Are our notes on the iPhone able to be shared? Definitely! You can share notes from your iPad or iPhone with friends, family, and coworkers, allowing them to edit and add their own comments.
Perhaps the most underutilized and underappreciated app on your phone is the Notes app. In fact, some note apps can now offer features such as images, tables, sketches, and lists that go far beyond simple text input.
Now you don’t need a notepad on your desk to jot down your grocery lists, trip plans, or ideas for projects. Nowadays, everything is online, and if you have an iPhone, use the Notes app to jot down ideas, reminders, and to-do lists.
You can share your notes and keep track of everything on your smartphone, not only because it’s convenient, but also because you can see and edit them in real-time with family, friends, and colleagues. Here’s what you need to do. In this article, we show you how to share a note on iPhone.

Select Airdrop in Control Center
Start by opening the Control Center app on both phones and turning on Airdrop. You can then enable your iPhone to be discovered either by Contacts Only or Everyone, depending on your preference.

Before you begin using iCloud Drive on the old iPhone, make sure your Notes are backed up in iCloud. Ensure your phone is fully charged and connected to a stable Wi-Fi network before you begin backing up.
Switch off the old iPhone after you have completed the backup process. Thus, it will not cause conflicts with existing iCloud Backups.
iCloud Notes can be restored to a new iPhone.
Next, turn on and configure your new iPhone. You can then choose the Restore from the iCloud Backup option under iCloud in Settings. In the next window, you will see a list of all items backed up to iCloud.
Restorative work should begin.
