Question: How to fix iOS Notes Lag issue?

i am using iPhone iOS notes. (IPhone 7S Plus)

I have 7000+ notes and I trust the App.

However, the app keeps crashing or is very laggy. For me to key in a simple note or reminder, it takes very Long for the note to respond to my keyboard.

is it only me or do other people face this issue? How do we fix this?

Hey Sheen_An,

Welcome to Apple Support Communities! With over 7000 notes, I'm sure you're eager to get this keyboard slowness issue resolved for your Notes app. I'll be happy to see if we can get this working like it used to.

Does the keyboard lag only happen when using the Notes app? Is it fine when using any other app?

Also, are you using any third-party keyboards? If you're not sure, use this resource to check:
About the keyboards settings on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - Apple Support

Specifically, you'll use these steps to check for third-party keyboards:

Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards.

If you are using a third-party keyboard, switch to the onboard keyboard using the steps in the article linked above, and let us know if you're still getting that same lag.

Also make sure your device is backed up and updated to the latest iOS version:
Update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support

Let us know how this goes for you.
