We all know how important it is to be able to save our precious memories, but sometimes it can be difficult to know how to turn them into a format that will last. If you’ve ever wanted to turn your voice memos into MP3s, then this article is for you!
If you’re anything like me, you probably have a lot of voice memos just sitting around on your iPhone (or other iOS device). And while they’re great for quickly recording a thought or idea, they’re not so great for actually listening to later. That’s because the default format for voice memos is .m4a, which isn’t compatible with most media players.
