How to Make and Use Quick Notes on iPhone

  • You can create a quick note on your iPhone using the share menu or highlighting text in almost any app.
  • With Quick Notes, you can easily save links, lines of text, images, and more without leaving your current app.
  • After you save a quick note, it appears in your iPhone’s Notes app like any other note.

The Notes app that comes with every iPhone is pretty basic and great for jotting down your thoughts and saving links you don’t want to lose. But when you’re scrolling through another app and find something that piques your interest, you don’t always want to have to leave that app to find your notes.

highlight text

Second, you can create a quick note simply by highlighting some text. This is the best method if you only want to save a few sentences, for example.

In order to do this, tap and hold your finger on the text to highlight it, and then stretch the highlight to capture whatever you want to save. The context menu that lets you copy the text will appear above it – keep typing the arrow pointing to the right in this menu until you find New quick noteand tap on this option.
