Q: Recently, I decided to updating my iPhone X to the latest iOS 12, it froze and required me to restore. After restore, all my voice memos were lost. Boo! Luckily I made an iCloud backup, but I have no idea where and how do I find a voice memo in iCloud, is there any way to recover lost voice memos from iCloud after a restore? Many thanks. – Blue Fox from Apple Forum
