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.

Note:   If you’re using the updated Notes app on iCloud.com, you can only view notes you added or changed on iCloud.com or on your devices that have iOS 9 and are set up for iCloud Notes.

View a note

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

View or play photos, audio files, maps, and other attachments

While viewing a note that contains attachments, double-click the attachment you want to view or play. The attached content appears in a new window.

You can attach items to notes by using the Notes app on your iOS devices and Mac computers set up for iCloud Notes.

View and edit attached iWork documents

If you’re using the updated Notes app, you can view and edit Pages, Numbers, and Keynote documents you attached using the Notes app on an iOS 9 device.

  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.
