I need to delete all the tracks from Voice Memos app in iOS, in order to free up storage on my device. Deleting tracks one at a time is not an option since I have hundreds of them.

I am using an iPod touch 4G.


Open the app and you'll find a little symbol with 3 horizontal stripes in the right bottom corner. You'll get a list and you can tap the memo and click "delete" right afterwards.

Or in iTunes you can select all voice memo's after you've synced them to your PC and delete them from there.

  • As in which way couldn't help you this? – Rob Mar 19 '13 at 15:44
  • First part deletes items one at a time - I need to delete all. Second part deletes tracks off the PC, not off the iOS device. – ted.strauss Mar 19 '13 at 19:49
  • Sync again and they'll be removed – Rob Mar 19 '13 at 19:51
  • @ted.strauss, did the resync do the trick? – Dave Aug 21 '13 at 1:41

I just found another easy way to keep them on your computer and get them off your iPhone!

Just go to the playlist with all your voice memos in iTunes, Select All, press Cmd + i or right click and select information from contextual menu, go to options and change media type to music from voice memos. It will also be transferred within your finder structure to a new artist folder that's called "alan smithees iPhone 5" or whatever and will not be included in your synched voicemail anymore.
