Apple Notes Part II

The Complete Guide to Apple Notes, Part II


In last month’s Part I of this guide, we learned about how to create a note in Apple Notes, a sometimes hidden gem of an app found on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers. In this tip, we’ll learn how to get even more out of Apple Notes. Once you’ve created a note, there’s still a whole lot more you can do. To unleash the power of Notes, tap the circular plus button on the right.

You’ll see four options, but for now, we will focus on the Aa button.

This button gives you options for formatting your text. You can turn a line of text into a title; a heading; or a bulleted, numbered, or dashed checklist.

To bold or italicize, select the text you want to format. This will produce a pop-up menu, where you will see the BIU option. From there you can bold, italicize, or underline the selected text.

The Notes app lets you insert images in your notes. To add an image, click the big plus button and then the camera icon.

You can either take a new picture using your iPhone or iPad camera or you can simply add an existing image from the Photo Library. It really is as simple as that.

In Part III, we’ll look at how to get even more out of your notes.
