How to Backup Notes on iPhone

By Emily Watson, Monday, September 25, 2017

"I really like iCloud and how it keeps my iPhone 7 Plus and Mac in sync. But I have one question that how can I backup notes on iPhone? In iCloud.com, there is export options for contacts so I can export and back data up in case iCloud goes wonky, but I don't see such an option in Notes. Thanks for any suggestions."


In fact, there are many ways you can back up iPhone notes. In this post, I'd like to show two most useful ways.

Solution 1: How to Backup iPhone Notes to PC

If you want to backup notes on iPhone to your Windows computer, I would like to recommend FonePaw iOS Data Backup & Restore to you. This software allows you to access the notes that saved on your iPhone X/8/8 Plus/7/7 Plus/SE/6s or in an iPhone backup on your PC.

The following guidance will show you how to do it. Please free download the trial version of the program first.
