How to Automatically Delete Voice Memos in iOS 12 on iPhone and iPad

Some of you may want to auto delete voice memos on your iOS 12 devices to prevent the unwanted recordings from piling up. Jump over to discover how it's done the quick way!

“Voice Memos” has been completely redesigned in iOS 12 to be more intuitive. I have given it a try and found it pretty good. There are a couple of features that have caught my eyes in the app. While one is the ability to change audio quality, the other is to auto delete voice memos.

You get the option to preset the time after which the recordings will be removed automatically. For instance, you can choose to get rid of them immediately or after certain days. If you want to keep them forever, you also have the option to do that.
