kjcuserapple,

Thanks for following up, we're happy to help clarify this further. To ensure your notes could transfer to a new device, it's best to create a backup using iTunes. You do not need to "sign up" to create a backup using iTunes. Instead, check out the steps in the article below:

Hi kjcuserapple ,

I understand that you have notes on your iPhone, and you'd like to know if they are included in your backups since you don't sync with any other devices.

If you are not syncing your notes with any internet accounts, then they will be included in an iTunes backup. You can see that they would not be included in an iCloud backup in the article below:

About backups for iOS devices - Apple Support


iCloud backups

With a Wi-Fi network connection, you can make a backup of your device using iCloud. You don’t need to plug your device into a computer or even be at home to back up with iCloud .

iCloud backups include nearly all data and settings stored on your device. iCloud backups don't include:

  • Data that's already stored in iCloud, like Contacts, Calendars, Notes, My Photo Stream, and iCloud Photo Library
  • Data stored in other cloud services, like Gmail and Exchange mail



You can find out if your notes are synced to any other service by checking Settings > Notes > Default Account.

Yes, this answer part of my question, because of course, i"on my phone" makes it just for me then. But I think I still have question, so should I lose my phone, or decide to update to a new one, will even those notes "on my phone" be

able to transfer over then. I think that is a yes?. Also, your answer says all notes would be on an itune backup, but

is that something you sign up for as an additional backup system??
