How to Delete a Voice Memo on an iPhone 6

The Voice Memos app can come in handy if you often have ideas that you want to record, and it is easier to speak them into your iPhone than it is to type them out into an app like Notes. But if you use the Voice Memos app a lot, then the storage space being used by those Voice Memos can accumulate pretty quickly.

If you find that you need to regain some storage space that is being used needlessly by unimportant or unwanted Voice Memos, then it may be time to delete some of them. Our guide below will show you how to delete individual recordings from within the Voice Memos app so that you can reclaim some of your iPhone’s storage space.
