How to transfer Samsung Notes to iPhone

If you're a Samsung user who recently made the switch to an iPhone 15 or another model, you might be looking to transfer your Samsung Notes to your new iPhone.

Since iOS doesn't have the Samsung Notes app, accessing your notes on your new iPhone isn't straightforward, but it's not impossible. There are several methods available to help you transfer your essential notes to your iPhone.

In this guide, we will explore different methods to transfer Samsung Notes to iPhone, so you can seamlessly access your valuable notes on your new device.

How to transfer Samsung Notes to iPhone

Samsung Notes offers a convenient "Sync to Microsoft OneNote" feature. So the easiest way to transfer your Samsung Notes to an iPhone is to install the OneNote app on your new iPhone, ensuring seamless access to your notes.

Alternatively, you can use other note-taking apps like Evernote or Google Keep, but it's worth noting that you'll need to manually export your notes from the Samsung Notes app to these services since there's no automatic synchronization available.

With OneNote, everything is seamlessly synced. Any new note you create in the Samsung Notes app will be instantly accessible on your iPhone without requiring any manual intervention, which is why it's our recommended method.

If you require assistance with syncing your notes to OneNote, you can refer to Samsung's guide on this matter.

An alternate option

The method mentioned above involves the use of a third-party app like OneNote. However, there is a way to transfer all your notes from the Samsung Notes app directly into the native Notes app on your iPhone.

Here's how to transfer your Samsung Notes to the Notes app on your iPhone:

  • Install Samsung Notes onto your Windows PC.
  • Now, log in to your iCloud via a browser.
  • Once logged in, open the Notes app in iCloud and copy-paste all the notes you want to transfer.
  • On your iPhone, make sure iCloud sync for Apple Notes is enabled.
  • Your notes will automatically appear in the Apple Notes app after completing these steps.

This method involves manual copying and pasting of your notes from Samsung Notes to Apple Notes. Therefore, it may not be the most recommended option if you have a large number of notes to transfer, as it could be time-consuming.
