Connect your iPhone using the USB cable and select your device on iTunes. Next, to transfer the notes, you ought to click on File, then Devices and Transfer Purchases. The process will save the content on iPhone to computer. Then you should click Back Up Now to proceed.

  1. If your iPhone is with iOS 11, or later, you probably find no Note icon on AnyTrans for iOS. This is because on iOS 11, or later, there is a little functional limitation for AnyTrans for iOS to access your Notes on iPhone, but temporarily. We will soon bring this feature back.
  2. As for those who have already updated to iOS 11 and need to transfer notes to iPhone to iPhone urgently, transferring notes to new iPhone can still be accomplished by AnyTrans Merge and Clone feature.
