How to Get Notes Back on iPhone

Have you ever accidentally deleted important notes from your iPhone? Don’t worry, there are several methods you can try to recover those lost notes. In this tutorial, we will explore different ways to get your notes back on your iPhone.

Method 1: Restore from iCloud Backup

If you regularly back up your iPhone to iCloud, you can restore your device to a previous backup and retrieve your lost notes. Follow the steps below:

  • Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Step 2: Tap on your name at the top of the Settings screen.
  • Step 3: Select “iCloud” and then tap on “iCloud Backup”.
  • Step 4: Make sure that “iCloud Backup” is turned on and tap on “Back Up Now” to create a new backup of your device. Note that creating a backup may take some time depending on the size of your data.
  • Step 5: Once the backup process is complete, go back to the main Settings screen and tap on “General”.
  • Step 6: Scroll down and select “Reset”. Then choose “Erase All Content and Settings”.
  • Step 7: When prompted, select “Restore from iCloud Backup”.
  • Step 8: Sign in with your Apple ID and choose the most recent backup that contains the notes you want to recover.

Method 2: Recover from Recently Deleted Folder

Your iPhone has a “Recently Deleted” folder for notes, similar to the one in the Photos app. Follow these steps to check if your deleted notes are still recoverable:

  • Step 1: Open the Notes app on your iPhone.
  • Step 2: Tap on the “Back” button at the top left corner of the screen until you reach the main folders view.
  • Step 3: Scroll down and tap on “Recently Deleted”.
  • Step 4: Here, you will find all the notes that have been deleted within the past 30 days.
  • Step 5: To recover a note, simply tap on it and select “Recover”. The note will be restored to its original location.

Method 3: Use Third-Party Data Recovery Software

If neither of the above methods work, you can try using third-party data recovery software specifically designed for iOS devices. These tools can help you recover deleted notes directly from your iPhone or from iTunes backups.


It’s important to note that third-party data recovery software may come at a cost and their effectiveness may vary depending on individual cases. Be sure to choose a reputable software provider and carefully follow their instructions.

In conclusion, losing important notes on your iPhone can be frustrating, but there are ways to get them back. You can restore from an iCloud backup, check your “Recently Deleted” folder, or use third-party data recovery software. Remember to regularly back up your device to avoid losing valuable data in the future.
