
Some guys have asked me; how do I get a voice memo from my iPhone to my Mac? It’s simple and I do is give them a quick rundown to make it work for them. Overtime, I found myself repeating the same thing over and over again.
I asked myself, why not write a tutorial about this, so you can get the link to anyone that wants to enable voice memo syncing on iPhone to their PC? The thought is what has given birth to the answer I have put together in simple practical steps for you.
If you want to transfer voice memos from iPhone to PC, or your voice memos are not showing up in iTunes. I’d advise you to follow the practical steps below to get started.
Enable Voice Memo Syncing On iPhone To PC: What Works

- Now, select “Music” in the left sidebar.
- Check the “Include voice memos” box > Select “Sync” or Apply in the bottom right corner.

Enable Voice Memo Syncing On iPhone To PC: Share Sheet Option
It is possible you are not using your primary PC for syncing with your iTunes and you are not ready to go through the frustration with starting a new synchronization on a PC that is not yours.
The best option would be do use the popular Share Sheet option to easily get your voice memos in your iPhone or iPad to your PC.
Open AirDrop and ensure you have the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi turned on in your iPhone and Mac. Once you have verified that they are both enabled on both devices, you should carry out the next practical steps below:
- Open Voice Memos in your iPhone or iPad.
- Find the track you like to move to your Mac.

My Mac Doesn’t Support AirDrop
Alright, you are not alone, but it doesn’t mean you have exhausted your entire lifeline to make this operation work. You will still be able to enable voice memo sync from iPhone to your PC using the old-school text message.
Follow the steps below to transfer your voice memos in your iPhone to your computer:
- Open voice memos on your iPhone or iPad.
- Select the track you want to transfer to your computer.
- Now, tap the “Share” button and tap “Messages”.
- You will address the new iMessage to your iCloud address and tap “Send”.
You can then download the voice memos on your PC by accessing that message using the popular OS X Messages application.
Your voice memo recordings are mixed with your music track, so there is no special folder where voice memo are stored. If you are unable to sync your voice memos using the first option above, you may need to trim the voice memo before you can send sync it.
To do so, simple open the “Voice Memos” in your device, locate and tap the “Menu” button, then tap the arrow close to the recording that won’t sync to your PC. You will see “Trim Memo” > “Trim Voice Memo”. This should enable you sync voice memo in your iPhone to your PC. Cheers!
