The Apple support section has led me to do this so forgive me if its wrong.
All i want to do is get to my notes saved to an iCloud back up on the 25th September but i cant find how to get there. It must be completely obvious but i cant see it and its driving me potty now.
Any help would be appreciated
You can not only view a backup of your notes. You will find your backups in "Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > Manage Storage". If you want to restore something than you would have to restore the entire device.
