Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

Thanks! ...and, to clarify, you deleted the Apple Notes app itself from the iPhone?

Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

Ok, as you might know, if you deleted the Apple Notes app from the iPhone you have to restore it using the App Store.

On the iPhone, tap the App Store.

tap the Search option

Search for "Apple Notes"

Choose the correct app and tap the iCloud Download icon

This should re-anable it on your iPhone. If you get an error then please let me know exactly what it says.

Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

From a computer, go to https://www.icloud.com/ and sign in with the Apple ID used on your iPhone.

Click the Notes app.

Do you see your Notes?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I did that before contacting u and I saw notes app but it was empty.
Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

Ok, how do you back up your iPhone - with iTunes or is it with iCloud?

Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
iCloud
Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

If you tap Settings > iCloud > Backups, does it show a backup time from prior to you deleting Notes?

Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
6:27pm ystrdy
Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

Ok, there is no guarantee that your Notes are in that back up but it may be your last chance to retrieve them in this case.

Keep in mind that if you restore the backup then your iPhone will be returned to the state it was in at 6:27pm yesterday.

You should be able to do the following to return to the last backup:

tap Settings

tap General

tap Reset

then tap “Erase all content and settings”

When the device restarts, it will display the Setup Assistant. In the Setup Assistant, sign in to iCloud, tap “Restore from a Backup,” then choose from a list of your backups in iCloud.

Your device is restored as follows: Your settings and accounts are restored from the iCloud backup you chose. Your device restarts and begins downloading your purchased music, movies, TV shows, apps, books, Camera Roll, and other content.

You may be asked to enter passwords for iTunes, App Store, and iBookstore accounts to restore purchased items. If your device can’t download the version of an app that was backed up, it downloads the latest version.

Progress bars appear below Home screen icons for apps being downloaded. To make an app a priority for downloading, tap its icon.

To check if the information on your device is fully restored, go to Settings > [your user name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup (OR Settings > iCloud > Backup). Wait until the restore has completely finished to check for Notes.

B4 I do that, isn't Notes automatically backed up by iCloud. I was surprised when I went to iCloud.com and notes was empty. All my pics etc were backed up. I have started to recreate my notes in the new empty notes app and do I have to delete that app b4 backing up.
Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

If you've added Notes to the app do the new ones show up on iCloud?

Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I checked. Im wondering if I had notes turned off in iCloud. If that is true can it ever be retrieved?
Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

If you had Notes syncing in iCloud turned Off then the Notes should have been stored locally and *may* still be in your backup. Otherwise, they are gone sadly.

Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I will restore from backup...if it's there can I have two notes app?
Technician: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 6 months ago

No, not unless you download a third-party Notes app of some sort. However, if you restore from the back up and the Notes are there AND if it shows that iCloud syncing is off for Notes, it should pull your new notes back in as well if you turn that on.
