Question: My notes didn't copy in a restore from iPad backup
I have an iPad Mini 4 (128 gb) with 110 notes that are listed as "On My iPad."
They are not on the cloud or anywhere else. Just on my iPad.
I bought another iPad Mini 4 (128 gb) to create an identical copy of the other one.
When I did a restore from the old iPad Mini 4, everything looked the same except the Notes.
There were 0 notes on the new iPad Mini 4.
So my questions are:
1. How do I get those 110 notes on my new iPad looking exactly how they look on the old one?
2. I thought having a backup would actually mean ***having a backup.*** So does this mean if my original iPad Mini had died or was stolen, they would've been lost forever even though I had multiple backups of the original iPad Mini?
3. If I have to use iCloud, how can I back up these notes to iCloud so I can access them on the other iPad? (The reason that I don't use iCloud for notes is because I share my Apple account and manage other iPads with several family members who are less technologically proficient, but I don't want them reading my notes!)
4. Is there a way to perhaps backup my notes on to Gmail? (I say this because they used to be a "Yahoo" option in the notes app).
--I've tried clicking the "Edit" button in notes to "Move All" files, but there are no options to move it anywhere else.
--There is no option for getting notes on the "file sharing" portion of iTunes when the iPad Mini is plugged in.
Thanks for any help.
