Apple's Notes app has been a reliable method for years to write down important ideas, tasks, plans, and more. While there are apps on the market that are more functional than the iOS option, Apple now gives them the chance to earn their money. Here are 14 new features and changes that you'll see with Notes in iOS 13.
There are some great additions, such as: For example, enabled lists that receive a full upgrade, additional information in the search and support for native subfolders in the app. However, Notes is far from the only app that receives updates this year. When you download iOS 13, you'll have over 200 brand new features to test and explore.
New Gallery View
The Attachments icon has been replaced with a view switching button. If you swipe down while viewing your notes on the screen, tap this Gallery View icon to display your notes as a series of thumbnails. Please note that this option will only be displayed for note folders stored in iCloud or "on my iPhone".
If the note in the gallery view contains only text, it will be displayed in the thumbnail view. If the note contains a sketch or an image, this takes up the frame. In this way, you can view your notes in a concise way and find the one you want visually.
Do not worry, just because Apple has given away your attachment icon does not mean you can not view all attachments at the same time! The option still exists directly under a new ellipsis menu (•••) in the upper-right corner of a folder. Find the same menu for your photos and videos, document scans, sketches, websites, and other documents.
The search can now recognize pictures in your notes. It can also find text in scanned documents. This is useful if you need to search an item in an invoice or receipt.
4. Folders can be moved
Folders have been fixed in iOS 12 and earlier. Now you can move it to your heart's content. Just know that this only applies to iCloud or On My iPhone folders, not to third-party accounts. On the main folder page, hold down a folder or subfolder and drag it to the desired location, tap "Edit", and then drag each folder from the three side lines or select "Move This Folder" from the ellipses (•• •) menu in a folder.
You can now add subfolders to your folders in Notes to organize them. In the past, you could only do this with iOS on the iPad (now iPadOS), MacOS or iCloud, although you would see the final results on your iPhone. Just drag one folder over another to turn the first folder into a subfolder.
