How to Save Notes from iPhone to a Computer

You may have done this before: quickly make a note on your iPhone after answering a phone call from someone, when you're on the way to a place, or write down a restaurant’s name when you're scanning online to find a place for your first date. Making notes on your iPhone, it happens almost every day and everywhere, just because of the convenience it brings us. Sometimes, we do it for our life, like a shopping list, mother's birthday, etc.; sometimes, we do it for our work, like a deadline, a meeting, etc. However, besides reading those notes on our iPhones, can we save and handle them on our computers?

The answer is YES. Saving iPhone notes to a PC or a Mac, you need to have a proper tool, which can help you export your notes from iPhone to computer. My recommendation is Wondershare dr.fone for ios (iPhone Data Recovery for Windows) or Wondershare dr.fone for ios (iPhone data recovery for mac).
