In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of transferring your iPhone notes to an Android device. Whether you have switched from an iPhone to Android or simply want to have your notes accessible on both devices, this step-by-step guide will help you achieve that.

Step 1: Exporting iPhone Notes

To begin, let’s start by exporting your iPhone notes. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the “Notes” app on your iPhone.
  2. Select the note you want to transfer, or if you want to transfer all notes, skip this step.
  3. Tap on the share icon located at the top-right corner of the screen. It looks like a square with an arrow pointing upwards.
  4. Choose “Mail” from the available options.
  5. Enter your email address and tap on “Send”.

Note: If you have multiple notes to transfer, repeat these steps for each note individually.

Step 2: Importing iPhone Notes to Android

Now that you have exported your iPhone notes, it’s time to import them into your Android device using Google Keep. Here’s how:

  1. Download and install Google Keep from the Google Play Store if you haven’t already.
  2. Open Google Keep.
  3. Create a new note.
    • To create a new note:
      • Type a title for the note in the “Title” field.
      • Type or paste the content of your iPhone note in the note body.
  4. Tap on the three-dot menu icon located at the top-right corner of the screen.
  5. Select “Import”.
  6. Choose “From Gmail” from the available options.
  7. Select the email account you used to send the iPhone notes.
  8. Tap on the email containing your notes.
    • If you sent multiple emails:
      • Select and import each email individually.
      • The notes from each email will be added to Google Keep as separate notes.


If you have a large number of notes to transfer, this process might take some time. Be patient and ensure a stable internet connection throughout the import process.

Step 3: Syncing Google Keep with Android Notes App

To make your transferred iPhone notes easily accessible on your Android device’s default Notes app, follow these final steps:

  1. Open the “Settings” app on your Android device.
  2. Select “Accounts & sync”.
