For Seniors: Navigate among Notes on iPhone 4S

You have a couple of ways to move among notes you’ve created in the Notes app on your iPhone 4S. You can tap the Notes button to see a list of all notes you’ve created. Tap an individual note to display it again.

Display the notes list on your iPhone 4S

  1. Tap the Notes app icon on the Home screen to open Notes.

  2. Tap the Notes button in the top-left corner of the screen; the notes list appears.

    This list is organized chronologically (the date isn’t indicated if you created the note today).

  3. Tap any note on the list to display it.

Notes names your note, using the first line of text. If you want to rename a note, first display the note, tap at the end of the first line of text, and then tap the Delete key on your onscreen keyboard to delete the old title. Enter a new title; it’s reflected as the name of your note in the notes list.

Move among notes on your iPhone 4S

  1. Tap the Notes app icon on the Home screen to open Notes.

  2. With the notes list displayed (see the previous steps), tap a note to open it.

  3. To move among notes, tap the Next or Previous button (the right- or left-facing arrow at the bottom of the Notes pad).

Because Notes lets you enter multiple notes with the same title — which can cause confusion — name your notes uniquely!

Search for a note on your iPhone 4S

You can search to locate a note that contains certain text. The Search feature lists only notes that contain your search criteria; it doesn’t highlight and show you every instance of the word or words you enter.

  1. Tap the Notes app icon on the Home screen to open Notes.

  2. Tap the Notes button in the top-left corner to display the notes list if it isn’t already displayed.

  3. Press your finger on the middle of the screen and swipe down. The Search field appears above the notes list.

  4. Tap in the Search field. The onscreen keyboard appears.

  5. Begin to enter the search term. All notes that contain matching words appear on the list.

  6. Tap a note to display it and then locate the instance of the matching word the old-fashioned way — by skimming to find it.
