iPad Quick Notes Tips & Tricks
- Hide Quick Note by holding the top of the window and sliding it left or right. The interface collapses and a vertical bar with an arrow serves as a reminder that Quick Note waits in the background. Tap the arrow to bring back the Quick Notes window and continue writing.
- More Quick Notes are possible if you want to save multiple ideas in separate notes. Use the new Quick Note icon available in the top-right corner of the floating window.
- The Quick Notes folder is now a new stock folder in Notes.
All Quick Notes are saved in this folder and can be accessed via iCloud on other Apple devices that are connected to the same Apple ID.
Tip: Quick Notes appear on iPhone too, although in iOS 15 you can only create standard notes.
- Add A Link from websites or apps to a Quick Note to create context. This feature is automatically suggested in the Quick Note window, if you access it while browsing Safari or other web related apps.
Fact: A thumbnail of the previous quick note is briefly displayed in the bottom-right corner whenever you return to the web page in question to remind you about an existing note that you can continue to build on.
