iCloud: View notes

View notes

You can view your up-to-date iCloud notes at any time by using the Notes app on iCloud.com. Notes are listed by last-modified date, with the most recent note at the top of the notes list. The list shows the first few words of each note.

If you put your notes in folders using Notes on your iOS device or Mac, all the notes in your folders are listed together, without folders, in Notes on iCloud.com. However, notes in the Trash folder on your iOS device or Mac aren’t shown in Notes on iCloud.com.

View a note

Go to Notes on iCloud.com, then click a note in the list.

View photos, maps, and other attachments

If you’re using the updated Notes beta app, you can view items you attached in the Notes app on an iOS device with iOS 9 beta or a Mac with OS X v10.11 beta. These attachments can include photos, videos, audio files, sketches, map locations, weblinks, and PDFs.

While viewing a note that contains attachments, double-click the attachment you want to view. The attachment opens in a new window.

View and edit attached iWork documents

If you’re using the updated Notes beta app, you can view and edit Pages, Numbers, and Keynote documents you attached using the Notes app on a device with iOS 9 beta or OS X v10.11 beta.

  1. While viewing a note that contains a Pages, Numbers, or Keynote attachment, double-click the attachment.

    iCloud duplicates the attached document, stores the duplicate in iCloud Drive, and opens the duplicate in Pages, Numbers, or Keynote for iCloud.

  2. After the duplicate of the attached document opens, you can view and edit it.

    Important:   Your changes automatically update the document stored in iCloud Drive, but they don’t change the document attached to your note. You can open the up-to-date document from iCloud Drive using Pages, Numbers, or Keynote on your iOS device (iOS 8 or later), Mac OS X (v10.10 or later), or iCloud.com.

You can also view your iCloud notes in Microsoft Outlook on a Windows computer.
