Hello! You must admit that the built-in “notes” application is a great tool for quickly writing down some text or drawing a picture.

However, few people know that if you use several Apple devices at the same time, whether it is an iPhone or iPad, then there is the ability to easily and easily synchronize notes between them. Yes, and on the computer you can also access them.
