How to Use Apple Notes on other devices

If you’re using an Apple device you can easily sync your Apple Notes between devices for anyone with an Apple ID. If you’re planning to switch to an android device or windows, unfortunately, there’s no native app for Windows or Android users. But there’s a way, the web version can be the solution to the problem.

Activate Apple Notes iCloud Sync.

If you use Apple Notes on an Apple device, make sure iCloud sync is turned on so that new notes and changes are synced across all of your devices. This should be enabled by default, but it’s always a good idea to double-check.

On an iPhone or iPad: go to Settings > [Your Name] > iCloud and enable the “Apple Notes” setting:

On a Mac: this can be enabled by checking the “Notes” box under System Preferences > Apple ID.

When taking notes, make sure to save them in your iCloud folders, as offline folders that are device-specific are also possible:

When enabled, new notes will be automatically saved to iCloud.

In a browser, you can access Apple Notes via iCloud.

Because your Mac, iPhone, and iPad are now syncing Apple Notes to iCloud, you can access them via web browser by going to iCloud.com and logging in with your Apple ID.

If you want to log in faster in the future, you may need to pass a two-factor authentication check, so make sure you select “Trust” this computer. You should only trust your own personal computers and smartphones, and never trust a computer or device that you share with others.

Once inside, click “Notes” to access a web-based version of Apple’s Notes app. This allows you to access and edit existing notes, as well as create new ones and share them with other iCloud users.

You can access locked notes by entering your Apple ID password, but you can’t lock existing or new notes.

Make iCloud into a Windows or Android app

Although you can keep Apple Notes open in its own pinned tab, it may be more convenient to convert the web app into an application or shortcut that you can access from your Start menu or Android home screen.

On Windows, you can do this with Chrome or Edge, pin it to your taskbar, and customize the icon if you want. You’ll have to log in now and then, but as long as you “Trust” the browser when entering your two-factor authentication code, the process won’t be as time-consuming.

Android users can do the same thing with Chrome, which adds a shortcut to their home screen. If you prefer a different browser, Hermit is another Android app that can do the same thing as Chrome while being much lighter.
