If you ever make a mistake when using Apple Notes, you have a couple of ways to quickly undo and redo your changes. Let’s explore how they work on your iPhone.
This is for devices using Apple Notes. Screenshots are from iPhone XR
Enable Shake to Undo
If you use Notes on your iPhone, let’s ensure that Shake to Undo is enabled. For iOS 15 or higher, head to:
Settings > Accessibility > Touch
and enable the toggle Shake to Undo to ON. Refer to the below image:
Undo/Redo By a Shake
First, make sure the note in which you want to undo or redo changes is open on your iPhone. See the below image:
Next, bring up the Undo menu by shaking your phone. Just do this as if you are shaking a bottle.
Now, you see an Undo Typing menu. Tap Undo here to delete the changes you just made to your note. See the following image:
Next, if you would like to redo your changes, shake your iPhone again. This time, in the Undo Typing menu, tap the Redo Typing option. Refer to the below image:
Undo/Redo By a Menu
If your movement is restricted, use the menu option to undo and redo your changes.
First, on your Note’s screen, tap the Markup icon at the bottom. See the below image:
Next, you will see two icons at the top of your Note’s screen. The arrow pointing in the left direction is for undoing changes, and the arrow pointing in the right direction is for redoing changes. Tap one of these two icons. See the following image:
And your changes will be made to your current note.
Undo Deleted Notes
If you have mistakenly deleted a note, you can also undo that note deletion. Your removed notes are available to restore for up to 30 days.
First, in the Notes app, open the Recently Deleted folder. Refer to the below mage:
Next, in the top right-hand corner, select Edit and choose the note(s) to recover. Then, in the bottom left-hand corner, tap Move. See the below image:
Now, select the folder in which you would like to store your notes. See the following image:
And your deleted notes are now back.
