Tip: How to easily access Notes from iPhone or iPad on your Windows, Mac, or Linux

The native application Grades, which comes with every iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, is very useful for taking last-minute notes or even recording ideas that may serve in the future. I use it myself a lot to write blog articles when I’m on the street; I do the sketch and when I get home, I move to the computer.

Perhaps not everyone knows, but you can access these notes directly from any computer, without even having to connect the device to it.

All this thanks to iCloud, which sends our precious information to the cloud. All you have to do is keep your notes in sync with the cloud and then access the service’s web interface. See how:

Step 1: You must first associate your device with an iCloud account. Go in Settings> iCloud and activate the Grades.

Step 2: Still in the Settings, go to Grades and choose as default account the iCloud. (Note: if you don’t have this option on your device, don’t worry, you’re already connected to iCloud).

Step 3: Open the Notes application, and then Accounts, also choose the iCloud. Create your notes normally on it. (Note: If your notes don’t have this option, don’t worry, you’re already on iCloud).

Step 4: To access what you write on your iPhone or iPad on your computer, open your browser and type icloud.com. Enter your username and password and access your emails. In it, you will see in the left column a folder called Notes. And there, like “a magic trick“, You’ll see all the notes you’ve created on iCloud.

You may notice that many notes that are on your device are not displayed in the browser. This is because they were not created with the iCloud account, but with “My iPhone” (or “My iPad”). But that only happens for those who synced the notes also with the computer, via iTunes, or with some Gmail account. In this case, it is necessary to transfer the notes to the iCloud account, so that they appear on the service page.

The tip can be a hand in the wheel for those who are used to writing notes on the iPhone or iPad and then need them on the computer. ?
