The iPhone’s native Voice Memo app is a great app that I use it for a variety of tasks: recording lectures or interviews and taking voice note. Recently, I have a large file which is from a lecture series that I wish to download on my computer and get them off my iPhone to release storage space. How do I locate and transfer this file to computer?

I have already tried the Include Voice Memos option but can’t find the Voice Memo Playlists on iTunes. Additionally, since the file is over 2 hours long in duration, there is no way to mail this file without losing a considerable portion of it. Please help, thanks!

The Voice Memo app on the iPhone is a handy way to record audio in a number of situations such as record memos, a meeting, a footage concert, a lecture, or a speech and so on.
