Notes is the best place to jot down quick thoughts or to save longer notes filled with to-do lists, images, web links, scanned documents, and sketches. And with iCloud, it’s easy to keep all your enabled devices in sync, so you’ll always have your notes with you.


• Create a new note with just a tap.

• Add checklists to your notes. Make a grocery list, a wish list, or a to-do list, then tap to check off items as you go.

• Invite others to join a note. Everyone who joins will see the latest changes.

• Quickly add photos to a note by using the camera from within the app.

• Easily scan paper documents into your notes with the built-in document scanner.

• Add attachments — maps, links, documents, and more — to new or existing notes by using the Share menu in Safari, Maps, and many other apps.

• Use your finger to draw right in your note, choosing from a variety of brush styles and colors.

• Can’t remember which note you added a certain photo or other attachment to? The Attachments Browser makes it easy to find what you’re looking for in one simple view.

• Secure the notes that hold your most personal data — such as financial details, medical information, or website logins — with a password, a fingerprint, or a glance.

• Take handwritten notes on blank, lined, or grid paper using your Apple Pencil and compatible iPad.

• Start new notes instantly without having to log in to your device. Just tap the Lock screen with your Apple Pencil on a compatible iPad or tap New Note in Control Center.

• Use iCloud to keep all your notes stored in the cloud and updated everywhere. Jot down a note on your iPhone, and it will instantly be available on your iPad and Mac.
