Methods to Take Notes on iPhone In Easy Way
In this post, I’ll be sharing four of my favorite tricks for taking notes fast and effortlessly on your iPhone with you. So, take out your phone, and let’s begin.
1. Ask Siri
Swift note-taking while on the move is made easy with Siri. For people who are driving or otherwise unable to physically type up their notes, this is a fantastic alternative. Numerous commands are supported by Siri for modifying and adding new notes. Additionally, you can request that it read your notes out loud. To use it follow the steps below:
- To do this, you can either say “Hey Siri“ or long-press the power key to wake up Siri.
- All that is left to perform is to say, “Take a Note.” Now dictate the content of your note, and Siri will transcribe it for you.
2. Via Quick Note
You can quickly take notes by adding the Notes app to the Control Center on your iPhone, which makes it accessible without opening the app and navigating through menus. Follow the steps below:
- Open iPhone Settings > go to the Control Center.
- Now scroll down and look for the Quick Note option and click on the green + icon against it.
- Go back to Settings > tap on Notes > and choose Access Notes from Lock Screen.
You can also set your iPhone to automatically open a new note or resume the last edited one by customizing the settings in the default Notes app’s ‘Quick Note’ feature, which is accessible in the Control Centre.
You should also allow access to the Control Center even when the iPhone is locked. To do so, go to Settings > tap on Face ID & Passcode > now click on Allow Access when Locked > choose Control Center.
3. Customize your iPhone’s Back
You can also create a shortcut on your iPhone by assigning a double or triple tap on the back or back cover of your iPhone to immediately start dictating a new note. Follow the steps below:
- Go to Shortcuts tab > Shortcuts App.
- Now click on the + icon at the top right corner of the screen.
- Search for the Dictate Text option in the Shortcuts app and tap on it to add it to your shortcuts list for easy access and quickly start dictating your notes.
- Customize the location where your dictated notes will be saved by selecting the desired folder within the Notes app using the Folder variable when creating the shortcut.
- By selecting Done in the top right corner, you can store this shortcut.
- In your iPhone’s settings, navigate to Accessibility > choose Touch > click on Back Tap. Here, you can assign a shortcut to the double-tap or triple-tap gesture on the back of your device.
4. Use a Screen Widget
A convenient method for taking notes on your iPhone is by utilizing a lock screen widget. Unfortunately, not all note-taking apps have this feature, including Apple’s own, Apple notes, but you can turn to third-party apps like Sticky Widgets to access this functionality.
Simply download the app, customize your lock screen in the settings, and add the Sticky Widgets New Memo widget for quick and easy note-taking.
