tips Method 3. Save iPhone XS Voicemail As Voice Memos or Notes

If you updated your iPhone to iOS 9 or later, you have gained the ability to save voicemails as notes or voice memos, or share them directly as audio files with Messages, Mail or Airdrop. This can prove quite useful, if you ask me. Before iOS 9, your voicemails were confined to the Phone app as there was no way to get them out of there.

Step 1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.

Step 2. Tap on the Voicemail tab at the bottom.

Step 3. Choose the voicemail message you’d like to save and hit the Share phone-voicemail-share-icon. icon.

Step 4. Now select Notes or Voice Memos options in the top row of the Share menu. You can choose to add your voicemail to an existing note or save it as a new note.
