Type notes on iPhone, and iCloud automatically makes them available on your other iOS devices and Mac computers. You can also read and create notes in other accounts, such as Gmail or Yahoo!.

Tap the body of the note to edit it. Tap the compose button to create a new note. Tap the share button to use AirDrop, Messages, or Mail to share the message. Tap the back button to return to the list of notes.
  • See your notes on your other devices. If you use an icloud.com, me.com, or mac.com email address for iCloud, go to Settings > iCloud and turn on Notes. If you use Gmail or another IMAP account for iCloud, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and turn on Notes for the account. Your notes appear on all your other iOS devices and Mac computers that use the same Apple ID.

  • Delete a note. Swipe left over the note in the list of notes.

  • Search for a note. Scroll to the top of a list of notes (or tap the top of the screen) to reveal the search field, then tap the field and type what you’re looking for. You can also search for notes from the Home screen—just drag down the middle of the screen.

  • Share or print. Tap the share button at the bottom of the note. You can share via Messages, Mail, or AirDrop (iPhone 5 or later).
