Starting with iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and macOS Sonoma, Apple encrypts the titles of voice memos stored in iCloud, in addition to the recordings themselves.
As a result of this change, Apple says that the titles of existing Voice Memos could display only the date and time of the recording on devices running older software versions.
Apple explains in a new support document:
Because of this additional encryption, when you update any of your Apple devices to iOS 17, iPadOS 17, or macOS Sonoma, your devices that you have not yet updated (with older versions of Voice Memos ) can display the date and time of the recording (for example, “2023-08-11T07:53:31Z”) as the title, rather than the previous title of the recording.
Apple has already encrypted voice memo recordings in transit and stores them in an encrypted format, according to the support document.
