If you want to make sure that all of your voice memos are permanently deleted from your Mac, make sure to turn off iCloud syncing before deleting the app from your Phone. To do this, go into Settings -> Apple ID -> iCloud -> Voice Memos and set it to OFF. Then delete the Voice Memos app from your Phone and any other devices where it is installed.

Finally, if you have accidentally deleted a voice memo but would like to recover it, don’t worry! In the Voice Memos app on your Mac, click the Sidebar button to open up the folder sidebar. Then select Recently Deleted and select the recording you would like to recover.
