Save and manage iPhone notes on PC
If you use your iPhone or iPad like a personal assistant you will probably not only manage your emails, music and contacts on it, but also use the notes app as a kind of aide-mémoire.
Now, if you want to back up your iPhone notes to the PC or transfer them to a new iPhone or iPad, there is no quick solution. You can of course send your notes via email to yourself and copy paste the text again to newly created notes, but this is time-consuming and relatively complicated. The other option is to restore your new iPhone from an iOS backup that you previously saved to the PC or iCloud, but this will also restore all your old settings, apps and probably many other things that you don’t want to transfer to your new iPhone.
This is why I was quite happy to find out about the new feature in CopyTrans Contacts that allows you to easily transfer, edit and export iPhone notes. Continue reading and find out how to manage your iPhone notes with CopyTrans Contacts.
