Why does Apple always make life harder everytime I let them upgrade IOS? Why don't I trust my intuition and stick with the IOS I've got used to? It took me a while to discover that Notes on iphones are associated for an inexplicable reason to an email account and that it defaulted to my gmail account. I then set it to default (for new notes) to an account called 'on my iphone'. Magically IOS 5 synced these notes to my Outlook. Perfect. I 'upgrade' to IOS 6 and Notes 'on my iphone' no longer sync with Outlook (quite apart from now finding the new itunes a nightmare to use).
