Free Voice Memo Recovery for iPhone

The iPhone and iPad have lots of features that make life easy for the users. One such feature is the digital voice recorder, which helps users to record the voice. The Voice Memos app in the iPhone comes in handy when you have to suddenly record voice in the lecture, interview or a meeting. But what if you lose the important voice memos that you recorded during a meeting or a lecture?

You might lose the voice memos because of lost, damaged or stolen phone, bricked phone, accidental deletion, virus attack, etc.  There are chances that you might not have created a backup and suddenly lose the important voice memos. In such cases, the data recovery is possible via free iPhone voice memos Recovery Tool.

What You Should Know before iPhone Voice Memo Recovery

In iPhone, the entire data is stored in the SQLite database. When something is removed from your iPhone, it is not actually deleted. On deletion, the storage slot changes from “Allocated” to “Unallocated”. Only the identification tag changes after deletion but the data is actually present in the device. When you continue to use your phone and save new data, it will occupy the “Unallocated” data space and overwrite old one with new data.

So, if you are looking to recover the lost data of your iPhone, you need to know that you should not use your iPhone. This is because if you use the phone for taking new pictures, videos or for installing apps, the new data that is generated will overwrite the deleted data, making it tough to recover.
