15 Things You Didn’t Realize Apple’s Notes App Could Do

The Notes app built into the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch has always been a quick and convenient way to record lists, thoughts, and other random items. It’s traditionally eschewed the bells and whistles that grace many of the best note-taking apps, but Apple beefed up the app in recent years with a healthy dose of new and improved features.

A 2019 update added a gallery view, checklist options, subfolders, and shared folders to the app, and the update to iPadOS 14 and iOS 14 adds a few minor but noteworthy enhancements, including interface and navigation improvements, a better search tool, widget support, and Apple Pencil compatibility.

To take advantage of all the latest features, go to Settings > General > Software Update and install the latest update, if necessary.
