Q:"Recently, I decided to update my iPhone X to the latest iOS 13, it froze and required me to restore. After the 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
