Troubleshooting Failed iPhone Memory Exports

Share This:

It can be extremely frustrating when you try to export your iPhone memories, only to be met with an error message. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence and there are several reasons why it might happen. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the most common reasons for export failures and how to fix them.

One of the most common causes of export failure is copyright infringement. If you’re trying to export a memory that contains copyrighted music or images, it’s likely that the software will prevent it from being exported. This is due to Apple’s strict copyright policies, which don’t allow users to share copyrighted content without permission from the original creator.

Another possible cause of an export failure is if your iOS isn’t up-to-date. To ensure everything runs smoothly, make sure you have the latest version of iOS installed on your device before attempting an export. You can check for updates in Settings > General > Software Update or by using iTunes on your computer.

Finally, if you’ve tried all of the above and still can’t get your memory exported, try making multiple memory movies usig different days or months. This could help isolate any possible issues with specific dates and gives you more chances to successfully save your memories.

We hope this blog post has helped you understand some of the causes of failed exports on iPhone memories and how to fix them. If you’re still struggling aftr trying all of these fixes then it may be best to contact Apple support for further assistance.

Understanding Why Memory Is Not Shareable

Your memory may not be shareable for a few reasons. First, the original content may not have had sharing turned on. If this is the case, then you won’t be able to share the memory at all. Second, some memories aren’t designed to be shared, such as posts by other people on your timeline. Lastly, the type of audience you choose when you share something may also affect wheher or not your memory is shareable. Depending on the type of audience you select, some memories may not be allowed to be shared with that audience. For example, if you choose a private audience, then only people in that private audience will be able to view or access your memory.


Unfortunately, exporting photos and videos from iPhone Memories is not currently possible due to copyright restrictions. This means that any Memory movie you create will be unable to use copyrighted music and must be shared using a non-copyrighted music option. Additionally, it’s important to make sure your iOS is up-to-date and that you restart your iPhone regularly in order to ensure the best performance when creating Memories or sharing them with others. While it is unfortunate that there is no way to export photos and videos from iPhone Memories, it is still possible to share them with friends and family by using a non-copyrighted music option.
