How to Save Audio Attachments from Messages on iPad and iPhone

Looking to store audio messages or audio files received on iMessages? Well, the procedure of saving audio files from iMessages is pretty simple. Users must know which person has shared the audio file and when did it happen. Once the audio is saved in the iPad or iPhone device, users can listen it anytime they want, and can make multiple copies of it. 

Audio files stay in iMessages conversation, but users can save it in multiple places by sharing it. When there are thousands of messages in a single conversation box, finding the audio files can get highly difficult. However, Apple has added an additional column of shared files in conversation. It gives the user a little help to see all shared files including audio files, but not the audio messages. Audio files like MP3, m4a, ringtones, podcast clips or any other files can be located easily in iMessages, and here’s the guide to save it on iPad and iPhone.

How to Save Audio Files from Messages on iPad and iPhone

In iPad and iPhone, the procedure to save the audio files is totally the same. However, users must keep their device’s OS up to date.

  • Open Messages app.
  • Open the conversation that has audio files.
  • Click on the contact’s name.
  • Press the info option and view all shared media, photos, links and documents.
  • Choose See All in the document section.
  • Find the audio file and click on it.
  • The audio file will open for preview.
  • Now press the Share icon at the lower left side of the display.
  • It will bring some additional features including Save to Files.
  • Choose Save to Files to upload the audio file in Files app.

After following this, the audio file will be added to Files. File app can be linked with cloud storage, so users can also send the audio file directly into the cloud storage.

After choosing Save to Files option, users will enter in the Files app, and it will ask the user to choose the folder to store the file. Fortunately, users can save files in multiple drives too.

Great thing about this feature is that it does not only save audio files, but users can save any type of file in the Files app. If there’s a video that needs to be saved, then users will have to follow the same procedure.


Files app carries both device and cloud storage. If anyone wants to see every file that exists on their device and cloud storage, they should directly open the Files app. It’s a built-in app on Apple devices. Once a user chooses a share option, they see several installed apps where they can share files quickly.
