Everything’s back in iTunes!

After the transfer, all your contents are in iTunes, exactly as on your iPhone:

  • music,
  • videos,
  • TV-Shows,
  • podcasts,
  • audio-books,
  • voice memos*,
  • ringtones,
  • playlists, smart playlists
  • tag information: ratings, play counts, album artwork, date added and so forth

Starting from iOS 15, Apple has introduced restrictions that block access to local voice memos. It is no longer possible to transfer voice memos to PC via iTunes.

This also impacts some features of CopyTrans programs.

We have worked out a few great solutions for you to transfer voice memos to PC depending on the iOS version of your device.
