Does iCloud Backup Voice Memos? How to Extract Them from iCloud

Voice memos are a handy way to remember important stuff. They are easy to create and don’t take up too much space on your device. Since they can sometimes contain important information, it is a good idea to back up the voice memos when you can. This way, if you ever lose them you can simply restore the backup and get them back.

In this article, we are going to be looking at whether or not you can back up your voice memos in iCloud and provide you with a simple way to view the Voice memos from your iCloud backup files.

1 Can You Backup Voice Memos in iCloud?

The answer to this question is yes. But while you can include voice memos in an iCloud backup, they are not backed up on a separate location but are a part of the general iOS backup.


2 How do I Ensure that My Voice Memos are Backed up in iCloud?

Unfortunately, there is no way to view the contents of an iOS backup. The only way to get an indication of what is in the backup is to restore the backup to your device and then check to see if the voice memos were restored to the voice memos app. The only problem is that when you restore a backup, you have to erase all the contents and settings on the device which can lead to the loss of data not in the backup. In this case an iCloud backup viewer could help you ensure whether your voice memos are successfully backed up in iCloud.
