Change Default Account To Save Notes in iPhone

iPhone has a great feature in their notes which automatically sync itself with the default e-mail account configured in the settings. Once you put anything in the notes application of the iPhone it will automatically be seen as a mail in that e-mail account. Many users who do not primarily use iCloud e-mail account as their primary e-mail ID wish to find these notes in their GMail account.

Generally Apple ID and ‘iCloud’ will be automatically available as the options to sync with the notes but if you have configured the Gmail in your mailbox and allowed the access to notes then you can sync your iPhone notes with the GMail account.

In this post we will mention the method by which you can change the default account with which that note should be synced and if you do not want to add the notes to the default account then how to do it.

Go to Settings and then tap the Notes section, there you will have the option to change the font of the text in the notes or you can choose the default option for the accounts.

Now if you want to add the note to some other account that the default account, then tap the accounts button and then choose any other account.

Now tap the ‘+’ sign and then add any note you want, it will be synced with that account only.


This feature is specifically used then the notes can be categorized in different accounts and if you want to sync a particular with all the accounts (which will never be done by default) then you will have to manually copy and paste that particular in all the accounts. This feature is great especially when your battery is dead or when you have completely restored your iPhone.
