For Seniors: Delete a Note on iPhone 4S

When you’re done with a note in the Notes app on your iPhone 4S, it’s time to delete it. There’s no sense in letting your notes list get cluttered, making it harder to find the ones you need.

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

  2. Tap a note in the notes list to open it.

  3. Tap the Trash Can button.


  4. Tap the Delete Note button that appears. The note is deleted.


Notes is a nice little application, but it’s limited. It offers no formatting tools or ways to print the content you enter. You can’t paste pictures into Notes. (You can try, but it won’t work: Only the filename appears, not the image.)

So, if you’ve made some notes and want to graduate to building a more robust document in a word processor, you have a couple of options. One way is to buy the Pages word processor application for iPad, which costs about $9.99, and copy your note.

Alternatively, you can send the note to yourself in an e-mail message or sync it to your computer. Open the e-mail or note and copy and paste its text into a full-fledged word processor, and you’re good to go.
