How to Recover Deleted Voice Memos on iPhone/iPad/iPod

Apple encompasses a built-in digital voice recorder in iPhone and many people use this feature a lot. When you have such a recorder in your pocket handy, it will be of great help. Particularly, when you suddenly attend a lecture or when you will have to suddenly conduct an interview, this feature in your phone will be helpful for you. Even, this feature will help to fix a reminder order for you. For instance, when you frequently forget wearing seat belt when you drive car, you can just record your own voice recommending wearing the seat belt. Besides recording, you can listen to your recordings, can trim them and you can also add label to your recordings. But, let us consider that you have recorded something important like class lecture and suddenly, it was deleted due to one reason or another. What will be your reaction? You will feel frustrated, isn't? However, the good news here is that you can recover the deleted recordings with iPhone Data Recovery.


iPhone Data Recovery, as the name of this application denotes, it will help you recover lost data from your iPhone, iPad and iPod. Not just voice memos, you can get back any type of data that was deleted from your iPhone. With this application, you can do a wide range of tasks like retrieving and exporting lost data from any iOS device. You can also retrieve data from iTunes Backup or iCloud. While keeping your current files intact, you can recover lost files to computer and you can also preview the lost file before recovering, so that you can recover just the part that you want.
