Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you accidentally deleted something important from your iPhone Notes app? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there!

Luckily, the Notes app on iPhone comes with a handy feature that allows you to easily undo any changes you’ve made. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to undo in iPhone Notes and recover your lost notes.

Step 1: Open the Notes App

To begin, locate and open the Notes app on your iPhone. You can find it on your home screen or by swiping down and using the search bar.

Step 2: Access Recently Deleted

Once you have opened the Notes app, tap on the “Folders” button located at the top-left corner of your screen. This will bring up a menu with different folders and options.

Scroll down and look for “Recently Deleted” under the “ICLOUD” section. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Review Recently Deleted Notes

In the “Recently Deleted” folder, you will find all the notes that have been deleted within the past 30 days. Here, you can review and select the notes you want to recover. The deleted notes are listed in chronological order with their respective deletion dates.


If you are unable to find your deleted note in this folder, it means that it has been permanently deleted beyond recovery.

Step 4: Select and Recover Your Note

To recover a deleted note from this folder, simply tap on it to open it. Once opened, tap on the “Share” icon located at the top-right corner of your screen (represented by a square with an arrow pointing upwards). This will bring up a menu of actions you can perform on the note.

From the action menu, tap on “Move to..” to recover the note. You will then be presented with a list of folders where you can move the note. Select the folder you want to move it back to, or create a new folder if desired.

Step 5: Confirm Recovery

After selecting the destination folder, tap on “Move” located at the top-right corner of your screen. The note will then be moved back to its original location or the folder you selected.

Step 6: Verify Note Recovery

To verify that your note has been successfully recovered, go back to the main folder view by tapping on “Folders” in the top-left corner. Navigate to the folder where you moved or recovered your note. You should now see your previously deleted note restored and accessible.


If you have multiple devices synced with iCloud, make sure that all devices are connected to Wi-Fi and signed in with the same Apple ID for proper synchronization of recovered notes.


You have successfully learned how to undo in iPhone Notes and recover your deleted notes. Remember that this method only works for notes deleted within the past 30 days and stored in iCloud. Regularly backing up your device is also recommended as an additional precautionary measure.


  • Make it a habit to regularly check your “Recently Deleted” folder in Notes for any accidentally deleted notes.
  • You can also use this method to permanently delete notes from the “Recently Deleted” folder if you no longer need them.
  • If you prefer to avoid accidental deletions, consider enabling “Notes” in your iCloud settings to allow automatic backups of your notes.

We hope this tutorial was helpful and that you were able to recover your lost notes. Don’t let accidental deletions get in the way of your productivity – with the undo feature in iPhone Notes, you can easily retrieve any mistakenly deleted notes and keep your important information intact!
