I am currently doing some coursework for my exams, and part of my IT project is to record some audio, and assess it. I recorded this audio on my iPhone, and I plan on using Audacity to edit it. I am having a problem with getting the voice memos off my iPhone, and that's preventing me from doing my coursework. Does anyone know what to do? I use iTunes 11.1.3

If you sync your iPhone with iTunes and have the voice memo syncing enabled, then the voice memos will be transferred to your computer when syncing. The voice memos will show in the Voice Memos playlist.

I have synced my iPhone, but the Voice Memos folder in iTunes is empty. –  Ryan Castle Jun 25 at 16:45
    
@user3775989 Have you enabled Voice Memos syncing in the Music tab for your device in iTunes? –  grgarside Jun 25 at 16:45
    
I have enabled Voice Memos, and I have also retried to sync my iPhone. I deleted the Voice Memos playlist in iTunes, there is no new playlist and no voice memos in iTunes. It's still not working. –  Ryan Castle Jun 25 at 16:52
    
@Ryan What version of iOS are you using? –  grgarside Jun 25 at 16:55
    
I'm using 11.1.3.8 –  Ryan Castle Jun 25 at 17:07

The voice memos do not appear under "voice memos" playlist as expected; instead, they appeared when I tried:

  1. Click My Device > Music
  2. Scroll down the list of individual audio files/songs and voila, there were my memos mixed in with the others.

For some unknown reason, the voice memos did not end up in "Voice Memos" playlist automatically; but they can be moved there to that playlist manually.
