How to Search Within Notes in iOS 11 Notes App on iPhone and iPad

Finding a particular word or term instantly is finally possible within Notes App in iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad. Here is how it works...

Among several highly functional features is there a slightly hidden option to search within notes in iOS 11 Notes app on iPhone. It’s very useful in letting you instantly find out a particular word in a document. So, the next time you want to locate a comment or name in notes, you may not have to go through the entire checklist to pinpoint it!

While writing an article or doing a project, at times I have to search a specific word to ensure a specific thing has been mentioned. “Command/Ctrl+F” shortcut on the computer also becomes very handy for me especially when I’m reading a fairly long article and wish to quickly find out some of the most important parts. I’m very glad that Apple has brought this feature in Notes app for iOS 11 as well to make it a lot easier to find certain things instantly.
