Over time, Notes can accumulate on your iPad, making it harder to find the one you need. There's no sense in letting your Notes List get cluttered up or leaving old content around to confuse you. When you're done with a note, it's time to delete it.


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

The Notes app opens.


With the iPad in landscape orientation, tap a note in the Notes List to open it.

If you're in portrait orientation, tap the Notes button in the upper-left corner to open the Notes list.


Tap the Trash Can button.

The Delete Note button appears.


Tap the Delete Note button.

The note is deleted.
